Myers Moment

Week of May 9th

Teaching and Learning for the End of the Year

We still have two and half weeks of teaching and learning left in the 2015-16 school year. I look forward to seeing the engaging instruction that will continue through the last day of school, May 25th. Acceleration Meetings have provided you with meaningful conversation and content that will support instruction throughout the month of May. Mighty Minds will continue through Wednesday, May 18th. The Assistant Principals and I will be conducting walkthroughs through the last day of school to provide support.

Reminders about the playground

Please make sure that teachers spread out on the playground and are monitoring all areas. Students should not be in the back corner of the playground by the garden without adult supervision. It is essential that students are monitored at all times.
