ANNOUNCEMENTS

Spring is here! The waiting for longer, warmer days is over. It is time to open the windows; let the sunshine in; and enjoy the sound of birds chirping. It is also time for reflection.

Here at Mount Pleasant Blythedale, winter left behind many wonderful memories. Students and teachers embraced new learning opportunities.Our students spent the last weeks of winter growing as learners. They celebrated Women’s History Month by studying some great women that have shaped our society; women who contributed to the world of science, art, and sports; and women, like Ruth Bader Ginsburg who dared to challenge the system and push past discrimination. High school students worked with Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival (HVSF). They immersed themselves in the reading of Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare. Through reading the play, students learned the art of persuasion using ethos, pathos and logos. Middle and elementary school students—in addition to their usual academic rigor—used the third quarter to prepare for the NY State ELA and Math assessments. Teachers’ monthly professional development faculty meetings, led by teachers, focused on the topics accountable talk, differentiation, and engagement. Teachers participated in learning walks, visiting classrooms to observe colleagues implementing these instructional strategies. Overall it was a wonderful quarter of learning and growing for all at MPB.
