Instructional Coach Weekly Update

Week of May 23-27

Last week of Intervention and PM!

  • Per Jon's weekly communication - all students will stay in interventions this week and be progress monitored through this week (regardless of their spring FAST score). All interventions and progress monitoring will end/be over the upcoming weekend. We want to keep routines in place for these students as long as possible. Getting an extra week or two in of intervention will not hurt.
  • LAST DAY FOR INTERVENTIONS WILL BE THIS THURSDAY!

Turning in Walpole Kits


  • Friday morning there's a staff meeting from 7:45-8:15. Everyone who has a Walpole kit needs to bring the materials/box and we will be going through the procedure of making sure each kit is complete before turning them in for the summer:
  1. All kits need to be returned in their original boxes (with the bar code)
  2. All kits need to be returned in the correct order (listed below)
  3. If you've added things to your kit (posters, I can statements, etc.) we will make sure you get your kit back next year. All additional materials can stay with your kit as long as the required materials are all there too.
  4. Order of kits:


  • 1.Using Letter Sounds (one expandable file with 6 color word card sets, 6 white cards w/ sounding and blending boxes, and brown folder with directions and assessment)

Additional Reminders:

  • Many teachers had to share a kit with another teacher, make sure to get all kit pieces back from other teachers BEFORE Friday- this will keep Friday's meeting as short as possible.
  • If at all possible do NOT put the binders inside the expandable files - the files are breaking. Just put the binder immediately behind the matching expandable file.
  • If you are missing rings and/or sheet protectors on any of your materials please come and get new ones from me BEFORE Friday.
  • If you know you are missing materials start a list and bring it with your kit on Friday.
  • Have all word card sets and phrase card sets turned back to "Day 1" (you could have a responsible student help with this)
