P.O.P. Power of Positive

Love that our staff rocked the Pirate Day fun! We are making school so exciting that the students (and staff) don't want to miss even a single day!

Our "Teach Like a Pirate" Book Study kicked off with a great discussion and sharing of strategies. We are looking forward to digging in and collaborating to make great decisions for student learning! We still have room for anyone who wants to join!

Thanks to our teams for stepping up when we have been short on subs. I appreciate Ashley and Tammy B. for helping split a 5th grade class last week! It takes a team to make LIFE happen at school!

PLCs have been efficient and productive be creating and discussing specific, skill-based, data decisions for designing lessons and interventions for ALL students. We are holding rigor high for students and scaffolding their learning. Deployed Skill Group Interventions start next week.

Congrats to Leanna Alsup for being selected as the new Director of MOT!

Let's rock this week!!
