On Wednesday, June 5, Woodland Elementary School held its annual English Learner Reclassification ceremony, celebrating students who have achieved English proficiency and are no longer classified as English Learners. These students demonstrated their skills by passing the WIDA ACCESS test, which assesses reading, writing, speaking, and listening at a high standard. This year, a record-breaking 105 students, representing approximately 25% of Woodland's English Learner population, were reclassified. This milestone is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the students, their families, and the school staff. Many of these students began their educational journey with little to no knowledge of English, and through rigorous instruction and immersion, have attained a remarkable level of proficiency. As newly multilingual individuals, these students should be proud of their achievements, recognizing that their language skills are a valuable asset that will benefit them throughout their lives, enhancing cognitive abilities, creativity, and problem-solving skills. They are encouraged to continue using and developing their language abilities at school, at home, and within the community.

Memorial Elementary School (MES)

School Social Workers Anita Amante and Talita Rodovalho led a lesson for 2nd-grade classes at both Memorial and Brookside schools, aimed at fostering classroom community, inclusiveness, and a sense of belonging. The lesson began with a reading of Amigo by Carlos Zamora. Following the story, students engaged in a group discussion using prompt cards from the Lakeshore Diversity and Inclusion set (K-2) to explore questions and ideas about diversity and inclusion. To promote movement and interaction, the lesson concluded with a "Find a Friend Who" activity, where students moved around the classroom to connect with their classmates. PTO Meetings are held the first Wednesday of each month at 7 p.m. unless otherwise posted.

Brookside Elementary School (BES)

During the first two weeks of June, Brookside Elementary School students participated in off campus learning experiences. Kindergartners participated at Capron Park Zoo, first grade students went to the Ecotarium, and second grade students went to Southwick’s Zoo.

PTO meeting is the first Tuesday of each month starting at 7 p.m.
