New faces at Level Creek

We have increased in points this year due to a higher-than-projected enrollment. As you see these folks at Level Creek, please stop and say hello. They have already been impressed with the friendliness of the staff and I am certain that we will be impressed with them.

Check out for great graphic organizers. Students said they really enjoyed using this.

I have to travel to England next week (21-25) to be in a close friend's wedding. I have never been out more than a few days (sick) from school. This started to make me anxious. What calmed me down was thinking about the folks in the building. There is no better staff to keep a school running. Helen and Cindy will be available should you need anything, as they always are.

Goals of Collaborative Planning

As you meet on Tuesdays:

1. Collaboratively plan lessons

2. Use data/student work to plan

3. Deconstruct the standards

eCLASS Expectations for 15-16

  1. If you have a website (Weebly etc.) the link needs to be in eCLASS (the school's site will eventually not have website links to teacher (weebly, etc.) websites.
  2. Use eCLASS to assign homework at least once per week starting in October. This can be an assignment you would assign regularly - not "extra" homework.
  3. Use discussion boards at least 1x for Language Arts and 1x for Math each Semester
  4. Newsletters - by September newsletters need to be in eCLASS
GA Milestones Results
