"We are data informed but vision driven!" 2/12/2018

Do you want to observe another teacher?


There are hearts in the main office and in the teachers lounge. Please fill them out to celebrate other team members to remind them how much they are loved and appreciated. We will have the heart box in the main office all of February. Let's see if we can fill up the wall! When February is over, we will make sure that the hearts make it to their recipients!

This is our second week of drop everything and write! Please remember that for 15 minutes during breakfast ALL students in ALL contents should be writing. We are providing you with prompts, but you are free to use your own. The purpose is to get students comfortable getting their ideas on paper and in a routine of sharing their written work. Please make time for some share-outs!

We would love feedback on how this is going and how we can make it better!
