Cordelia Hills Staff Update
Glows and Grows
Grows: As I am making class visits, most of my reflective/grow questions are looking forward to next year and will focus on asking you about small group instruction. I look forward to hearing from you about your current practice and your thoughts on next year.
UPDATED Reminders....CAASPP Tests
Just a reminder for Grades 3-5: California reduced segment one of ELA performance task (PT) to 1-2 questions. They didn't, however, approve language to reduce the recommended time allotment until recently.
They have NOW approved language to send to districts. The language states that the ELA PT can be done in one day. Please take note that we have given permission to remove Day 2 of the ELA PT. Please work in collaborative this week to remove that day from the testing schedule. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Family Reading Night
Thank you to Kristine Jackson, Mr. Linnet, Ms. Baker and the rest of our volunteers for organizing and hosting the Cordelia Hills Family Reading Night! The reviews raved about the event this year. We appreciate your hard work =)
