Events for the Week

  1. Monday, 6/1--JM Literacy PK-K Teachers (Rice, Shiflet, Tobias, Covarrubias, Esparza) will be here all week to work with teachers PK-5 on Room Environment and Independent Reading. Please meet in Mr. Gentry's Office at 7:30 AM each morning with your laptop. They will share documents on Google Drive. The expectation is all returning teachers need to attend with the grade level they will teach with. This will allow all teachers to learn about things coming up for next year pertaining to IR, especially since AR will not be utilized. They are very sweet. I think you will LOVE them! I am buying pizza and cookies for each grade level's training day so no need to pack a lunch on your grade level's day!
