Ready, Set, LEAD!
2017/18 saw the highly successful inaugural year of Westmount’s Elementary Campus LEAD program. This exciting program is unique to Westmount Charter School. Students are provided the opportunity to learn about and do things beyond the knowledge and skills of the curriculum. One of those very exciting opportunities is through our LEAD program.
The sky’s the limit for teachers with this class! Teachers are asked to dig deep into their tickle trunks, explore their passion areas and create a seventy-minute class that inspires students to Learn, Explore, Acquire and Discover = LEAD!
During LEAD, students will be regrouped into multi-aged groupings. Grades One and Two will be regrouped into 10 groups and Grades Three and Four will be regrouped into 10 groups. (Grades 1 & 2 teachers, Ms. Roy & Mrs. Landu and Ms. Stovell) (Grades 3 & 4 teachers, Ms. Roy & Mrs. Landu and Mrs. Bagnall).
LEAD classes will run for 6-7 weeks with three rounds over the course of the school year.
