What WES Parents Say About the 7 Habits
Community Service Students collect pop tabs for the Ronald McDonald House. Students collect toys for families in need. Students make cookies to deliver to a nursing home. Students help make our school beautiful by planting flowers.
Bringing the Community to WES Our students taught several OSU student- athletes about the 7 Habits.
Making a Difference Four areas in which we would expect to see improvement – Academic growth – Behavior – Student engagement – Culture/climate
Academic Growth Data Notebooks – One of the most effective Formative Instructional Practices is students taking ownership for their learning. In Data Notebooks, students track/graph their learning and set goals and can articulate their own strengths and areas for growth. – Prior to renewal - 0% of students tracked their learning in Data Notebooks – Now – 100% of our students track their learning and growth through Data Notebooks
