Six Waterford visual arts students were recently accepted to the Springville Museum of Art's annual High School exhibition. This is a juried exhibition and it is one of the first opportunities our young students to have their work judged by art experts who are not their teachers.
Tim Stout is in his 11th year at Waterford, and is our Chinese teacher and Foreign Language Department Chair. We learned that he recently published another popular language learning book, so we took this chance to ask him a few questions.
One of the easiest things for adults to appreciate is also one of the hardest for kids to learn: that everything is connected, that one thing leads to another, that nothing happens in isolation. A teacher’s job is to help students recognize, appreciate, and build on the connections that are everywhere around them.
This year, Waterford launched a 1:1 Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program in our Middle and Upper Schools. Teachers and students alike have found Waterford's laptop initiative enhances the learning environment in meaningful ways. Waterford's 1:1 program has equipped teachers with new tools to more effectively teach today's tech-savvy students. At a recent Parent Association meeting, English Department Chair Casey O'Malley shared her experience with technology in the classroom.
Congratulations to our Class of 2017 on their Early Decision (ED) and Early Action (EA) acceptances! Many other students have also met priority deadlines for colleges, including the University of Utah Honors College and Brigham Young University Priority deadlines, and will hear soon.
