Thousands of Winchester children are using educational technology to explore, create and learn.
Not What We Bargained for...
But, we are going to make this school year a good one! Whether your students are working fully remotely or following the hybrid model, WFEE understands everyone needs help this year. To date, WFEE has provided:
Supplies for students learning at home
Additional training for educators around distance learning
Both mindfulness training for educators and support as they work with students who have heightened anxiety.
As the 2020 school unfolds WFEE is exploring creating enhanced programming for elementary students during their remote learning days.
Stay tuned for more about The WFEE Academy!
Some traditions just can't be skipped.
That is why we decided to turn Authorfest into a virtual event over 4 Wednesdays in January. Get all the details here.
New to Authorfest this year are a number of award winning authors and illustrators including Don Tate. Tate will be talking about his brand new book, William Still and His Freedom Stories.
McCall Middle School will welcome Padma Venkatraman, also known as T.V. Padma, who will talk about The Bridge Home.
Determined to start the year with hope, a group of WHS students turned to WFEE for help. Their plan? Make spring of 2021 something special by working with 4th grade students to plant 1,200 tulip bulbs at elementary schools across the district. WFEE bought the supplies, the high school students created curriculum about plants, presented it in Zoom meetings at the elementary schools and then in October scores of students went to work transforming the landscape. Why did the high schoolers do it? They wanted to make the younger students feel better.
"School is not going to be normal this year. Kids have been through a lot in the last few months."
