Those Who Excel Merit Award Winner - 2015
WE LOVE YOU!!!
You're Rocking It!!!
Each of you are doing an amazingly awesome job. I am hugely impressed with the way our professional learning community has grown and evolved over the past 2 years. We adopted our new mission statement last year, and it's reflective of who we are and what we do. Now's a good time to review our mission and celebrate all we've done for kids, for each other, and for our school.
Prairie Point students, teachers, and parents are a community of learners where:
Student learning is our highest priority.
The intellectual, social, and emotional development of all learners is supported.
Ongoing collaboration is focused on student growth and achievement.
SIP Day Follow-Up
I hope you found value in the data conversation from our SIP day on Friday. Maureen, Jen, and Heidi are all available to attend your PLC meeting on Wednesdays to support further data conversations. We'd love to join you!
I wanted to share the preparation work Kindergarten has done for their PBA. I've included for you the PBA Task and the Module goals, so you can review.
Please take a moment to think:
How do Module 1A goals for kindergarten reflect the goals and objectives at your grade level in Module 1A? How is what I see a stepping stone to what my students will know and do?
The kindergarteners did GREAT work preparing for this first assessment. They are utilizing strong vocabulary and really talking and thinking about what they are learning.
We are going to be piloting a new paperwork system called Success Plan, so if you bring a student to TEAM, we'll demonstrate that process for you. It's done through eschool.
In the meantime, if you need to bring a student up to TEAM, please complete the same paperwork we've had in the past. You can find that at our building TEAM website. Link is below. If you're unsure about how to bring a student up for support, or have other questions about the problem-solving process, please don't hesitate to visit a member of TEAM.
