Sometimes we just have to go with our feelings. That's just what the teacher did in the video link below. Hopefully the video will get you warmed up for the start of your week.

AdvancEd External Review

Sunday, March 13th 2016 at 8:30am to Wednesday, March 16th 2016 at 3:30pm

522 North McKinley Road

Flushing, MI

As you know we are in the process of preparing for our District-Wide External Review. In last week's staff meeting we went over a document called the Effective Learning Environment Observations Tool (ELEOT). The purpose of this tool is to help us identify and document observable evidence of classroom environments that are conducive to student learning. Results of the observations will be used to corroborate information obtained from interviews, artifacts and student performance data.


If you need copy of the ELEOT document, please let me know.

Teacher Evaluations

Starting this week I will begin scheduling Pre-Observation Conferences. A couple of weeks ago we agreed that October 27th would be the deadline for you to have completed your Self-Assessment and Pre-Conference questions in STAGES. You will receive an Outlook invite from me to meet. If you need more time after receiving the invite, please let me know.
