Math Coaching? Support and Feedback?

Be on the lookout for an email and schedule in the next week or so for some math coaching! Debbie Johnson will spend time with individual teachers providing modeling and feedback and support and whatever else you may desire. We are putting together a schedule and I will send it out you as soon as it's finalized. We hope that she will spend time with every mathematics teacher during the first half of the semester. Details to come...

2016 Writing Summit: Save the Date!

The 2016 RMS Writing Summit will take place during the first week of February. Language Arts teachers will spend Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday planning times during that week to think about how we teach writing and to ensure we're meeting the needs of our students. We'll have guests from the Language Arts office as well as our own in-house experts lead our learning.
