Friday Focus

JSE Staff January 16, 2015

"Love Your People"

Thank you Chris, Barb, and Kathy for the fabulous breakfast, wish I could take credit but I can't!

The writing committee did an excellent job sharing ideas and jump starting conversations across grade levels. In the future we will plan to share writing samples.

Please check the Google calendar! We have several meetings, teachers out of the building on Tuesday, and a drill on Friday. I will be most of the day Thursday.

I have left the resources below from last week if you didn't have the opportunity to view them. I have also added a link to MasteryConnect. Check it out. This is a potential resource for us and I want to make sure we are aware it is out there. I have signed up for the free account and have been contacted to host an upcoming interactive webinar for our staff. If you would like to attend please do, it is scheduled for Feb. 12th.

Have a great weekend!



Mike has put the file of his resources on the Data (X) drive, title Stephens Share.
