Thursday's Faculty Meeting

We will have district presenters working with us on our 3 highest needs of student comprehension skills on Thursday. The skills that we will be working on can and should be applied to all academic areas. Please bring the following with you to the meeting...

1) Several completed student DRA tests (each from a different level) - If you do not teach Reading, please bring a couple student DRA tests for students that you do teach. Each person should have 2 - 3 student DRA tests to use.

2) The Continuum of Literacy Learning Book

3) Prompting Guide

Learning Celebrations

Learning Celebrations are this coming a week from Friday. Please help advertise and promote this to parents. In addition, please encourage parents to pre-register by sharing this link with them. It has been sent out to parents in the weekly Cypress Happenings, but we might reach more parents if you include it in your correspondence to them as well. They can pre-register at the following link:


By pre-registering, they will already have a visitor badge printed and waiting for them when they arrive. This will get them to the event more efficiently and keep them from having to wait in long lines at the front office.
