First Institute Day Inspires Teachers

"I am proud to be part of D102's close family culture which focuses on preparing the whole child for the future," noted Board of Education member Jeremy Galfield at the August 20 Teacher Institute Day. As a former teacher, he read Stand Tall Molly Lou Melon and asked teachers to reach out to the child who needs extra encouragement to believe in him/herself.

Project Based Learning Introduced to Teachers on Institute Day

Meridian and Aptakisic teachers spent nearly seven hours with PBL expert Dayna Laur, author of Authentic Learning Experiences: A Real-World Approach to Project-Based Learning, during the Teacher Institute Day in August. They learned how Project Based Learning (PBL) will take our rich content and connect it to college, career, and the world beyond. When teaching to the whole child, PBL ignites a purpose in students by providing an experience to help lessons make sense.


D102 Summer School Huge Success

More than 870 students attended summer school to improve or nurture academic interests. Some strengthened their reading, writing, mathematical, science and communication sills through Bridges, English Learners Language, or Extended School Year camps. Others advanced interests and talents through Summer Wonders classes. 

Eighth Graders Help Distribute iPads, Guide Peers with Set-Up

On August 18, AJHS students began picking up their iPads for the 2014-2015 school year. Eighth graders volunteered to work one of the five iPad set-up stations during Aptakisic's two-day distribution. Helping with the process provided an invaluable learning opportunity for students, as well as a way to earn service hours toward National Junior Honor Society requirements. Students at Meridian will be receiving iPads after school starts. Read more about D102's Personal Technology Initiative at https://sites.google.com/a/d102.org/pti//.

This orientation was a cumulative learning experience for new teachers that began with Dr. Brua's new-teacher summer academy courses. Staff met their mentors and then spent the afternoon preparing their classrooms. Everyone is ready and looking forward to meeting students on the first day of school.
