School Improvement Planning Through Rising Star

Looking for School Improvement Team Members for the 2016-2017 School Year

-We would like to have representation from all areas of the building. More information to come on this.

Rising Star Indicators our building is working on:

Educator Quality: ID13 Instructional teams meet for blocks of time sufficient to develop and refine units of instruction and review student learning data.

Teaching and Learning: IIB04 Teachers differentiate instruction based on assessment results to provide support for some students and enhance learning opportunities for others.

Learning Environment: CL8 The school culture supports teachers in practicing effective and responsive instruction to meet individual student needs.

Differentiate WTW

An easy way to differentiate for word study/work work is to use the Words Their Way assessment, then group students according to their stage. I found this WTW grouping planner on the following website:

If you are looking for a way to differentiate using the sorts, this teacher site has some great ideas and, as always, Jenni is ready support you if you want to try this out. The WTW grouping planner will be housed in the Husmann Central Folder under Literacy Resources.

Greetings from Frontline Technologies! In January, we started rolling out a new look for Aesop’s navigation menu bar, and next week (May 16-20) your district will also transition over to the new Aesop navigation.

Aesop will continue to work the same as before, only now, the main menu options will be along the left side of the screen instead of across the top. For a sneak-peek at the new navigation framework, you can check out the release notes here.

We're thrilled to have a consistent navigation experience for both district and school-level personnel moving forward, and we hope you enjoy the look and feel of the Aesop menu bar on the left side of the screen!

Field Trip and Lunches

Good morning ladies.

I just wanted to remind you that we have the ability to make sack lunches, including a drink. We know we have students that eat lunch in the cafe, every day, for a reason. I thought I'd put that offer out there, should the need arise. A few of the schools in the district have several students order sack lunch for their field trips (mostly free/reduced students, but occasionally others). If you have students forget their sack lunch, or would just like to order one in advance, I'll be happy to have them ready before you need to board your buses. I hope all your field trips are fabulous!!

Boy, that clock ticks quickly this time of year, huh?!

End of Year Printing

Our district printer has asked to have printing requests for the start up of 2016-2017 sent over before you depart for summer break.

This will assure printing request

completion during summer, delivery into buildings and ready for staff returning back in August.

Thank you for your assistance in helping Carl to keep the printing production running smoothly.

End of the Year Checklist

Cathy is going to a meeting on May 18th to get an update as to what should and should not be included in student cum folders. If something conflicts with our end of the year checklist we will make the needed adjustments.

You can also find this document in the Husmann Central Folder under End of the Year folder.
