This morning was very busy in the kindergarten wing! Mrs. Berry’s class spent the week analyzing lyrics to a song so today they had a special guest performer (Mrs. Berry’s daughter) come in so they could hear the song! And Mrs. Breon’s class learned about protesting, so today they got to stand up for what they believe in. 💪 🎶 #LearningIsFun

Building a Positive Community

Grant Ragan embraces the Responsive Classroom approach to teaching. Responsive Classroom is a set of practices intended to create safe, joyful, and engaging classroom and school communities. The emphasis is on helping students develop their academic, social, and emotional skills in a learning environment that is developmentally responsive to their strengths and needs.  All staff operate from the core belief that in order to be successful in and out of school, students need to learn a set of social and emotional competencies – cooperation, assertiveness, responsibility, empathy, and self-control – and a set of academic competencies – academic mindset, perseverance, learning strategies, and academic behaviors.
