Classroom Spotlight

This week’s classroom spotlight is Mr. King's Band class. Students set up class outside and performed during the student lunch. Those watching got to enjoy an excellent concert performance. Way to go Gators!! You will not want to miss their upcoming Veteran's Day Performance Wednesday evening.


Advancement Via Individual Determination, or AVID, is a proven learning support structure, known as WICOR , that incorporates teaching/learning methodologies in the critical areas of Writing to Learn, Inquiry, Collaboration, Organization, and Reading to Learn. WICOR provides a learning model that educators can use to guide students in comprehending concepts and articulating ideas at increasingly complex levels.

Marsh’s teachers have been trained in the WICOR principles and incorporate their proven strategies into their lessons. This week's WICOR spotlight is Mr. Hague's Social Studies class. Mr. Hague had students use critical reading and writing strategies by having students complete vocabulary KIM charts which highlighted keywords, important information and a memory clue. Excellent job Mr. Hague, you are a WICOR Rock Star!!

SEL word of the week- Fear

Fear is uncomfortable but its meant to keep us safe from danger. Fear is also useful when it tells us to ask for help from people we trust. Fear also helps us act bravely and demonstrate courage. We see courage when people do what's right even though they are afraid. Encouragement can help us be brave. This week were going to look for friends and family members who are trying to be brave. We're going to give them support and encouragement and help them do what right. And, if we feel fear, we're going to ask the people we trust for help.

Be courageous. Go be Great!
