Bush Weekly News

October 10 - 14

Message from Mrs. Engle

Thank you for another great week at Bush School! It was very busy, but I think we'll make it through the full moon! Our Active Shooter Training went very well on Monday and it was great to have another hands on review. Grade level work went very smoothly and I'm always impressed on the positive conversations and collaboration that seems to take place across all of the grade levels. As we work through Standards Based Grading, it's going to be hard and frustrating at times. But remember, we always end up on top and proud of what is accomplished! Hang in there!!!!

Notes from Holly

1.) The Minor Tracking Form is back up and running. Thank you Josh Howard! Also, I am playing catch-up a little bit from with the minors being out of commission for a bit so bear with me.

2.) Our next PBS video will be filmed next week. It is to go along with the bathroom setting lessons in the PBS folder on drive. Please make sure you are teaching those lessons with your class. We are trying to hit them in the order that we are seeing the most issues with. Also, I will be putting some extra lessons or ideas to help supplement the PBS lessons that you can use if you are seeing a need for some extra work in those areas.

3.) I have been enjoying reading with the classes this month. If you have not signed up it is not to late. Let me know if you need me to re-share the sign-up sheet with you.

4.) Please continue to let me know how I can support you.
