Common Planning & Professional Development Day

On Monday, February 22nd from 1-3, we are going to wrap-up our book club discussions on the impact of poverty on learning and male learning styles.

  • Lunch will be provided from 12:15-1 for any staff member who comes into work for the ALICE training. We will again be ordering through Berres Brothers (see menu linked below this). Please send your orders to Carol by Friday.

Common Planning This Week

To prepare for our work on Monday, this week's common planning is going to be looking fall-winter MAP growth specifically for our subgroups: males, low SES, and SPED. Also, please spend some time glancing through your book for notable areas you highlighted or jotted comments about. This will allow us to go into Monday's PD time with this understanding and be able to use our time most productively.

Upcoming conferences

Make sure to let me know if you'd like me to attend any of the spring conferences.

I'm still on a search for club advisors. I've sent a flyer out to Marantha College in Watertown for potential advisors (see below). If you know anyone, please send them my way. We still have 60 hours available for additional clubs. Clubs can be during your lunch, before school or after school.
