January Growth Plan Meetings

I am not asking you to schedule a time with me yet but letting you know that in January we will sit down to discuss your progress on your personal growth plan and the action steps you have taken thus far. We will simply set down at a table close the computer and I'll just listen to you walk me through your progress so far this year.

If you need help uploading any documents to TOWER please let me know. Some of you have had items, screen shots, anecdotal records, you have already loaded but just let me know if you need help.

LEXIA Usage Goal Window of Fame

When your students reach their weekly Lexia reading goals please send them to the office with a buddy (for supervision). Students will get to sign their name to the window of the interior doors with an expo worker. (We will clean the windows weekly)
