SEL Word of the Week-Trust and Self Awareness

This week we are going to think about how a feeling of trust also helps us feel happy and relaxed. When we can trust out classmates and friends to help us build a positive learning space, then we can feel happy and relaxed while we learn together. When out teacher can trust us to do our best work and focus on what were learning, then they can feel happy and relaxed as they teach our class. Trust is an important part of our school community. Positive learning spaces are built on trust.

Classroom Spotlight

This week’s classroom spotlight is The PE Department and their amazing dance unit. Students showed off their line dancing and disco skills this week and had a blast dancing their day away. Way to go Gators!!


Advancement Via Individual Determination, or AVID, is a proven learning support structure, known as WICOR , that incorporates teaching/learning methodologies in the critical areas of Writing to Learn, Inquiry, Collaboration, Organization, and Reading to Learn. WICOR provides a learning model that educators can use to guide students in comprehending concepts and articulating ideas at increasingly complex levels.

Marsh’s teachers have been trained in the WICOR principles and incorporate their proven strategies into their lessons. This week's WICOR spotlight is Mr. Gunther's IRI class. Mr. Gunther has taught students to use WICOR organizational skills by having them fill out and set weekly plans and SMART goals for themselves around their grades and assignments. Every Friday students return to their goals from Monday and review their progress. This then helps them determine their future goals for the next week. Way to go Mr. Gunther, you are a WICOR Rock Star!!
