A Cordelia Hills Staff Update, 10/12/2018
Glows and Grows
Grows: As a staff, I am leaving the same reflective question as last week. I think it is worth pondering. I have added an extra question.
1. What strategies do you use when a child is displaying signs of unease or behavior in class? How do you calm yourself when a student, students, or class isn't following your directions? How are you proactive in identifying social-emotional needs as the students start the day?
Coyote Fun Run: October 17th (10:00 a.m. for grades TK-k, 11:00 a.m. for grades 4/5, and 12:30 p.m. for grades 1st-3rd)
Student will run on the field during the fun on the same basic course as last time. Please take students to the area near the bike ramp when it is your time. This year will not include color but will include other fun activities. Thanks again!
Our "Month 2" Attendance Rate ticked up slightly to 97.34% (Month 1 was 97.32%). Let's keep our eyes on the prize and encourage, recognize, and celebrate positive attendance everyday. Keep those signs up!
I am looking for holiday themed slogans for attendance. If your student/class has any great slogans to share for the Fall/Halloween time period, please shoot me an email and I will read them over the announcements!
Again, MAP data reports are now available in NWEA AND Illuminate! Check out https://teach.mapnwea.org/report/home/map and Illuminate Reports let me know if you have any questions. I'd love to tell you which report is best but I love them all. DIG IN!
Trunk or Treat, Halloween Day Parade
Halloween is Wednesday, Oct. 31st. We will hold the parade that day. This year we will do ONE lap around the blacktop, through the amphitheater, and then release you to your classroom. Two laps was entirely too long and just bogged down as classes waited. If you have any students that are unable to participate, please allow them to be in the library that morning. I can't wait to see your awesome costumes!
