What's Going On...

  • We will have visitors on campus Tuesday for Dual Language Instructional Rounds.
  • Friday the School Board will be holding a "Coffee with the Board" in our Community Room from 8:30-11:00. Do we have any volunteers to set it up and make it look "pretty" for them??
  • Our SIV (Site Improvement Visit) will be the 29th - Bret will be here along with other central office personnel - it will be 1:00-3:00.
  • We will be doing Tornado and lockdown drills in the next 2 weeks.

A quote to live and lead by: “The nature of the relationships among the adults who inhabit a school has more to do with its quality and character, and with the accomplishments of its pupils, than any other factor.” Roland Barth

Sharing great finds...


  • A Great Tool for Assessment of/ for All Kinds of Learning that can be multiple choice, true/false or agree/ disagree
  • Friends, check out this awesome application that I started using this week called Plickers! It's been around for a couple of years so you may have heard of it. If not, it's basically a clicker system using paper clickers! The website is plickers.com. Here is a link to a Youtube video teaching you how to set it up. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bejiz2HzUz8 My students love it! It's quick and easy and has lots of possibilities!


  • Vidonni shared a great APP (costs $9.99) called "Yes You Can Handle Them All" - great strategies for working with student behavior!! Christy sent a website very similar at the beginning of the year that is free: pbisworld.com
