I hope you each had a productive week. As I’m writing to you this afternoon, our temperatures continue to drop and I know we can expect a frigid overnight and Saturday. Fortunately, we should warm back up on Sunday, so this cold snap will be short-lived.
This week, we provided the School Committee with an update on the status of standards/evidence-based grading at WHS. I encourage members of our community to watch the presentation, listen to the discussion and learn more about the rationale behind this work, which is still very much in its infancy.
We also partnered with World of Wellesley this week to host a welcome meeting for our BIPOC staff and allies. Many thanks to our DEI Director, Dr. Jorge Allen, for organizing this and other efforts to support the development of a more diverse workforce in Wellesley.
Have a great weekend and stay warm!
