Cordelia Hills Staff Update
Glows and Grows
Grows: Next year, every school in elementary education is going to have a solid focus on implementing small group instruction and academic dialogue. I know it seems as if this has been a focus for so long but the data across all schools (and our school) reflects a very choppy implementation. Our goal is to provide regular PD, support, and planning time to make sure we are making progress in both of these areas.
Welcome New Staff!
Also, I know our new tech support, Eric Berkheimer, has introduced himself via email and face to face to many but I wanted to just extend a welcome to him. I appreciate all that the tech support staff does in our District and I look forward to seeing Eric work with us. Based on his email, you probably know what he looks like now so please don't hesitate to reach out and wave hello.
Student Morning Welcome
Also, please be sure to notify parents of your grade level testing schedule so they are aware. If you have any questions or NEED ANY ASSISTANCE, don't hesitate to reach out for help.
Reminder, SHORTER CAASPP Tests
They have NOW approved language to send to districts. The language states that the ELA PT can be done in one day. Please take note that we have given permission to remove Day 2 of the ELA PT. Please work in collaborative this week to remove that day from the testing schedule. Please let me know if you have any questions.
