Classroom Newsletters: Our Pedagogy In Action

Newsletters are the inside story of the learning journey over the week in our classrooms. It's a unique learning tool for our parents as they gain real insight into their child's daily learning and start understanding the pedagogies that create deep-level learning and understanding in the classroom.
The weekly newsletter is a coveted communication from the classroom that will arrive in your inbox weekly. Below are a few real examples of newsletters from each of our class segments, from the two-year-old preschool classroom to the Intermediate 5th-grade classroom. Discover here the detailed explanation of learning that showcases progressive education throughout our school and the level of instruction from two lead teachers in each classroom. We pride ourselves in searching for and recruiting the best teachers who believe in and have the stamina and devotion to teach in progressive pedology. Here you will see a level of respect, cooperation, and unique deep learning not found in other programs. Welcome to Virginia Chance School.
