A Letter from Seely Place Principal Carol L. Bartlik
As we welcome Spring and enter our third trimester, I am reminded of all of the exciting learning and events yet to come this year at Seely Place School. While we continue to preserve the rich traditions and history of the school, we are committed to providing our students with innovative learning experiences. Recently, several classrooms have been outfitted with interactive flat panels and teachers are being trained to use this tool to facilitate effective engagement and interactivity with students. We are fortunate to have a PTA that not only supports cultural arts, and environmental and global awareness, but innovative learning experiences as well. Recently, they most generously helped us to update our Science Lab with new furniture, Chrome Books and an interactive flat panel. Our goal with this room is to create a space where students collaborate as design thinkers and teachers become facilitators, supporting their projects.
Seely Place continues to be an exciting learning environment. We support our students as they become global citizens and take responsibility for themselves, others and the world around them.
