eClass C&I Course Pages

We are showing wonderful growth in teacher use of eClass C&I course pages. The district is tracking this usage. As a reminder, please remember the minutes of activity is the time between the log-in and the final click during a single session. If a user logs in and never clicks on another link and never logs-out, 0 minutes will be captured. Remember to LOG-OUT every time. Some teachers are showing 2 log-ins but 0 minutes.

PTA Flyers and Information

Please make sure you are sending home all PTA information in Friday folders and returning it to PTA on time. All students need to have these forms sent home in a timely manner in order to meet deadlines. Thank you for your help with this!

Please remember if you are a special ed or teacher of grades 1, 2 or 5 and have not attended a CogAT meeting plan on doing so on Monday morning. If you are unable to attend that please come see me with your calendar so we can find another day/time.

CogAT starts Wednesday. Please be ready for the emails to be coming your way with important reminders.

The next round of interims are coming up very soon. You are now within the window to access the blue prints as well as the tests in the resources section of SchoolNet. The rubrics for the constructed response questions are also located in the instructional resources section. I will be visiting grade levels next week to give further guidance on these new formats as well as scheduling testing for this go around.


A HUGE shout out to the gals helping with sorting out EIP. It truly is a LONG and often confusing process trying to serve as many students as we can following the strict guidelines set forth by the state. They have created,changed, updated and tweaked their schedules dozens of times to make sure we are helping as many kids as we possible can.

Please remember that EIP services can come in many forms, through push in, pull out and even para support in kindergarten. Letters for EIP students will be going home in the upcoming days, if any parents have questions please send them to me and I will be happy to work with them.
