Letter from the Head: Community Service at Elmwood Franklin
Friday, October 3, 2014

As September turns into October, our students are beginning to plan and execute various service learning projects. At Elmwood Franklin School, we teach our students to think beyond. While this has many meanings, one of the purest is to have them think beyond themselves by taking care of others. This lesson is reflected in our school-wide service-learning program, which encourages students to view community service as a way of life and not a requirement.

We are off and running! The 2014-2015 academic year is off to a great start and I want to thank everyone for their positive energy and ideas.

I thought I was escaping the heat when we moved up from Maryland, but I think it followed us. This last week has been a burner for sure, but while we enjoy this recent break from the heat, I thought I would also take a break and pen my first letter to you all.

Code Dependent
Tuesday, June 3, 2014

Students have been visiting the computer lab not just as computer users but as computer programmers—practicing coding skills they’ve been learning as part of an addition to the technology curriculum. On a recent morning, seventh graders could be found applying basic coding concepts such as sequencing, looping, and conditionals in tutorials that were playful and fun.
