Need to Knows!

This week starts Benchmark 2 testing for Grades 3-6. The upstairs and distance learning lab will be used during this time, so please make sure that we are transitioning around the building at a voice level 0 to allow for an optimal testing environment. Please see the attached schedule for testing. Below is a Google Sheets link for the Benchmark Makeup list.

PLC's this week will continue our focus on data. K-2, we will focus on TRC and next steps in progress monitoring to meet student needs in a user-friendly manner. 3-6, we will focus on what the corrective instruction week will look like upon our return from Thanksgiving break...and how we will use Benchmark 2 data to determine these next instructional steps.

The staff meeting this Wednesday will focus on our School Improvement Plan (SIP) and best practices around discipline. We will share the SIP plan for staff approval as well as share district information around CPI techniques for addressing student behavioral issues.

The PBIS team met this week and discussed the reinforcement schedule for students and staff. This coming week, we will be surveying students for the types of things they would like to earn....and the same will happen for YOU! Please look for a survey link this Monday to let us know what you would like to earn as a result of your hard work. STAY TUNED!!
