20 instructional days to make an impact on student learning!


Staff Pledge:

"We recognize that the fundamental purpose of our school and the reason we come to work each day is to ensure all students learn at high levels. We Understand that helping all students learn requires a collective, collaborative effort rather than a series of isolated efforts. We will work in teams to inform and improve individual and collective practices and to better meet the needs of individual students through intervention and extension."


"Kids don't learn from people they think do not like them" ~ Dr. Tim Hanson

Our PLC Journey...

The PLC process is a never-ending process in which educators commit to working together to ensure higher levels of learning for every student.

We will achieve this outcome by learning together about the best practices proven to increase student learning, applying what we have learned, and using evidence of student learning to make decisions and revisions in practice to help even more students learn at higher levels.

Four Critical Questions

  1. What do we want our students to know and be able to do?
  2. How will we know when they have learned it?
  3. What will we do when they haven't learned it?
  4. What will we do to extend the learning when they already know it?

When we meet in our collaborative teams, we will focus on these four critical questions.
