Dear Stratton families:
At Stratton School, we have an unusual amount of partnerships and collaborations with outside organizations. We partner in our early childhood classrooms with Lesley University, I've connected with Boston College's project to improve supervision of Science instruction, Eileen Catizone has a proprietary Phonemic Awareness early literacy program that is the subject of workshops at EDCO - I could go on! One of these connections has strengthened over the past year between our Math instructional coach, Liz VanCleef, who is a contributing author to our Investigations Math program, and other authors of the program. They have been in classrooms at Stratton, observing excellent practice, and using the observations to inform future iterations. The following is a link to the blog post of what Karen observed in one of our 1st grade classrooms, Karla being an alibi! https://investigations.terc.edu/this-is-only-getting-better-and-harder/
I am grateful to all of the faculty for being such consummate learners, interested in connecting with the world outside the school to make the learning even better for the children.

All Kindergarten students will be screened as required under Massachusetts General Law. A Kindergarten teacher or a school staff member will ask each child to do a series of simple tasks. The screening generally takes 30 minutes. During this time, you will be asked to fill out some paperwork and have a chance to connect with current Stratton staff members.
