ParentWorkshop

From their first day of school to graduation day, Chadwick students are learning and practicing strategies to become better writers. Literacy skills are an important building block not just for future education, but also for social development and fulfilling their roles as global citizens. 

In recent virtual Parent Workshops, literacy expert Matt Glover provided advice on how parents can support their budding young authors at home. Sharing books by writers as young as three, he pointed out how, by looking closely, the books reveal the depth of students’ thinking and conceptual understanding. If parents wait for their children to be able to spell and construct paragraphs before recognizing them as writers, valuable opportunities to nurture their growth will have been missed. 

Parents can greatly influence their children’s progression as writers by appreciating their early attempts and encouraging their efforts. Parents can also gently guide their children’s writing, as long as they are mindful not to give too much advice at once. Comparing it to learning a new language, how to dance, or how to drive, Mr. Glover reminded parents that “how” we are taught a new skill can greatly influence our feelings about it. 

The Parent Workshop, which received more than 400 views, complements the professional development training Mr. Glover is leading for Village School teachers this fall. When parents apply the same strategies at home that teachers are using at school, students’ writing will naturally flourish.

This year, in every grade and classroom, one lesson will be the same. Each of us must follow the three W’s.

This year, in every grade and classroom, one lesson will be the same. Each of us must follow the three W’s in order to help reduce the risk of COVID-19 in our community.

1.  Wash your hands
2.  Wear a mask
3.  Watch your distance

At Chadwick, the three W’s are being reinforced throughout the day to help students build healthy hygiene habits. There is time scheduled into the school day for students to wash their hands regularly, such as when they arrive at school, before snack and lunch, and after recess. Students are required to wear masks while on campus at all times unless they are eating lunch or participating in a supervised mask break outdoors. Finally, students are being taught how to maintain the proper distance from classmates while going about their daily activities. They are becoming familiar with using one-way hallways, leaving two arms-length of space while waiting in line, and keeping to their assigned seats. Reinforcing these safety practices now builds a strong foundation for the Chadwick community to have a safe and healthy school year.

On June 23, the Roessler-Chadwick Foundation Group announced the establishment of a new Chadwick School campus in Hanoi, Vietnam. This new campus, in addition to Chadwick’s current schools in Songdo, Korea and Palos Verdes, California, will allow Chadwick Schools the opportunity to reach more students and advance its Mission to develop global citizens with keen minds, exemplary character, self-knowledge, and the ability to lead.

The Chadwick campus in Vietnam will open in August of 2022 at the earliest, and is expected to enroll up to 2,000 students PK-12 when fully operational. It will be located in Ecopark, the largest new ecological urban development in northern Vietnam. 

With Chadwick Schools offering a world-class education spanning multiple continents, the network of Chadwick students, faculty, and alumni will have new opportunities to collaborate, innovate, and make positive contributions to their local, national, and global communities and professions.

On Saturday, June 6, Chadwick International hosted its fifth Commencement Ceremony. Graduates and their parents were able to celebrate this special occasion together on campus. 

The Class of 2020 is a remarkable group of students who inspired their teachers and fellow students with their passion, drive, and resiliency. As they join the ranks of Chadwick’s distinguished alumni, they will undoubtedly go on to positively influence their future schools, communities, and professions.
