Primary Points to Ponder

January 14-18

Welcome Back!

Thank you for a great first week of 2019! I am so excited about the remainder of this school year......great things are happening at Pine Tree Primary. You all make my heart happy because you use each moment of your day to impact student learning. Remember as we move into the Spring semester keep systems in place so that students have a structure and student discipline does not become an issue.


I will meet with you one-one-one during next week's RtI meetings. We will focus on TIER 1 instruction for the students in your class that scored -A or A on MOY F&P Benchmark. Think about each student and what adaptions will be made for these students in TIER 1 this semester. We will not discuss TIER 2 and TIER 3 interventions. Our focus will be on classroom instruction and individual student instructional needs.


Keep focused and remember the "Why" each of you are here!

Winter Art for Art Walk is Due January 17. Turn into Walker's office.
