Thank you PTA the GHOULISH GALA #PHENOMENAL!!! It was sooooo exciting to see Gomper's come alive with families suchhhhhh a fun-filled night. Gomper's PTA is second to none...Thank You! I know many hours of preparation and organization were dedicated to this event. Your time and efforts are truly appreciated.
Ms. Lucio, Mr. Hulbert, Ms. Evans, Ms.Donnelly, Ms. Lourenco, Ms. Connie, Ms. Asenas, Ms. Cunningham to name a few, manned the pizza station all night, helped sell tickets, took pictures and worked the crowds....Thank you for supporting our school community!
Let us give a triple-double, biggggg round of applause to Ms. Fuenes and the Haunted MAZE!!!! Soooooo many countless hours of "engineering" work and hearing screaming children all night!!
Ohhhhhh Yeahhhh............. #GATORNATION is on the move
Noticings in classrooms this past week.....
Montes - supporting students with strategy use to decipher unknown words while reading
Gougen - effectively using small group opportunity time/centers from 1:1 assessment, partner pair sight word recognition, CORE5 and beginning and medial sound recognition in CVC
Estrada - supplementing "informational" reading opportunities with Article for the Day, students identifying facts and new vocabulary
Please note, as I visit classrooms this week, I will continue to look for instructional activities that match the daily learning target posted and its match to a grade-level standard/rigor --- What grade level standard is being addressed during the lesson? Secondly, it is also important that students know how they will reach the given target/success criteria. Lastly, I strongly urge you to appropriately close your daily learning/period or time block section with a recap of the learning intention, therefore, cementing the learning.
Instructional Pathways...Enhancing Rigor through DOK
November 18-21. It will be a full day of release, schedule forthcoming.

Long Beach schools are going green. Teachers, support staff, administrators and parents who would like to assist with recycling and other sustainability efforts are invited to the Green Summit at Hughes Middle School from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Nov. 16. The school is at 3846 California Ave., Long Beach.
School district, city and local non-profit representatives will provide information on campus sustainability. Learn about the latest recycling changes and how to get started at your school with sorting and recovering food, cans, bottles, paper and more. The aim is for each school to have a green site coordinator.
A stipend rate is available for teachers/staff attending the summit (register in myPD for either the classified employee or certificated employee section of Course 9160).
