Child Protection Curriculum
Parent Meeting
A presentation by Keith Gauley, Stony Brook Principal; Joanna Hughes, Eddy Principal; Barbara Doucette, Eddy School Psychologist; Sonja Bono, Eddy Adjustment Counselor; Missy Carpenter, Stony Brook School Psychologist
We’ve wrapped up our Jr. Great Books units in all grades this month, so I took some time to select winter poetry to enjoy with the students. This was a great way to explore vocabulary and word choice. In math, we’ve been working with open-ended exploratory problems in addition, and composing/decomposing numbers using complex number bonds. In grades 1 and 2, we’ve also been graphing coordinate pairs to create holiday images.

Microscopic Structures begins on January 7. If your child has been enrolled in this program, I’ll be communicating with you via email. I have put together what I think is an engaging unit, including picture books, videos, crafts, and an observation journal….in addition to the actual microscopes!
