Cycle 3 Information

December 4 to February 2
  • PBIS Re-engagement
  • Conferring (K-2)
  • Supporting ideas with evidence using complex text (3-5)

Cycle 3 Theory of Action

If our K-2 classrooms have strong data aligned conferring during Readers Workshop then students will develop the necessary reading behaviors that allow them to read on grade level.

If our 3rd through 5th-grade students engage with grade level complex text and support their ideas with text-based evidence then they will develop the reading skills to read on grade level and master grade level standards.

Important Information

  • On Tuesday the Afterschool Program has graciously agreed to begin supervising 1st-5th grade students after lunch so that teachers can administer F&P assessments.

  • F&P assessments should be administered and entered by Friday. Please let me know if you need any support.

  • Please ensure that you are completing attendance accurately by 9 am every day.

  • For student safety, do not leave students unsupervised in your classroom. It only takes a second for something to happen.

  • For student safety, please report to yard duty on time. Students are being released when the bell rings and it is important that supervision is available at that time.

  • All requests for personal days must be submitted in writing either via email or a B Form at least 3 days advance of any days taken. Please note that personal days taken without prior approval will not be approved.
