No faculty circle on Monday

CSIP Surveys

If you did not complete the CSIP surveys (students and staff) last Monday, please do so this Monday. We will use this data in putting together our consolidated school improvement plan. The links are on the Tutorial page on the staff site.

Monday Adjusted Schedule

We need time to collaborate with our math and ELA teachers on Monday. Due to some half day absences, we need to shift around planning periods for Monday only.

Same times. Just swap out 7, 8 for 2, 3. Thanks, everyone. We want to make sure we support your colleagues for our CASE chats on Tuesday.

Vertical Team PLCs

Reminder to bring evidence of goal implementation to our vertical meetings. These are the goals you wrote in October:


  1. Monthly, bring and analyze student work that shows evidence of writing that matches the unit expectations. Calibrate thinking on what constitutes a 1, 2, and 3.
  2. Create a school writing plan focusing on one component of the plan each month. Begin with the school writing policy.


  1. Complete CUBES word problems 4 times per week and complete 1 written writing prompt per unit explaining how to correctly solve a math problem with appropriate vocabulary.
  2. At least weekly, use CASE question bank to administer checks to maintain rigor of priority standards/calibrate.


  1. Implementation of 3D instruction daily as evidenced in lesson plans.
  2. Collaboratively write summative assessments that measure mastery of disciplinary core ideas through the practices and cross-cutting concepts.

Social Studies

  1. Monthly, bring and analyze student work that shows evidence of inquiry practices. Calibrate thinking on what constitutes a 1, 2, and 3. (QFT, DBQ, extended response, because, but, so).
