PD Opportunity for February 19th

February 19th has been designated as a county-wide Professional Development day for certified staff at ACHS. Staff will be dismissed from ACHS at 12:00. Specific details about the entire day will be forthcoming.

The focus of our PD day will be Literacy. When the PD Planning Committee met yesterday, we discussed how "Literacy" is a broad topic and as both educators and individuals, we are able to make more narrow connections to specific kinds of literacy. Pasted below is a copy of our brainstorming list of kinds of literacy we may not typically consider.

Financial Literacy

Literacy in the content areas

Data Literacy

Cultural Literacy

Digital Literacy

Information Literacy

Media Literacy

Mathematical Literacy

Global Literacy

Civic Literacy

Social Media Literacy

We are calling upon your expertise! Each elementary school has been asked to have a minimum of four proposals. Please think about a connection you make with literacy and feel confident about sharing with others. I see you all doing wonderful things on a daily basis and am certain others could learn from you!

Get these in my January 29th! If you think you might be interested but want to pair up--let me know and maybe I can help. I think it would be great for an entire grade level to collaborate to present! Please copy and paste this link in a new tab. Also, please email me to let us know the title of your proposal and the presenters' names. Thank you in advance for your consideration.


Easy CBM/Reading 3D Additions and Changes

I sent out the list of CBM and Reading 3D changes that I know have NOT been made. PLEASE take a look at this and add any students you need added or changed by Friday at 4pm. I will submit it at this time.


If you are mentoring a student (See List)--please do not forget to check in on them and put a note on the board. During all this testing would be a great time to leave a positive sticky note or stop by and give an extra hug to your "mentee."

Thanks again for taking part in building our students up and creating strong relationships with them.
