A Cordelia Hills Staff Update, 10/21/2018
Glows and Grows
Grows: As a staff, as most of you wrap up the writing assessment, a few questions:
1. If a complete stranger was to interview you and ask you, "what does writing instruction look like for your students?", would you be able to respond with an answer that is clear and that reflects a process steeped in high quality writing routines and regular practice?
Trunk or Treat
Thank you to Dina and Travis and all of the volunteers for making this a premier CHE event for our families.
1. Please complete and enter RQCs for report cards. See the latest email from Cindy Brown for more information.
2. Our resource center is now using intervention materials that are from Benchmark and are aligned to the work you are doing in your class. It is SUPER helpful to be on pace and together so that the work they are doing to support all of our students isn't confusing for students.
3. Make sure we are positively reinforcing TIER ONE safe behavior expectations. I encourage you to be creative with our students. If you find students are struggling in this area and they aren't responding to typical recess academy consequences, let me know and we can team together to find other solutions.
Halloween Day Parade
Halloween is Wednesday, Oct. 31st. We will hold the parade that day. This year we will do ONE lap around the blacktop, through the amphitheater, and then release you to your classroom. Two laps was entirely too long and just bogged down as classes waited. If you have any students that are unable to participate, please allow them to be in the library that morning. I can't wait to see your awesome costumes!
