- Use of Teacher Excellence Initiative to emphasize the use of an effective Demonstration of Learning to measure student understanding of concepts.
- Use of bell to bell instruction to increase instructional efficiency by minute to minute planning of classroom instruction.

Academy of Engineering & Robotics
On November 7th, the Conrad RoboChargers competed in the BEST Robotics competition Paydirt. Their challenge was to build a robot from a closed kit of basic materials that could navigate the “mine” and retrieve minerals for points. The details of the team’s progress are on their blog page. Despite it being their first year competing in BEST, the team had the 5th strongest score of over 25 teams, and they won an award for the Most Robust robot. What’s next for the RoboChargers? They will be hosting a FIRST Lego League tournament at Conrad on December 5th, and preparing for the FIRST Robotics Competition season that kicks off on January 9th. Interested in joining the team? Swing by 1-404 on Tuesdays or Thursdays after school and say hello!
