For The Common Good

  • Thanksgiving Break Reminders: Please make sure that you empty and unplug your refrigerator, computer, and mini-appliances. Please take home food that will spoil. Same with your personal belongings. Secure school equipment in locked cabinets. . The office will be CLOSED all week. If you really have to be on campus, please inform the custodians on duty that you are here. You are expected to leave campus before the end of the custodians' duty day. They need to secure the campus by making sure all doors and gates are locked. Thank you for your assistance. I am thankful for each and every one of you who work hard on behalf of students. Have a restful break with your family and friends.
  • Activities, Field Trips, and Fundraisers: ALL proposed activities, field trips, and fundraisers MUST go through Mrs. Grossman, Assistant Principal of Student Activities.

Walk-Throughs

As the administrators continue to do informal walk throughs, , we will continue to look for the following:

  • Rigorous DLT's in the correct structure in which the evidence of mastery matches the rigor of the skill being mastered.
  • Teachers doing a step back referring back to the DLT, pointing out the College Readiness Skill and reviewing the progression of the agenda which supports its mastery as the class moves forward.
  • Teachers ensuring students get the big picture of where they are headed in the learning while also understanding how the day's DLT fits into this big picture. This establishes the "why".
  • Students explaining solutions to problems, including warm-up ones, to give teachers insight into their thinking.
  • Teachers asking, and students answering, more open ended questions which allow students to expand on their thoughts and ideas.
  • Structured collaboration and conversation with assigned roles. Please refer to your "Productive Group Work" book or the handout shared with you during the pre-service days.
  • Teachers asking, and students answering, specific questions that will check for student understanding.

Congratulations to Sydney Leverett - Metro Varsity Runner of the Year!
