When Sheridan School (4400 36th Street NW) flipped the switch from in-person to distance learning on March 17th, teachers and students weren’t sure what to expect. The teachers had never pictured themselves teaching students from afar and students were accustomed to challenging, active, hands-on learning.
Whatever worries they had were quickly dispelled as everyone in the community responded with resilience. Within days, classes were in full swing with students reading, writing, collaborating, experimenting, creating, and even exercising online with their teachers and their classmates.
“We are incredibly grateful to our teachers for their ability to keep our students deeply engaged in their learning and connected to one another amidst the pandemic,” said Margie Gottfried, Sheridan’s director of admissions and financial aid.
Sheridan is inviting families of prospective students to an online information session on Monday, May 18th at 8 p.m. The school will explain more about its mission and program, and its plans for the next school year.
“Whether you are a family exploring schools for this fall or looking ahead to the 2021-2022 school year, we look forward to sharing our approach with you,” said Gottfried. “We are committed to delivering a top-notch education in 2020-2021, no matter what the new school year brings.”
