Knights Watch

April 11 - 15

All In, Mt. Gallant!

How We Win:

  • Building and sustaining relationships with students, parents, and colleagues
  • Improving our core instruction in the areas of Guided Reading, Lucy Calkins' writing, and Number Talks.
  • Personalizing the MGES experience and learning for each child

Welcome back!

I hope you all had an amazing break!


The countdown to the end of the year is on, meaning that we'll be busier than ever! Michael Jerrell will be here Tuesday to meet with grade level teams. We'll be watching a video of one of your team members doing a number talk with their class. Michael will lead us in a conversation about what we see. MAP begins for K-2 on Wednesday and Dr. Pew will be in the building for classroom visits (her schedule is below). We will celebrate our volunteers Thursday with a drop-in between 5-6pm before PTA.


3 - 5 Teachers:

All iPads, bricks, and cables must be at school and remain at school beginning May 2. Please make sure your students are aware so that we can begin our end of the year process. Melisa will send more information closer to May 2.


Let's have a GREAT week. See you tomorrow!
