Ridgeview Rundown

Week of January 26th, 2015


This Week's News

MAP: Stay tuned...we are still awaiting concrete information from DESE. As soon as we know what the upcoming test will look like and details for administering it, we will let you know.

Class Pictures Class pictures will take place on Wednesday in main lobby. See the link below for the schedule. Kathy will send out of list of new students that need to have their picture taken at 9:30 on Wednesday. Please make sure you arrive on time so we can stay on schedule.


SST Meetings We are continuing to explore ways that we can make the majority of our time together in SST meetings focused on specific interventions and problem solving tools. We have created a new form for you to fill that will hopefully help our SST team have specific information before the meeting. Look for details on this new process to come your way from Jessica soon.

Learning Cadre Work

Tech Cadre Update: Members of the Technology cadre will be joining 21C/Best Practices and Whole Child. Our technology is so integrated in what we do and we have evolved so quickly with our technology use at Ridgeview that it made sense to combine these cadres. You will see extra members at your next meetings.

Change in Date for 21st Century/Instructional Best Practices: Due to conferences next month, we will not have cadre on February 12th and have moved it to Febraury 19th.
