Tavia's Thoughts

Thank you for all of your positive energy and focus during our Data Analysis Day. I appreciate the teamwork by all to own our students. When I think about our discussion and reflection on the day I found myself picking up a book I have pulled from before Saving Our Students, Saving Our Schools: 50 Proven Strategies for Helping Underachieving Students and Improving Schools. In the chapter "Confront the Challenges", authors, Robert Barr and William Parrett touched on several conclusions, a few I want to highlight for the team (nothing we don't know, but some things we ALL need to remember) , all children can learn, good teachers make a difference, best practices work for at risk kids, and lastly low performing schools can become high performing schools. It's time to establish priorities that really focus on student learning. We've got work to do to educate every child!! Team PSE...watch us work,

Emily’s Enthusiastic Information

When I read this, it reminded me of our work with Growth Mindset last Monday! During this past week, I was able to observe some of that growth mindset in a 5th grade classroom! I hope as you look forward to this week, you find ways to implement growth mindset in your classrooms! Have an amazing week!

Maggie’s Moments

What Outstanding Work!!! That was my reaction as I watched and listened to your work on Tuesday with Calkins writing. Your professional conversation about instruction with your team and with our presenters showed me that you are dedicated to the literacy of your students. Thank you! This upcoming Tuesday, Oct. 13, your team will begin to become familiar with Calkins Units of Reading. I am excited as we will grow and learn together as this year progresses.

Hymer's Hype

“When students know you care about them, they find the power within to learn and become successful adults. When parents understand you truly care about their children, they become your partners. When colleagues care for each other, they gain the strength to face their challenges together.” I challenge you this week to take time out to send a post-card home to a student, make positive parent phone calls, and make a deposit into the emotional bank account of a colleague. WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!

Jackies' Friendly FRC Facts

This week we will have our Latino Night on Thursday from 5:30 – 7:30pm. Please encourage your students to show their parents the yellow flyer that was sent home. Also, let them know that it is really important for parents to attend! We want to stress the importance of parental involvement with homework, school information, healthcare, and extracurricular activities. There will be a translator and a couple of bilingual presenters for the event. If there are any teachers that want to share information with our Latino families, please let me know or just feel free to join us on Thursday night. Thank you for your support in reaching all of our families!
