Coming Together: Responding to Unfinished Learning and Supporting Social-Emotional Health in the 2021-2022 School Year

September 9, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Free

The 2020-2021 school year was unlike any in modern memory and has left many asking the question: Are kids prepared for the year ahead? While the pandemic has created much that is unprecedented, unfinished learning is not new. Wilton’s educators are well-prepared to re-engage students in the concepts they’ll need to master in order to successfully navigate the upcoming year’s curriculum; as family members, there is a great deal that can be done to support them in the process.

Please join a panel discussion led by Wilton Public Schools Assistant Superintendent, Dr. Charles Smith Ed.D., that will address the district’s response to unfinished learning and plans for implementing a prioritized curriculum in the upcoming school year. In addition to WPS staff members, Tracey Masella L.C.S.W., will join the panel to offer guidance on how families can support students and foster social-emotional well-being as kids make the transition back to full-time school.

Panelists:

Charles Smith, Ed.D. — WPS Assistant Superintendent, Curriculum and Instruction
Andrea Leonardi — WPS Assistant Superintendent, Special Services
Trudy Denton — WPS Curriculum Coordinator – Math/Science
Karen Brenneke — WPS Curriculum Coordinator – Humanities
Kim Zemo, L.C.S.W — WPS, Safe School Climate Coordinator
Tracey Masella, L.C.S.W — Private Practice, Silver Hill Hospital

This program is appropriate for parents of first-12th grade students.

Questions can be submitted to the panel in advance via email.

Sponsored by: Wilton Public Schools, Wilton Youth Council, Silver Hill Hospital, SPED*NET Wilton, and Wilton SEPTA
