Frequently Used Links

Staff Shout out Link

Here is the link to add a staff shout out:

Zoom Live Lesson Form

We know you have started live lessons and we are excited to see all the amazing things you are doing. Use this hyperlink to access the document PS Live & Recorded Lessons. Log your live lesson(s) schedule. We know many of you store recorded lessons in different areas of your individual or grade level folders. Share where you store your recorded lessons. There is a tab for each HR teacher and additional tabs for ESOL, EIP, IRR, and Specialists.

The document has an “example” tab.

Example 1: If you teach the same subject the same day or days using a recurring Zoom link.

Example 2: If you teach subjects on the same day OR different day using a new Zoom link every time.

Example 3: Ms. Vogt completed her tab for this week.

The document allows administration and coaches one stop access to everyone’s lessons. We will add the link to Mac’s Memo so you may update the document as your lessons progress or as links change. Do not hesitate to ask any questions.



Assistant Principals' Corner

As we enter the final days of packing up, review your EOY checklist and make sure you complete any task that would require you to be in the building.

Student Schoology Usage Report by Homeroom

Many of you have already completed the form. Just a reminder, low usage is considered any student with 25 lessons or less in the "Total" column.

Please share feedback on why students may have little to no usage on Schoology in the comments section. Please add this information on the spreadsheet by TODAY at 5pm.

Feel free to reach out with any questions.



iReady Student Usage

We have been monitoring student usage on iReady and Lexia. Below are the graphs and reports for iReady. Please make sure your students are still reaching their 45 minutes a week for iReady usage in Reading and Math.

Summer School

Many of you have asked for the links for students to register to summer school. I am posting the English and Spanish links, as well as the teacher form if you are interested in teaching.

We will not be able to get a list of students until after the deadline in closed.

New DFACS Protocol (Reminder)

Below you will find the new DFACS protocol. Mr. Soto has created an assignment in Schoology for each person to complete. Please be sure to sign off and acknowledge you have read and received the DFACS protocol.



Student Placement meetings

In preparation for placement meetings, please be sure to have all of your student data cards complete and up-to-date. Be sure to include accurate teacher notes and information. Additionally, it would be beneficial to have an accurate F&P assessment for each student, so we are aware of their current level post school closure. It might be a good idea to begin doing F&Ps while students are completing the iReady diagnostic assessment.

Dr. Richardson shared some fantastic strategies for doing guided reading lessons and assessments on the call on Monday. If you would like to listen to the recorded lesson, please reach out to Ms. Welch.

iReady Diagnostic

Just a reminder, the iReady Diagnostic begins next week. Mr. Johnson and the coaches sent out information and steps to prepare your students for the assessment. Please be sure to post this information on your Schoology pages, as well as share information in your communication with parents.

The power points links that explain the diagnostic assessment are posted below. Please share the slides that are applicable for your grade level with parents in English and Spanish.

Thank you so much for all of your help passing out the students materials. You guys rock and were such an amazing group to work with!

I try to always remind you and show you in a more personal way, but simply put you are THE BEST. You have proven over and over to play a vital role for our staff and students. Countless times you have stepped up and stepped in...Often times without being asked and certainly never looking for recognition. From passing out lunches, student materials, and Chromebooks to furthering your education online and joining our zooms, helping not just me pack our room, but others....and you do it all with a smile. I admire and appreciate you!!! Thank you for being you!
