Friday Review

Friday, October 19, 2018

From Mrs. Lewis...


What does your conversations with parents look like? Is the intent to build a team for the student? Consider how you start a conversation with a parent. Be sure to highlight the things the student does well, before giving a laundry list of what the student is struggling with. Our parents are our allies and can help tremendously with our work at school. Your approach with the parent will determine the relationship for the remainder of the year and beyond.



  • TEACHERS: Please make sure you have high expectations for chromebooks for testing: fully charged and brought to school.
  • Be sure that you have the correct lesson plan in your folder, so that when we scan we know what lesson plan to look at.
  • Lesson plans should have your name and the dates that the lesson plan will be used.
