January 11th - January 15th, 2016

Achieving Our Dreams through Education

CONSCIOUS DISCIPLINE

We started off 2016 with a couple of dynamic presenters who presented on Conscious Discipline. I found it very encouraging and challenging. Encouraging because I felt we are on the right path as a school and challenging because it is not the first time we have heard about the brain and how we can better interact with students. Lets continue to be purposeful in our growth.


I have included some video's related to our training on Friday. Please take a look as they are very good. I have also put an article in this week's bulletin that was in last weeks also because I think it is important. Please read it and reflect on how it and our Conscious Discipline training relate to each other.

BENCHMARKING

This week is a Benchmarking week for iStation. We assess monthly in literacy, but Fall, WInter, and Spring assessments are what we label benchmarking times as these are the times we use to compare our growth to previous school years. Please be with your class to monitor students as they take the iStation Assessment.

TEACH TO'S

January's Teach to is "Dismissing Students After School." Have you read it? If you have you may noticed it depends heavily upon staff implementation. Please take a look.


Remember to catch students doing something positive and give them a chance to win in the weekly drawing. Keep an eye out for the pre-school as they have been practicing a lot.

Horizontal Walkthoughs

Thanks to all of you who were able to get into each others classrooms for a walkthrough. It is always good to see what others are doing. The old proverb says that iron sharpens iron. If you haven't gotten your done please do so.

RECESS DUTY

We are not allowing footballs during recess, as it usually turns into tackle football. If students bring a football to school please keep them in the classroom.
