This year we are excited to announce a brand new digital literacy curriculum for our students. The curriculum will be delivered to the students through the use of technology and effective research-based teaching strategies. Each student will be issued a Chromebook to best access the digital curriculum. The Chromebook is an outstanding tool for students to create, collaborate, communicate and critically think. Students will use the Chromebooks, along with an online digital platform, to focus on grade level standards. Along with tested reading strategies, students will be able to focus on their skills in ways that are more individualized and practical. There will be a MANDATORY parent meeting for all parents in the first weeks of school. The purpose of the meeting is to inform you about the Chromebooks and the digital learning environment. Parents need to attend the meeting in order for students to bring the Chromebooks home. More information about this meeting will be coming soon.
A few important details to note for the new year:
Greenwood will be serving breakfast again this year. Buses will arrive at Greenwood at 7:10 and we will serve breakfast in the cafeteria at this time. Students who are not eating breakfast will gather in the gym. The first bell will ring at 7:20 and students will make their way to the classrooms. At 7:30 all students will start their academic day.
You are invited to our annual Meet the Teacher and School Supply Drop-off on Wednesday, August 17 from 1:00pm - 3:00pm. This event is designed for you and your child to get into the classroom, say “hello” to your child’s teacher, and unload those heavy school supplies.
At Greenwood, we believe in the Greenwood Way. All students are expected to Be Respectful, Be Responsible and Be Ready. Please talk to your child about what that means at home and how this can be transferred over to school. We are very proud of the student behavior at Greenwood and we would like to keep the tradition of teaching students to be good learners and also good citizens.
