DON'T COUNT THE DAYS; MAKE THE DAYS COUNT
Three Terrific Mondays!
In these next few weeks let's commit to a strong finish. Our third, fourth, and fifth grade students will be involved this week with STAAR. Various grade levels are participating in district assessments.
Let's commit to planning highly engaging and interactive lessons for students.
Make sure you are taking grades (daily and major) in all content areas. Parents are actively monitoring online gradebooks.
Make sure you are re-teaching failing grades and documenting re-teaching.
Make sure you are communicating with parents about student's academic progress, especially if students are in danger of failing for the school year...no surprises for parents.
Plan ahead and pace yourself as the ending of a school year is often one of the busiest times.
Stay positive and optimistic! You are an important part of Ridgegate!
