On September 12th, Mr. Toto and Mr. Obletz held initial team meetings with each of the Silas Wood teams.  They discussed the Silas Wood expectations, student responsibilities, and the many resources that are available to help the students begin their transition into the upper grades and have a successful school year at the sixth grade center.

Each of the groups offered unique discussions and asked many different questions.  Mr. Toto and Mr. Obletz enjoyed using some very talented ad-lib actors to model common student scenarios such as walking in the halls, asking to use the bathroom, and interacting with fellow classmates.  The students were eager to participate in this interactive information session.

The end of the session was tailored towards addressing interest-based questions the students had as they moved to designated areas of the gymnasium based on topics they wanted to discuss.  The students maintained interest and enthusiasm throughout each session.

Team Toto and Obletz was impressed by the eagerness of the students to participate as well as their cooperation during each informational discussion.
