Points of Pride

Instructional Focus....

I really have to commend all of our teams for the growth that was shown on our ELA ATI assessments!!! You all have been so reflective, and open to new ideas.

The 3rd-6th grade teams were very reflective in their own practices during a Wendy Peterson training on Friday. We have a curriculum that can help us push rigor and better prepare us for ReadyGen and AzMERIT.

Kindergarten was encouraged and excited to implement the new ideas presented by Crystal Udall on Wednesday.

We have A LOT of training going on during a short amount of time. There's a possibility that you will feel overwhelmed in the coming days, but it's important to breathe. These all day trainings are like "getting a drink from a fire hydrant." There is a lot to take in! As a team, reflect and decide one thing a week to try and keep each other accountable. Don't be afraid to fail in the beginning, it's expected when you try something for the first time. Pick each other up, reflect and try again.

Thanks for all your continued hard work!
