Coaching Update

November 30 - December 4

Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.

William Butler Yeats

Coaching Focus

Coaching sessions this week are focused around reviewing your 2nd quarter portfolios, which we will need for our site PLC this Friday.

Interested in a poster?

During orientation the growth mindset was introduced, and we have periodically revisited that. To support the extension of the growth mindset into your classroom we would like to know if you are interested in either of these pictures as a poster for your classroom? Please email with your preference.

Coming up...

  • Staff meeting and site PLC Friday, December 4th @ 1:30
  • DIBELS & CBM testing starting tomorrow for K-2
  • Galileo testing: Reading, Dec. 9 & 10 and math, Dec. 14 & 15
  • All chrome books will be collected December 7th for Galileo testing

Student Goal Setting

You may have noticed a student goal setting sheet in your mailbox. One side is math and one side is ELA. I thought maybe you could try this out with your class before the next Galileo and give me some feedback on the template. I would be happy to come to your classroom and support this!

Don't forget to get your lesson plans in for this week. We have hit 100% submitted, lets keep it up!

360 Degree Classroom

I recently had the opportunity to visit Maya High School. They are piloting a 360 degree classroom. Every wall is painted with a white board! So groups, pairs, individuals go to any wall to demonstrate their learning, take notes, problem solve, write, etc... How cool would this be?
