Walk-Thrus reflect great teaching and culture at Joseph Case High School

Happy New Year Cardinal Nation!!


Returning to Case High School rested and restored, I eagerly resumed walk-thrus and evaluations this week. So much of what I saw reflected purposeful planning, student-centered and collaborative seating, coupled with joy and hard work in these classrooms. Here are a few glimpses into a day in the life of a Case High Cardinal.

Faculty and staff will be engaged in a variety of currciulum, planning, and accreditation meetings to help the school strategically continue moving forward into the second quarter of the 21st century.

Join us for a fun Thursday evening when the Case High Dance Company presents its first "Dancing with the Teachers," on Thursday, Janaury 17 beginning at 7 p.m. in the auditorium.
