Why do we need Essential Skills Training?

Let's start off the school year on the same page! Michelle Martin will help us go through the process of assessing the Essential Skills and we can calibrate our process as Professionals.

  • Do I assess this the same as my Team?
  • Am I too easy in my assessment?
  • Am I too strict in my assessment?

Let's get together and spend one hour setting the stage for a great start!

Purposeful Planning Schedule for September 22 in Conference Room!

AM: McKimmey, Horn, Delapena, Gonzalez-Karras, Vela, Beas, Bowmar, Steward, Escobedo, Reeder, Shepherd Keys

PM: Yi, Murillo, Li, Ali, Orozco, Chavira, Huckaby, Robles, Altamirano, Mercado

When I have a sick student, can I as the Classroom Teacher call the parent to come and get the child?

Good question! The answer is: NO! Please send the child to the Nurse and let Ms. Nichol's decide if the student should be sent home. The classroom teacher can contact the parent to let them know their child is seeing the Nurse, but it should be Ms. Nichol's decision on whether or not the child should be sent home.
