Every August, at the start of the school year, our students are assigned to a homeroom (with the emphasis on home). In homeroom, our students connect as a community with their classroom teacher and teaching assistant. But they are also given the opportunity to learn and grow with students from other classrooms.
In Early Years, this is achieved through 'Open Doors'. This is a time each week when all of the classroom doors in Pre-K and Kindergarten open, allowing students to learn from and with each other in new and engaging spaces, while also encouraging collaboration.
'Open Doors' strengthens the learning experience as students develop new friendships with peers and relationships with adults.
Learning at ASW is a collaborative, community event!
