Weekly Bulletin-Wilson/PALS

Week of September 19-23, 2016

ELA/Math Professional Development

Last Thursday was a busy day at Wilson! In addition to the ELAC and PTA meetings, both English and math teachers met for 1/2 day professional development. Snapshot of those meetings:


  • Math teachers were introduced to a new model of professional development that Wilson was selected for based on the collaborative culture already established in the math department. Transforming Team Objectives:

Transforming Teams empowers educators to work better together by:

• Creating a framework for effective collaboration,

• Building critical leadership skills and content expertise in an era of rising standards,

• Ensuring teams align on school practices proven to improve outcomes and hold each other accountable for success.

  • ELA teachers also collaborated and planned instruction. Most importantly, they talked about the strengths of their group and their accomplishments! See picture below!

Lastly, be sure to see the goal setting schedule below. We will need everyone to be prepared and on-time as we have 28 conferences to complete. Let me know if you need any help!


Have a great week Wilson!!

Kudos and Shoutouts

Congratulations to Ms. Knudson for conducting her first ELAC meeting with the assistance of Ms. Rosie!! Together they had a great meeting for our EL parents. One great outcome is the parents are interested in an English class and we are making it happen! Please let us know if you know a parent that may be interested in this class and we will facilitate!
