Happy 23rd Week of School!

Please read the district & campus news below. As always, let me know if you have any questions or would like to meet.

Monday's Learning

I really enjoyed learning and collaborating with you all on Monday. Thank you for making it such a wonderful day of learning!

Close Reading:

  • You can click here to read some important teacher behaviors to be mindful of when teaching students to read closely.
  • Click here to see some examples of close reading annotations.
  • Here is a helpful visual from Stephanie Harvey for Close Reading. It includes a graphic organizer students can use to record their thinking during each reading of the text. Please keep in mind that a student's annotations/jotted thoughts should make sense and be meaningful to THEM. The goal is to deepen each individual student's comprehension, so there is no set formula.

ELAR Professional Learning

Professional Learning - 7:20-8:20 (Admin Training Rooms)Note from the Coordinators: We will celebrate the successes teachers have had with implementing the ELAR cluster pre-assessments and the utilization of that data in developing common formative assessments. Teachers will need to bring (1) an example of how they have used the ELAR cluster pre-assessments to create CFAs and (2) a technology device. Please assist and support teachers as needed.

4th Grade: (Note from Coordinators)

We are excited about the professional learning scheduled for Friday, February 19th from 7:20-8:20 AM. Please remember to bring a technology device and an example/artifact of how you have used the ELAR cluster pre-assessments to create CFAs. We will share ideas and reflect on our learning.

*Please be prepared to answer the following question about your artifact:

  • How has this artifact allowed for targeted differentiation for students?
  • What is the evidence of student learning from your artifact?
  • How is student growth measured and celebrated with this artifact?


Please park in the back parking lot closest to the training rooms (between admin building and CTE). This will allow you to enter through the back of the admin building. The doors in the front do not open until 7:30 AM.


  • Needing an intervention for a student struggling in math? Look back in past clusters to find lessons under the "Teacher Table" and/or "Strategy Lessons" tab. The first person to send me an email that says I love math will get their choice of a drink from Sonic or Starbucks.
