Beating the Odds
Lakeview Staff Newsletter - January 11
• Foundational - Truly identifying the intended learning in every lesson will allow us to have more fruitful, future professional conversations around assessment, feedback, inquiry-based practices, etc.
• Reinvigorating - As you focus on the intended learning in every lesson, you might start re-evaluating old practices. This is both scary and exciting. You may start seeing new possibilities to build understanding; you might let go of some things that no longer address the target; you might find yourself making more time for student discussion, etc. Be brave - be relentless!

Inclement weather mornings - There must be an adult stationed at door 5, 7, and 11 all the way up until the 8:30 bell rings. From a parent's perspective, it really is confusing to arrive at an empty playground on a cold or rainy morning and not know where to go. Staff on duty may need to open doors and wave students towards the school. Students can use any of the three doors (5, 7, or 11) on these mornings, plus the front door. For example, no need to send a 5th grade student through the rain to door 5 - just let them in with their younger sibling. Parents should not come in any door except the main door.
Fire Drills - On Thursday, I was at the district office when a fire alarm was triggered. Although it was not a real fire, we realized that since drills are usually announced, it caused confusion when the fire system functioned as intended. *** Whenever a fire alarm sounds, the teacher should be the first person to exit the room, look up and down the hallway, then exit the building with your class. Continue exiting and stay out until the person in charge gives the "all clear".
