Channel View School Research Staff Holds Winter Retreat
Teachers and administrators of Channel View School for Research (CVSR) joined together on a weekend in February for their second annual winter retreat at the YMCA’s Camp Greenkill, in Huguenot, New York. Curriculum planning and professional goal setting in the Environmental Education and Activity Center was paired with challenging outdoor adventure activities during the day, followed by evening opportunities for team-building and socializing around the fireplace in the Maple Lodge. Approximately twenty Channel View employees participated in the retreat, including Principal Pat Tubridy and Assistant Principal Joe Featherston.
Channel View School for Research opened in September 2004 with more than 400 students in grades 6 through 9, and added a tenth grade in September 2005. Located in a separate wing at Beach Channel High School, Channel View will add a grade each year until it includes all grades from 6 through 12. Channel View follows the academically rigorous curriculum sequence of Core Knowledge, while engaging students in hands-on, collaborative, project-based interdisciplinary learning in the field and in the classroom, using an interactive teaching model. This project-based learning is built on Channel View’s strong connections with the principles of the Expeditionary Learning Outward Bound Program.
