For many, what makes Cotswold so special is the IB program. The emphasis placed on the IB/character traits leave a long lasting impression on our students to take with them beyond their years at Cotswold. The IB /Character Education Committee is a great way for parents to be involved in the classroom and to get to know our students by teaching and reemphasizing these important traits.
Our goal is to have two parents per classroom alternate facilitating a monthly 45min-1hour long IB/character lesson. Provided there are two volunteers, this totals 4 lessons per person during the school year. Even if there is not a need in your child’s classroom, please consider volunteering in another room that needs the support. It’s a great way to meet the students and get to know another teacher.
There will be two trainings offered for new volunteers to attend on
- Wednesday, September 24TH 9:30-10:15AM in Ms. McWhirter’s 5TH grade cottage
- Monday, September 29TH 5:30-6:15 pm in the Media Center
All classroom lessons are to begin in October. Emily Kennedy and Karen Kerr, the committee co-chairs, will be available throughout the year to provide any support you may need and or to help you with lesson ideas.
Please email Emily Kennedy firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to volunteer for this committee.
