• WOW Wednesday!

    WOW Wednesdays provide teachers with an extra block of time for academic and social/emotional learning differentiation. All students participate in a weekly 56-minute WOW Wednesday sessions between first and second period providing additional remediation and enrichment opportunities. These activities may include special projects, hands on activities, an opportunity to make up missed assignments, Restorative Circles, and more. Because every staff member participates in WOW Wednesdays, the student to teacher ratio can be smaller than in a normal class. WOW Wednesdays were designed to give teachers an opportunity to regroup students on a more regular and fluid basis and craft activities that are aligned with individual student needs. Our hope is that by having this differentiated block of time, student growth will increase.
