Promoting Growth at Wilkes School Preschool Program

0

The philosophy at Wilkes School Preschool Program is to promote the social emotional growth of the children, preparing them for future educational endeavors, while still tuning in to their individual strengths and needs. The curriculum is based on the developmental milestones for 2-, 3-, and 4- year olds and aligns with the Maryland state standards. The school is able to adjust the program to fit the needs of each child while still maintaining the integrity of the program.

A typical day for the preschool is a balance of teacher-led and independent activities. Educators teach Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies, as well as, all of the specialty areas. Children experience hands-on activities, with an emphasis of literature and language. The activities are based on the developmental needs of the children and can and do fluctuate between groups of children to ensure everyone is finding success.

Anne Gardiner Perkins: Yale Needs Women
In partnership with the Pratt Library’s Writers LIVE Series, The Church of the Redeemer hosts Anne Perkins discussing her new book, Yale Needs Women. The news was so shocking that the New York Times ran it on the front page. Yale, which had banned women undergraduates for the previous 268 years, was finally going coed. Yale Needs Women tells for the first time the true story of the young women students who broke the gender barrier at Yale in September 1969. They came from all over the country: Chicago, Atlanta, Los Angeles, Baltimore, Boston, the Bronx.

Defining the Well-Rounded Student at St. James Academy

0

Chris Greenawalt, MD, never knows what each shift at Greater Baltimore Medical Center (GBMC) will bring. As director of GBMC’s hospitalist program, he helps acutely ill patients navigate inpatient and outpatient care. He and the 30-plus physicians under his leadership use their medical expertise every day, but the qualities Greenawalt says he relies upon most weren’t taught in medical school.

“My integrity and accountability were set in motion at St. James Academy,” says Greenawalt, who attended the Episcopal, coed day school in Monkton, Md. when it was Kindergarten through 6th Grade. “The things I learned from way back are what I’ve carried forward.”

Today, St. James Academy is Prekindergarten through 8th Grade but still intentionally small. “St. James was a nurturing environment where teachers put an individual focus on my strengths,” adds Greenawalt, who graduated from McDonogh School and Wake Forest University for both undergraduate and medical school. “The school helped me to develop attributes I’ve used all the way through to being a leader at GBMC.”
