Making our Hive Thrive
K- A teacher was using collaborative grouping to give students an opportunity to talk about ways they are alike and different. She used a big book read aloud to engage students in conversation. She also provided visual literacy for students. Great Job!
1st- A teacher used small group math instruction to target students that were not proficient in certain skills as well as those that needed acceleration.
A teacher is using Imagine Learning to help provide additional literacy support.
2nd- Teachers were incorporating technology as well as Kagan strategies to help students create products that reflect their understanding.

Bike to School
Bike to School day is Wednesday, May 6. Students cannot participate without a registration form.
P is for Pirate
Pirates are daring, adventurous, and willing to sail into uncharted waters with no guarantee of success. They reject the status quo, embrace the unconventional, and steadfastly refuse to conform. They are risk-takers, rebels, and mavericks willing to travel to the ends of the earth for their educational treasure.
Proudly hoist the #tlap Jolly Roger and join a crew that's transforming education one classroom at a time.
--Dave Burgess, P is for Pirate
