WES Students Learning New Lessons

WES Giving Lessons in the Classroom and on the Court

Academics and opportunities for social and emotional learning are all important at Winston Elementary.

Winston recently hosted its second annual tennis camp after school at the park adjacent to the school campus. Students spent the week learning the basics of the game and getting to know other Wildcats they might not encounter day-to-day at school. Winston teachers Angela Wilder and Shelia Brown coordinated the camp.

Administrators and staff at Winston believe that after-school clubs and camps provide opportunities to grow as a family and community while teaching new skills and cultivating new athletic talents.

"Working hard, taking risks and sharpening skills are important keys in developing lifelong learners at Winston," said Principal Chelsie Goodman. "We support this endeavor so much that it extends beyond the school day."

Opportunities for learning abound during the regular school day at Winston. Mrs. Wilder, Program Challenge teacher, works diligently with all teachers to ensure academic enrichment and rigor.

Kindergarten students recently got a head start on some of the science standards they will encounter throughout their years at Winston.

While observing and making predictions about precipitation, the students created their own models and spent time reading and discussing the results with friends.

Principal Goodman knows that accelerating students new to elementary school and providing opportunities for them to interact and think critically as soon as they enter the building creates a solid foundation for years to come.

"The kindergarten teachers, along with all of our Wildcat staff, continue to push all students to be the best versions of themselves."
