A Glimpse into Mathematics Classrooms Across the District

Implementation Week 26

I don't know if I have told all of you enough how GREAT you all are. What you do every day for the students of Exeter is nothing short of amazing. I am still in awe of how well everyone is adopting the new math programs.

As we begin to anticipate what math will look like next year, please keep track of lessons/activities that are working/not-working so that we can be thoughtful about our planning for next year. Please share this information in your PLC meetings so that the math leadership team members can bring this information to the group when we meet.

Also, start thinking about what materials you might need prepped for next year that we might be able to help you with over the summer. We will be offering community service hours to high school students to help prep materials for you over the summer. You can share this information at your PLC meetings as well for your math leadership team member to bring to the group.

Thanks, and keep up the great work!
