Comprehension Tool Kit

Thank you to those that attended the Tool Time Training on Comprehension Tool Kit last Thursday. Every classroom teacher should have a kit and one teacher per grade level should have the Tool Kit with the set of books. It is the expectation that teachers use these lessons during their Language Arts implementation to ensure deep knowledge of reading strategies.

Computer Lab in the Mornings

Computer labs will be available in the mornings from 7:15-7:45 for invited students. Maria and Janie will send home invites with the students they are working with this week. Please encourage and remind them to attend! If you wish to start morning tutoring, you can work with any students other than the ones that are invited to the computer lab. Maria and Janie will send an email to classroom teacher with more details!

Literacy Day~TUESDAY

We will celebrate World Literacy Day on Tuesday with an Open Mic during morning announcements, a Read-A-Thon where the class with the most minutes read will earn a free book for each student, and a graffiti wall across from the library for reflectivve writing. Reference the email Karsten sent last week. Pictures will be shared on social media!

Grandparents Day/September 11th/Patriot Day

In honor of September 11th and Patriot Day we will wear Red, White, and Blue on Friday. Please remind your students. It is also Grandparent's Day! A photo booth will be available to make memories!

Growth Mindset

You are the person that can help our students change their mindset! There are books you can read aloud and reflect upon to foster a positive culture in your classroom. Feel free to share any books with the staff!
