DW Virtual Curriculum Night

Hello DW Families~


This week we will be hosting two evenings of virtual Curriculum Night activities for our Daniel Wright families!! You will have an opportunity to virtually meet your child’s teachers and learn more about the curriculum, grading and resources in each of the subject areas.


  • Sixth-Grade Families, Wednesday, September 9, 2020
  • Seventh- and Eighth-Grade Families, Thursday, September 10, 2020
  • 5:30 p.m. to 5:55 p.m. Support Staff Available (Social Workers, Psychologists, Interventionists)
  • 6:00 p.m. to 8:10 p.m. All Content Teachers Available


Parents should access each zoom meeting in the usual order of periods in their child’s schedule. To attend to limits on Zoom meeting participants, please be sure to log into your child’s specific period and at the designated time. The period length and bell schedule for the night can be found on the Curriculum Night Schedule & Teacher/Subject Template.


Your child completed this schedule during advisory on Tuesday and was asked to email it directly to you and copy their advisory teacher. If you did not receive an email from your child, you can complete this template at home or email their advisory teacher.


DW social workers, psychologists, speech therapists and other interventionists will be available for parents to “drop in” via zoom from 5:30 p.m. to 5:55 p.m. You can find the links to each zoom meeting on the Curriculum Night Zoom Links by Staff Member.


Parents can access Zoom meetings for content teachers in two ways:

1. Click directly on the links embedded in this master list of teachers, Curriculum Night Zoom Links by Teacher OR

2. Access your child’s Google Classroom from their ipad. Each teacher has posted the curriculum night link in the Google classroom stream.


Because I am unable to meet in you person at this time, I have included a short video with general information including:

  • TeacherEase, a grade reporting software for students and parents.

  • Google Classroom.

  • Remote learning attendance expectations

  • All school Social & Emotional Learning activities

  • DW Book Bus!

  • Curriculum Night schedule overview


You can access the principal's recorded video message through our YouTube Channel.


Prior to tomorrow evening, please check for an email from your child that includes their schedule of classes. If you can not locate it, please collaboratively complete this template with your child - Curriculum Night Schedule & Teacher/Subject. Template


Our DW Book Bus will be starting Thursday, September 10, 2020! Daniel Wright students will be able to receive library books delivered to their home! Use this Google Form to request up to three books at a time. The "DW Book Bus" will provide contactless delivery of requested materials to your front door on Tuesdays and Thursdays.


If you have any questions about our new procedures and/or curriculum night access, please contact the DW Main Office at 847-295-1560.
