GRE Staff Newsletter

For the Week of December 16, 2018

Dear Team,

Thank you to everyone who participated in Data Teams this past week. It was wonderful talking through each student and seeing the progress made. I appreciate your open mindedness and willingness to tweak, change or rethink Interventions and Tier I support to best meet the needs of our students. We have one more Data Team Meeting to go but hands down, I continue to be impressed with GRE's process for monitoring student growth.


Hopefully, you have almost completed Grade Cards and are plugging away at meaningful comments and well thought out markings. Just a reminder that all grades must be entered by 8:00am on Tuesday morning. We will run reports from the office, one class at a time and then place in your mailbox with your envelopes. Please, please make sure you check your spelling and make this document a professional reflection of students progress. As we've spot checked a few, many comments and misspellings are present in the comments section so be sure to to double check this.


This will be the last update until the new year! I hope that you take time to celebrate the holidays and make memories, while leaving school work behind. I have loved every second of getting to know each of you and becoming part of your GRE family.

With love and admiration-

Kate
