Webster Students Perform at New Rochelle High School! As an essential part of the Repertory Theater program, the fourth grade put on "Peacemaker and the Tree of Great Peace" this week at the Linda E. Kelly Theater. Students participated in a residency with artist Patrick Wadden, cofounder of Arm of the Sea theater company. Children played music, created art work, learned puppetry skills and theatrical staging. The play represents Webster's unique approach to using the arts to enrich learning in social studies, ELA, and other primary content areas. Great job, students!


Second grade students recreated a Colonial School Day as a culmination to a unit on Colonial Times.


At Webster School, parents visiting during American Education Week were able to visit classrooms for academic presentations and they were also able to see the Studio Arts Program in progress.  Our artists include sculptors, painters, dancers, weavers, architects and songwriters.  Both students and parents had a great time.



First graders at Webster use the Huguenot Children's Library on a regular basis.  

Mrs. Barnes First Grade Class

Dear Parents,
      You often hear me say that our mission is: We Educate the Whole Child .  This statement encompasses our goals which are to support each child in his/her academic, social, emotional and artistic growth.  This year, we will continue focusing on aligning curriculum to Common Core Learning Standards and  we will support children in developing their critical thinking skills as we prepare them for the future.  Our school wide initiative is to foster independence through a gradual release of responsibility.  What does that mean?  Children are supported in becoming independent thinkers, readers, writers and mathematical problem solvers as their teachers model for them, as they work with their teachers, and as their teachers monitor them as they work independently.  In reading and writing, a Workshop Model will be implemented in each classroom.  The workshop model begins with a short mini-lesson followed by a period of time for children to read or write.  When children are reading or writing, teachers conference with individual students or with small groups of students, targeting instruction in order to support students in strengthening their literacy skills.  All children are required to read independently each evening.  Talk with your children about the books they are reading.  Research shows that sustained independent reading along with literate conversations about books are two of the key factors in children becoming proficient readers.  In mathematics, please encourage your child to talk about their mathematical thinking.  Discuss various ways to solve problems.  Our expectation is for children to use Dreambox Learning on a daily basis at home. enVisions Mathematics can be used to reinforce and support learning that is taking place in the classroom.
    Studio Arts will begin on Monday, November 2nd for kindergarten, on Thursday, November 5th for grades 1-3 and on Friday, November 6th for grades 4-5.  Studio Arts provides students with the opportunity to think and express themselves in creative ways, tapping into each childs special and unique talents.  
    I look forward to each and every Webster student having a positive, productive and academically challenging school year.  If you have any questions or concerns, you can reach me by email at mpassarelli@nredlearn.org .  It is through our collaborative efforts that we insure success for all Webster children.

On Tuesday, November 3rd, students in 3rd - 5th grades embarked on virtual reality field trips using Google Cardboard as part of Google Expeditions pioneer program. They journeyed to the Great Barrier Reef, US Monuments, Little Bighorn Battlefield, the Amazon and the Moon. It was an amazing journey for all.
