Monday Minutes

January 22, 2018

Happy Monday! Now that we have been back to school for a few weeks, hopefully you are back into the routine!


Now that MAP testing is over, it is a perfect time to look at your RtI for Tier II students. Many of you have been entering your documentation into Edugence and many of you have been keeping track of it on paper. Please remember that all Tier II documentation must be entered in Edugence. If you have been using a different system to record your documentation, please take the time now to transfer it to Edugence. If you need help with this, please let us know. We are looking at the RtI regularly to see how students are doing.


Tuesday is our next extended planning day for grade level teachers. Woohoo! We are looking forward to seeing all that you accomplish as a team.


Finally, thank you so much for the time you are putting into your daily community circles. Did you know that we have had eight new students enroll since the beginning of the semester? Transitioning from one school to another can be very difficult for students - new teacher, new classmates, new routines and procedures, a new home, and so on. New students also impact you as a teacher and your existing students as the dynamics of your classroom can really change. One of the best things you can do is to continue your daily community circles. They are a great way for you and your class to get to know your new students and for new students to get to know you. Keep up the great work to build relationships and make our students feel safe and loved here at Bethany. If you need additional ideas or resources for community circles or for our new students, please reach out to Bryan, Wendy, or Andi.
