The School Nutrition Employee Week theme this year is super heroes as well! We have a dedicated staff and want to thank Pam, Renee, Ann, Paula and Sherry for their hard work preparing breakfast and lunch each day. They go above and beyond to provide important nutrition to our students. They even dress up from time to time to celebrate! A huge thank you to Child Nutrition team at Glendale.

Share Your Input: Digital Resource Survey

National Geographic and Math Expressions are just two examples of curriculum with an online component. Please complete this short survey to support how Digital Resources are supported in our district. The survey also asks about other tools that teachers use or are interested in using.

If you could fill out this survey:, which should take about 10 minutes, it would really be appreciated.

MAP Testing Begins for Grades 2-5

Students in grades 2-5 will be taking the NWEA MAP during the month of May. 5th grade students are taking the MCA in Science this week. Classes will be testing at different times of the day throughout each week. Please refer to your schedule from Julie Lund so you are aware of the testing times. The MAP allows student progress or growth from fall to spring to be measured. MAP scores are just one of many ways we understand the learning needs of students and can plan to help them achieve at high levels.

Summer School

We have been collecting several student registration forms for summer school lately. We are still accepting registrations and if you have students who are interested, please encourage them to turn in their forms soon. Staffing and funding are determined by student enrollment. There are additional forms in the office if needed.

Placement Cards and Directions Available Soon

The Placement Cards for 2016-17 will be available in teacher's mailboxes today or tomorrow. Leadership reps are setting meetings for next year's class placement. If you have any questions, please let me know.

Lit Lab is Tuesday at 8:10 in Room 104

The final installment of Lit Lab with Patti Greene is scheduled for Tuesday. All teachers who teach reading will receive the final session. We will meet in the ESTEM/Synergy room. Thank you! We have added a staff meeting for May 10th that will be designated for planning for next steps with creating Future Ready learning opportunities in teams.
