In other words, the test is designed to be at the level of each particular student. We were told in a professional development…

Identity Day

Posted by Jennifer Fariello on October 31, 2011 at 3:29pm 1 Comment

I read this article about Identity Day and thought it would be a good idea to share. So often people go through life without really knowing their neighbor.  I thought the creation of Identity Day that this school established was quite honorable.  Each student, teacher, and staff member of the K-6 school participated in the assignment.  I hope you enjoy it like it did. http://georgecouros.ca/blog/archives/791
