SBAC Begins!

Best of luck to our 7th and 8th graders who will knock their tests out of the park the week! Please be sure to share your words of encouragement as these weeks progress.

Student Feedback Surveys

Don't forget to have your students take the feedback survey by next week. The website has been uploaded on our webpage for easy access for the kiddos! Thank you!

Parent Appreciation/Open House

Your rooms will be available and student-free by 4:00 to finish up any last minute touches. Please remember that this is a very special opportunity to show-case the wonderful things going on in your class each day. As a refresher, here are some ideas discussed at the meeting about how to conduct your Open House walkthroughs -- if you do not have a classroom, please post up with a partner to help out.

  • Student-led

  • Displayed current student work

  • Welcoming classroom environment


Suggestions (May-Dos)

  • Checklist/Passport to help students guide parents through classrooms/activities

  • Blended Learning Style (display of computers with online programs)

Instructional Focus:

How are our students with special needs doing (those with IEPs, SSTs, etc.)? Are we making sure to follow along with the plans set forth to help these students be successful in class? We will be holding retention conversations very soon so it's important that we have done absolutely everything we can to help them succeed before committing to retention.
