Vertical Team Learning at Alton Darby

Students working together in media center

Alton Darby is doing vertical teams this year; this is when you have multiple grade levels on the same team. Each team is doing something different with their students. The students from multiple grade levels are given opportunities to work together and teach each other. It has been a great opportunity for staff and students. They are able to have conversations about strengths and areas of growth for our students.

The Dream Green Team is comprised of Mrs. Kleman’s third grade, Mrs. Bolyard’s fourth grade and Mrs. Williams’ fifth grade. Their focus is on taking care of their minds, bodies and the world. They have started with recycling and taking care of our environment.

Personalizing education so that each student can grow at their own pace helps prepare them to be Ready for Tomorrow.
