Our vision is to be a Healthy and Literate Community!
And now for something BEAUTIFUL!
Welcome Back and some Important Dates
I hope you all got some much needed rest and are ready for the last few months. When we get to spring break I am always surprised that the year has flown by so quickly and here we are at the need of the year.
I will publish the end of year events and check out list soon. We can't create next falls classes yet as I do not have the teacher allocation. That should be coming shortly. Also, the budget is still in development so we have a few unknowns right now.
We are working on the Cowell ask and I will provide an update soon. Anu Cairo will be visiting on April 2 and May 10. She will be here for Hareem's time with us and then for the Leadership Team.
March 27th - the LCAP Committee will be here to walk through classrooms. It will be very similar to the principal walk through. I will do a short presentation to ground our work for the team and then we will be in classrooms from 9am to 10am. I would like to highlight readers and writers and our small group work again! You all knocked it out of the park for the principals. Baseball season lingo!
Thank you all gain for your endless dedication and hard work!!
much love and appreciation, Maite
Lucy Calkins and her Team
I wanted to share with you one of the many reasons I am an advocate for readers and writers workshop and the professional development Lucy Calkins and her team offer.
Attached is a statement recently published by Lucy and her colleagues regarding their work.
For me it is not just about the level of rigor, quality of instruction and development of independent thinkers and learners... it is also about equity, social justice and racism.
