What are we counting? ...Halves? thirds??

This week, we have had an expert math trainer from The Number Lab on campus helping to facilitate learning in some of our math classrooms. Our math teachers have been busy reflecting on the best strategies for helping learners become mathematicians. And, these teachers are even coming back to school on Saturday to continue their professional learning! (WHAT?! - impressive!) Check out these students leading the learning below!

School Counselor's Week

This upcoming week we celebrate National School Counselor's Week. We are thankful to have the best school counselor around, Mrs. Ray-Henderson. She is always available to help students with any needs that have. She provides support to students from a social-emotional lens to help increase academic success. Encourage your student to let Mrs. Ray-Henderson know how much he/she appreciates her!
