Thank you for your flexibility with the two 2-hour delay days!!! It went well

KUDOS to Ebony Williams for Math Game Night! Parents really enjoyed it and learned a lot!

Special Thanks to everyone who came Thursday evening for the Math Game Night:) How many found out that they were not "Smarter than a Fifth Grader??

Shout out to the School Culture and College Readiness Committee for the new pledge and for teachers using it to remind students of our expectations!!!

Thank you Fifth Grade for breakfast, it was a great way to end the week!!!

If you are a Panther, I think you have reached the end of the road this year...better luck next year!

Now That You Have Your Data...

Focal Question: How do we maximize student achievement through effective collaboration?

Data Questions to consider:

· What criteria would you use in determining if the instructional goals should be revisited? What evidence is there that progress is being made toward the instructional goals of the school?

· What subgroups are of most significant concern at this point in the year? How do you know? Are there surprises? Challenges? How is this concern being addressed?

· What trends do you notice in discipline? How can this be addressed?

· What criteria would you use in determining if LEP goals are being met and services implemented? How can goals be revised and implemented if needed?
