CST Visits - Oct 29, Nov 11
Our CST team loves coming to WPS! They were very complimentary AGAIN! During the walkthroughs we continue to see the growth in our Success Criteria implementation. The statements are specific and kid friendly. We should continue to work on verbally introducing the lesson and closing the lesson with them. We also discussed that we have room to grow in listing the steps necessary to successfully complete an objective.
A question raised: How often during whole group lessons are the teachers utilizing frequent talk?
You People Need a Break Survey Results coming soon!
Feedback from PLC Visit
Kettisha Jones, Asst. Superintendent for Elementary Schools and Siegel's supervisor, came to observe the Berrios Team during a PLC meeting. They were great role models for our campus! Thank you to Specials Teachers, Intervention staff, and several others for being so flexible with the schedule on this day. Ms. Jones thought the team did a great job with discussing small groups, interventions, and supporting their "new teacher" team mate.
The Ship Bell in the main hallway is a way to celebrate our accomplishments at WPS. We will be getting dowel rods for each classroom/teacher very soon. The sticks will be used to ring the bell. Staff will be able to decorate their sticks as a class. A student can be sent with a partner, or you can take your class to ring the bell. Please preteach some bell ringing expectations. Some examples of reasons to ring the bell are:
- Good work/exceptional work
- Reaching a personal goal
- Problem solving with friends independently
