Week at a Glance 2-1-16 to 2-5-16 NATIONAL SCHOOL COUNSELING WEEK

ZIS Vision: One Child, Two Languages - Unlimited Possibilities

ZIS Mission: We will provide and assist each student with a well-rounded and differentiated education that is centered around the immersion of the Spanish language and cultures to prepare them for a global society.

Instructional Focus: The SIOP Model in ALL classrooms. Please, por favor, PLEASE review, use, and reflect upon the components of SIOP and continue conversations within your grade level meetings during your common planning times. I believe in the use of this model and want to implement it with fidelity as we grow our eagles into bilingual and biliterate citizens.

    · 2 grades per week for Reading

    · 2 grades per week for Math

    · 1 grade per week for Social Studies

    · 1 grade per week for Science.

    · 4 grades per quarter for Specials subjects

    · Grades from library projects will be infused into the grade book of the subject it is covering as needed.

    Have a GREAT WEEK! You are the best of the best, and I am blessed to be with such great professionals like YOU! This is the best school in the nation!

Teacher of the Week

El Orgullo de Zarrow

Drum roll please.....................................................................................................This week's Teacher of the Week is Srta. Butler!!! You get the Principal's parking spot for the week :-)!!!!

I definitely wanted to take a moment to write a little bit about the many things that this wonder educator does for ZIS and its family. Srta. Butler has been at Zarrow for a while now and continues to share her heart so much each and every day. Since the beginning of the school year I have only experienced her sense of kindness that becomes infectious. She is always filled with gratitude and respect as she promotes the many characteristics of the month in our assemblies, as well as within her counseling sessions, support groups, etc. I appreciate her dedication to our school and to our students. I, also, am very blessed to have her take on such responsibilities and compliance issues like our Tripod Student Surveys, 504s, OU Climate Surveys, etc. Srta. Butler has also been doing great things with our mentoring partners in the 5th grade as she continues to help children and foster leadership within the student body.

Srta. Butler, there have many times that you have not only helped students, but also teachers, including new principals ;-) You laugh is infectious and your positivity and joy remind me that everything is going to be ok regardless of any situation. I hope that you know always that your presence at ZIS and in this world helps make life wonderful! Congratulations for all of your accomplishments in life, and may this week be a great week of people reminding you how wonderful you are! HAPPY National School Counseling Week!
