Happy Holidays!

Please read this information carefully! There are several big changes. :)

Thank you so much for all that you do for your students every day. I am proud to be a part of our Hosp family. I hope you all have a wonderful break!


Science curriculum documents for second semester will be uploaded to forethought by Jan. 8th. Our writers will be working on updating the spring semester on Jan. 7th. If there are documents that are linked on forethought, then the lesson is good to go. If there is not a link, then it is being worked on.

For those teachers who like to plan ahead, please tell them we are sorry for the inconvenience.

Spring Math PD Update: Due to the sub shortage, we will be replacing the job-embedded spring PDs with an on-line PD for teachers. The on-line PD will be on the same dates slated for the job-embedded PD. The teachers will be able to receive the PD as a team and special program teachers/facilitators can be apart of the learning as well (SpEd, DLC, Dyslexia, GT, etc). The PD will be recorded so it can be viewed at anytime.

Please make sure you cancel the subs scheduled for the job-embedded PDs.

Also, please let me know what time you will be viewing the on-line PD. I will be there, as well. :)

The schedule for our online PDs:

  • January 14: 5th grade
  • January 21: 4th grade
  • February 11: 2nd grade
  • February 19: 3rd grade
  • February 25: 1st grade
