The Back to School Workshop was a wonderful opportunity for parents to visit their child’s classroom and learn more about the curriculum and innovative learning opportunities their child will experience at D-PREP this year!
The workshop began with Leadership and Specials teachers discussing specifics to our curriculum, IB, and Special class goals and integration. The homeroom teachers provided more information on the class PYP projects and how the three curriculum dimensions are integrated into the classroom: Mastery of Knowledge and Skills, High-Quality Student Work, and Character. During the workshop, the teachers invited the parents for interactive lessons that involved classroom center work and activities so that they would be able to familiarize themselves with what their children do during the day. Some classes also prepared a note or a class message activity for parents to surprise their children when they returned to school the next day. Overall, the Back to School Workshop proved to be a great opportunity for parents to get to know their teachers better and the work that they do with their children.
