Meet in the Woodlin All-Purpose Room (cafeteria). The PTA provides pizza and child care (thanks to Kids After Hours).
There will be pizza and mingling starting at 6:30 in the All-Purpose Room. The formal part of the meeting will start at 7:00 in the media center. We will be joined by Dr. Peter Moran, one of MCPS’s Directors of Learning, Achievement, and Administration. In his capacity, he oversees three of the High School Clusters within MCPS, including Einstein HS and all of the Elementary and Middle Schools that feed into Einstein. Dr. Moran will talk about overall MCPS initiatives in instruction and curriculum and what he’d like to see for both Woodlin ES and Sligo MS in the next few years.
Following Dr. Moran, Principal Jackson and Vice Principal Scott will provide an update about activities going on in Woodlin, including how the first round of Responsive Classroom implementation has been working and what is coming next. We will also also hear from some of the teachers about how they see it working within the classroom and how the kids are responding to the new approach. Last year, the PTA provided funding to Woodlin to train teachers from each grade level in Responsive Classroom. The Responsive Classroom approach recognizes that academic success is linked with social and emotional skills and supports the teaching of positive social skills while teaching academics.
We will have time for questions for Dr. Moran and Woodlin administrators, as well as some PTA-related updates.
