We have identified Thursday, September 12 as a possible suitable date for a second attempt at Senior Commissioning. Once again we will use period 9, with students heading to Waxlax at 2:04 and hoping to begin the ceremony by 2:10. Seniors would proceed immediately to the stairs outside Oglethorpe for a group photo afterward, with all of the above wrapping up by 3:00.
This event is open to the entire community. Mike Lupica will be joined by Carl Hiaasen to talk about his newest book for MS readers, entitled Strike Zone. This event is free and open to the public and books will be available for purchase in advance or at the event.
Dr. Yeap Ban Har is one of the world’s leading experts in professional development for teachers using the Singapore approach to teaching mathematics. The Singapore Method is a highly effective teaching approach grounded in research. It was originally developed by Singapore’s Ministry of Education. Singapore consistently ranks at the top in international math testing.
Dr. Yeap explains the key competencies that are necessary to be successful in mathematics and how we can develop them in the mathematics classroom.
Although it may look different, Dr. Yeap will explain why this method is important and effective in developing twenty-first century problem solvers as the future and innovation are built around being flexible in one’s thinking.
