Dr. Mortimer and the Westwood Regional elementary principals visited the Responsive Classroom program at Washington School in Wyckoff this morning. Response Classroom is a social/emotional program that our District will adopt next year. It is a mechanism to create "safe, joyful, and engaging classroom and school communities for both students and teacher." Responsive Classroom "creates optimal learning conditions for students to develop the academic, social, and emotional skills needed for success in and out of school." We look forward to brining this program to our District as well.
