How we move in our building. Growth Mindset.

Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed no hope at all.

-Dale Carnegie

Franey's Word.

As we progress through our school year we continue to come together as a team. I am continually reminded of how lucky our students are to have you serving them each and everyday. We must ensure that we push our students so that they may have the future they deserve. In visiting classrooms I ask students not only what they are learning about, but why they are learning it? If students know why, they will be even more connected to their work within our classrooms. Let's continue to communicate the "Why" behind the learning we expect our students to take part in.

ELA All Day!!

In visiting classrooms it is apparent that we are striving to create a space where students know what they are expected to be moving towards in their learning. Here are a couple of examples of what is happening in our classrooms around ELA, teaching points, and student work to match.

This may be happening next door to you!

Social Emotional Learning.

With our goal being to serve the whole student we have been working on building the foundations for learning, a strong culture. Here are some ways that members of our team are creating this environment where all students can thrive.

SRI Results

After our Data Dive PD using SRI scores we were able to see that our student levels vary greatly. Please continue to use the Instructional Planning, and Individual Student Reports. Through the use of this data, we can inform our teaching practices to best serve our student's needs.
