MTSS

Thank you for a solid week of MTSS meetings and being prepared! Our next round of meetings are tentatively scheduled for March 2-4.

New Program for ELL Students

We are so fortunate! The District purchased a program to use with our ELL students that has had lots of success at other schools. Josie and I are meeting with the rep this week. We will identify which students will be using this with her and develop a schedule. She will need to diagnostically assess students to see where in the program to begin. We will let you know when she is ready to pull students.

Time Off Requests

Don't forget to include Joy, Meghan, and Jen in your time off requests!

Counseling Services

Dear teachers,

We will be increasing the number of students that receive independent or small group counseling services. This is extremely important for our students. Please allow students to leave your classroom for these therapies, even if it is during instructional/academic time. Thank you for your understanding.

Don't Forget!

Please respond to meeting calendar invites and also put your time off in Skyward!

Thank you for all you do! Have a great week!
