Thank You!


Thank you for ensuring that all of your students conferenced with someone about their progress! I was so excited to hear such positive feedback from parents and from you! I look forward to this being the new standard for our Jets!


Faculty Meeting


Tomorrow we will meet in our Program Review committees. Please ensure you are prepared to contribute to your program review.

Year of the Kid

Could Kid President’s challenge be an entry event for a PBL at our school?

Kid President is BACK with BIG NEWS!

Recess

Please make sure to monitor the students while at recess. Each teacher should be stationed around the playground in order to maximize supervision and safety.

MAP Testing

Please email Kat if you have not already, about how you would like to MAP test your students. If you are using Chrome books in the classroom then you can basically test when you prefer and during multiple sessions.
