VTS Schedule for the rest of the year

Gretchen will come for her final visit of the year on 6/10 and we will have a debriefing during PD. All 10 VTS lessons should be complete by this visit and the end of year writing assessment should be complete. Please bring these assessments to the PD on 6/10. Brooke will share details during an upcoming grade level meeting. This is a whole group writing assessment that will not take much time to administer.
