Flipped Classrooms with Technology
Have you ever wanted to be able to see what your child is learning in class, ask the teacher for other helpful videos to study an objective, or even ask a question to the teacher during the after school hours? If the answer is yes, you will benefit from the wonderful world of the Flipped Classrooms. Here at WGA, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students are able to access online textbooks, view pre-selected instructional videos, and ask their teacher questions at any time of the day. Check out this short clip on Flipped Classrooms.

Our 2nd Annual Multi-Cultural Night
Cheri Crow and Margelis Lopez took on the challenge of making this years multicultural night even more memorable than last years. Not only did they far exceed last years excitement but they did it while recruiting teachers, parents and performers...making our 2nd annual multicultural night simply amazing! I predict that this event will continue to grow every year.
Thank you to all of the teachers, parents and performers that volunteered their time and effort to help Cheri and Margelis make this event truly memorable for our students and their families.
