First Full Week of School!

As students are getting back into the framework of the school day, I am observing really amazing things:


  • happy smiles as they check out a book
  • forehead wrinkles as they experiment on quarters
  • collaboration conversations as they play math games
  • focused group work on Google Slides
  • calm movement through the hallways
  • encouraging reminders on behavior expectations
  • social acceptance at recess and lunch


Let's keep up the momentum as we dive into September!

Evaluations and Professional Learning Plans

Part of being a certified staff member in our building is through setting goals and being reflective on your practice. At our staff meeting, I will be showing you the documents needed to complete this aspect of our profession. Below is a short video on how to write a SMART goal. This will be essential in the professional learning plan for the year. I will also quickly talk over the cyclical evaluation calendar that we will use the next 3 years and continue to adapt as the year progresses.
