Gotta know it...

Every where I go I talk about the incredible team at Weller. Every time I walk into a classroom I can feel the engagement in learning. This morning I was in Rebecca's room. Both her and Amanda were at a table's side by side teaching small groups math at their level. The other kids were on Dreambox, working independently, and helping one another. This was engagement! Thanks for what you do every day at Weller. I'm CRAZY 4 U and you're MY HERO.

A few things...

  • Encourage parents to sign kids up for EXPLORE! Encourage kids to sign-up for EXPLORE! We can earn up to a $4000 incentive for having 65% or more of our kids enrolled in EXPLORE! (They must attend at least five days.) The way I see this is it's field trip money! That could be $235 per classroom for a field trip of their choice!
  • Can you believe the book chain already? Thanks for encouraging your kids to read and supporting them in filling out the tickets.
  • Five of our 3rd grade students read the lunch menu for the morning and 5:30 news on KOLR 10 next week. Be sure to watch Monday through Friday to see our budding Weller stars!
  • Behaviors have been challenging this week. Thanks for keeping our Weller Expectations high and reviewing them with kids.
  • Remember to put the reading test kits in the order you would like to find them in.

Friday Feedback question and response:

  • If you could live this week again, what one thing would you look forward to?

  • Loved the excitement at the assembly from the Read Around the School
  • Enjoyed learning how to use my new device for reading groups
