Principal's Message

May 2019

​“Education is the kindling of a flame. Not filling of a vessel.” ~ Socrates
Spring is here; however we wouldn’t have known it with the blizzardy end to April. May is starting off with a bang as each grade group will participate in their individual, annual Exhibition. Over the past few months, the students and their teachers have been working on interdisciplinary curricular studies including the arts. Each grade group has been collaborating with an artist in residence to formulate their understandings in a variety of representations to express what they have learned. The exhibition is more than a display of student work, but rather a documentation of the students’ learning processes and products that express their understanding. At the center of the exhibition are high quality learning products, processes and performances that reflect the content and skills the students have learned. Preparing work to be shared with the public, the authentic audience, motivates students and creates a purpose for them to care about the quality of their work. The students are featured as the key communicators about their learning experience. They are front and center, articulating their learning and the connections they are making.
This year, each exhibition has a performance component that the students have been developing over several weeks to share as a part of the exhibition. Due to the performance at the beginning of the evening, it is important that all students attend as they all play a significant role in the performance. We ask that each child be at school for the 6:00 p.m. start time. Once the performance is over, then the exhibition time is an open house format where each family can tour the hallways and classrooms to view student artifacts. As with each exhibition year, this continues to be an open house format where people flow freely. This is a time to celebrate your child as a learner. It is critical for all students to be here on time as they have prepared to share their work with you. The exhibition is a time for students to reflect on and articulate what they have learned, how they learned, questions they answered, research they conducted, and areas of strength and areas for growth. They are powerful opportunities for making the students learning visible and our way to celebrate with our community members and stakeholders all the wonderful learning that takes place at Capitol Hill School. Within each of the displays, information is presented about direct curricular connections and the learning criteria for the students’ task. During the walk through our hallways, please take the time to read the documentation and to have your child speak to their learning experiences by asking questions such as, “What were you most successful at and why? What did you do well in this assignment? What is your next step as a learner? If the display is interactive, work with your child to glean how they have come to understand the content.
Sincerely,Benita DaltonPrincipal
