DA visit and Walkthroughs!!!

Monday is a huge day for VBE.

We will have our second DA walk through of the year. Our TRIBE is going to shine during the Walkthroughs. We can't wait to share our data and successes!!!


Be on the lookout.. the top 12 voxer participants will be receiving a special treat from admin today. Thank you so much to everyone who is participating. We are all learning so much from, "Never work harder than your students."

Let's spend a few more days on Chapter 2, as it really goes through the formative assessment process.

Summer Opportunities

Math and Science from Ragley and Keeley

Even if you are not a tested grade, you are an integral part of building the foundational skills required for student success. Our projected Percentage of Students Making their Learning Gains in grades 3-5 is 84%. Let's keep the momentum going. KEEP IT COOL!

Just a reminder, ALL students need to complete a minimum of 45 minutes of iREADY MATH each week. Last week our percentage of Active Students meeting 45+ of Instruction was 25%.

Grade Level Percentage of Students meeting 45+ min of Instruction Last Week

Kindergarten = 3%

First Grade = 20%

Second Grade = 18%

Third Grade = 39%

Fourth Grade = 38%

Fifth Grade = 24%

Let's Make a Goal Next Week to make certain our students are meeting their 45+ minutes of Instructional Usage time on iREADY.
