Four Essential Questions

  1. What do we want Students to learn?

  2. How will we know they have learned?

  3. How will we respond when they don’t learn?

  4. How will we respond when they already know?

We Learn, We Teach, We Lead Surveys

Thanks for taking the surveys. I think we had almost 100% participation!


Please make sure you are updating grades weekly so our parents have the most up-to-date picture of their student's learning. Thanks.

November Character Trait: Polite

Have a great week!
