     Congratulations to all of our star students and staff members for an outstanding Schoolwide Seminar Day at Ross/Woodward Classical Studies Magnet School yesterday! As I was attending many seminars from classroom to classroom I was extremely impressed with how well the children were able to engage in dialogue that was on a higher level of thinking. It was very evident that the faculty had prepared them well for their seminar and have really helped our students to tune in on the their critical thinking skills. Look for thought out Post Seminar activities and projects to be on display throughout our hallways expressing this month seminar theme and core value, Lifelong Learners. We truly strive to teach and create Lifelong Learners each day here at Ross/Woodward School!
