Strength and Weakness Found During Informal Observations

  • Teachers maintain the high expectation of appropriate/correct content vocabulary from students during whole group, small group, and partner discussions.


  • Objectives continue to be problematic. Objectives are to be posted in the appropriate instructional area for the content using a font large enough that it can be seen from various locations within the classroom. The objective is to be shared with students so that they understand the vocabulary and learning that is to take place during the lesson, throughout the lesson, and as part of the lesson conclusion.

Attention Required: Homeroom Representative for Student Council Needed

This year Mary Gardill and Norma Leaf will be starting a partial Student Council minus the president, vice president, treasurer, and secretary. Each homeroom from kindergarten through fifth grade are to elect 1 representative and 1 substitute in case of absence by the representative. The homeroom representatives will attend meetings throughout the school year in order to initiate, sustain, and complete several events from spirit days to service projects. More information will follow once homeroom representatives have been determined. Please send the name of your homeroom representative and substitute to Mary and Norma by Friday, September 26th.
