The Word-of-the-Day program is the backbone, but not the totality, of a rigorous vocabulary program. Each week, in addition to a challenging list of vocabulary words, students in grades 1-12 focus on five WOD's. During the week students are expected to become thoroughly familiar with the definitions of these words and, in grades 5-12, the etymologies of each of the words to prepare for the vocabulary-WOD test that occurs at every grade level.
