Thoughts for the Week

I hope you all enjoyed your three day weekend. We're halfway done with the year. Hard to believe! I continue to be impressed with the work that you've done this year. Within the last two weeks, I've seen awesome projects going on in every single classroom, and the midyear data is coming in strong. I have great hopes for the rest of the year. Please remember to let me know when your team would like to take their day of planning. Staying on course through the winter is crucial to our success in finishing the school year.

Please make sure when you are preparing your report cards you consider:

Do my students know what this report card communicates about their learning?

Does this report card reflect as best as it can what my students know, understand and can do?

Will the parents of my students know from my comments that I know their student well and care about their learning?

Have a great week!
