You cannot let your students out EARLY
It may be tempting to offer more minutes at recess for a reward, but please refrain.
This also applies to end of school dismissal. Wait until the bell rings before letting your students out of the classroom. There is no one to supervise students in the gym (where there is class still happening) nor at the parent pick up, leaving kids unattended in the parking lot. THANK YOU for understanding this safety issue.
2016-2017 Requests for Additional Adult Assistance are due to the Special Education Office no later than 5/6/16.

Teachers will apply crosscutting ideas of analogies, patterns, scale and proportion, systems and models, and structure and function throughout science, math, and literacy. The focus will be on embedding the use of a jeweler's loupe and questioning strategies into STEM content areas, as well as scientific and mathematical practices to enhance students' ability to: 1) develop motivational bridges between content areas; 2) make investigation into content areas simpler, but sophisticated and scholarly; 3) develop students who naturally write-across-the-curriculum with high-level results.
