I am so pleased that our faculty is always asking for the opportunity to learn more. Soon, we will benefit from a professional growth opportunity offered by the University of San Diego, School of Leadership and Education Sciences (SOLES).
Each summer, USD/ SOLES offers a Character Education Conference highlighted with presentations and workshops by the best in the field. This is a wonderful chance to boost our commitment to this program and gain new insights and ideas. Eleven WWS staff members will attend in late June.
Research affirms that a strong character education program is essential to maintaining high academic performance in a school. We have believed this for years, and continue to place it at the top of our goals for our students. Instilling a sense of responsibility and respect in students enables them to accomplish a great deal in our multi-faceted program. Last week’s Artz Night at the Middle School was a remarkable indicator of those accomplishments by all students in all subject areas, as well as, highly entertaining!
