To the Point
Prairie Point Staff Newsletter
Volume 3, Issue #10: Friday, February 2, 2018
There are many things that make Prairie Point awesome, unique and a family - one of them is the diversity that our DHH program brings to our school. We have had housed the DHH program for K - 5 for many years. This year we were lucky to bring the EC DHH program back to PT and to provide support and services to students starting at 3 years old. If you have a spare minute (or 15) take the time to watch Christine Sun Kim - she is really inspirational!
Trauma Informed Schools
AVID - Advancement Via Individual Determination
While it is important to remember that AVID is so much more than a binder...organization is a key piece of AVID and one of the tenets of WICOR. I think that it is important to begin those conversations early this year so that we have time to plan and prepare for what the organizational tool will look like at each grade level. We have dedicated time during our Wednesday Faculty meeting to discuss organization.
Links to all of the grant information and applications can be found in the January 10, 2018 Faculty Meeting Agenda.
February 7th Faculty Meeting
We will spend some time discussion AVID Organization and provide planning time with your grade level teams to talk about what this might look like at each grade level.
We will also dive deeper into ACEs and build upon what we introduced last month.
