Shadow a Student Day

The new strategic plan, Together We are SoWashCo, focuses on personalized learning to engage, motivate and empower students of all ages. To gain a better understanding of how our students' school day looks, several teachers participated in the national “Shadow a Student Day.” Teachers are using their experience to modify teaching strategies for a more engaging learning environment in their classrooms.
