Caribou Trails Update

On to the Second Quarter

Hello Crawford Family,


As you have hopefully all seen, there will be many structural changes to the day beginning on Monday, November 1. This started out as a change to provide more equity to our duty schedule, and in working with Mrs. Sutton and the Building Leadership team, with consideration for the needs of all, we worked to address other concerns, as well.


While I had hoped to provide expanded opportunities for prep time for teachers in consideration for the demands of iReady, data analysis and the impact of COVID interruptions on student progress, the reality of the day to day meant that Mrs. Sutton and I were not as available to support teachers as we needed to be. Josiah, John and Dana were tasked with keeping the gym clean, a herculean effort, and the impact on Ann and the lunch duty team was substantial. Hopefully the time in the first quarter allowed for teachers to get their feet under them with the new iReady program and we are ready to roll with it for the balance of the school year.


The new Encore schedule will begin on Monday. We were not able to give every student their first choice, however I believe we are providing a good balance of classes for students to take part in. The classes are being put into PowerSchool by Tonya, so attendance should be easier.


Thank you all for your patience and your support of one another.


Take care and Happy Halloween!
