School Improvement Planning Through Rising Star
Looking for School Improvement Team Members for the 2016-2017 School Year
-We would like to have representation from all areas of the building. More information to come on this.
Rising Star Indicators our building is working on:
Educator Quality: ID13 Instructional teams meet for blocks of time sufficient to develop and refine units of instruction and review student learning data.
Teaching and Learning: IIB04 Teachers differentiate instruction based on assessment results to provide support for some students and enhance learning opportunities for others.
Learning Environment: CL8 The school culture supports teachers in practicing effective and responsive instruction to meet individual student needs.
RTI check in - final entry into synergy for the year, folders updated by May 27
Report cards/Lit Wall data entry
Lit Wall reflection: Look at growth from Fall-Spring, reflect on what worked to contribute towards growth
2nd grade: May 25 1:25-2:05
An easy way to differentiate for word study/work work is to use the Words Their Way assessment, then group students according to their stage. I found this WTW grouping planner on the following website:
If you are looking for a way to differentiate using the sorts, this teacher site has some great ideas and, as always, Jenni is ready support you if you want to try this out. The WTW grouping planner will be housed in the Husmann Central Folder under Literacy Resources.

My Kindergarten teammates rock!
Jill, Kim and Barb stepped up to the plate when I was unexpectedly out for 2 weeks.
They prepared sub plans, passed along extension activities, checked in with my subs (and me) to make sure that everything ran smoothly.
I did not worry that my students were well taken care of while I was away.
I am very lucky to work with such a thoughtful group of teachers!
Luis Perez usually works behind the scenes and we are all blessed to know such a wonderful, friendly, hard-working, family man. Thanks for all you do for the Husmann family Mr. Perez. This school would not be the same without your service and smile.
Tina Serra rocks for organizing a "sweet" literacy event for our primary students! Thank you!
Karen Belke - she is a wonderful coworker and an even more amazing friend - I am blessed to know her. Also, thank you for letting me use your room so often to get my work done - it helps tremendously!
