We have achieved amazing things!

It is hard to believe that this is our last newsletter of the year. In just 5 short weeks, we will bring the 2015-2016 school year to an end! As I said the very first week of the year, your dedication, love for each other and our students, and your heart for your work is inspiring! Ashley and I are blessed to serve beside you and we are so proud of your accomplishments this school year. We pray this summer is filled with sun, fun, rest, relaxation, and many memories!

Continuum of Literacy Learning Days - May 24th and 25th

On May 24th and 25th, all grade level teachers will be involved in a half-day professional development session focusing on the Continuum of Literacy Resource. This resource will provide the foundation for our curriculum work this summer and will assist in the work we do on campus next year with our Comprehension Toolkits. Each grade level will be involved in a half-day professional development session (see schedule below). If you are changing grade levels next year, you will attend with the grade level you will be teaching in the fall. Denise is working to set up subs to help us on these days. Our tentative location is the Training Center but I will let you know if that changes.
