Ways to Nurture Empathy in Children

What have your students done or seen that would stretch — or shrink — his or her empathy growth?

"Under The Surface" - Empathy Film

Snap Chat

When you get a chance, please watch this video above and check out the article I provided. Everyone is going through something. As we sprint towards the end of the year and interact with students, parent, and each other, there will be many opportunities to provide empathy. Do not let these opportunities go away.


Now on another note, I shared some of my pains of learning Snapchat. We my own mom is now "snapping" (yes, I know it's not a term, but I like it). The photo you see is one I received from Emma during church. Enjoy.


Now for another great week.

Lexia and Dreambox Data

If you have not logged on to your Lexia or Dreambox data recently, I would strongly recommend you do and use that data to focus the needs of our students. I will be sending you emails on your usage this week and will talk individually with you as well. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Assessment Update

Wondering if we are taking iReady EOY? The answer is YES...For 2015/2016 the i-Ready EOY is not optional and the testing window runs from March 21-May 17.


MAP Window open April 11th

I think you will enjoy this video. Watching this video just reinforced how important our jobs are and the incredible influence we have. As we start this week, watch this video and let it soak in...you may never know who your "Stephen Colbert" is...
