PLC Focus

We will really dig into our STAR and look at individual student results. There is so much information embedded in the data that will help us make effective instructional decisions for kids.

PLC Folder

This is a direct link to the shared PLC folder. Once you open it you may want to star it so it won't get lost in the "Shared with Me" folder.

Things to look forward to:

Instructional "WINS!!"

We would love to hear about your successes in the classroom. Please share them with us so we can share them with everyone!

GRIT Ticket

We are going to start acknowledging students who have GRIT. You can give a student a "GRIT Ticket" to acknowledge their excellent behavior. We have printed tickets in the office for you to pick up.


HOW TO "GIVE" A GRIT TICKET:

1) Verbally acknowledge and praise GRIT behavior.

2) Fill out the GRIT ticket. You can use the back of the ticket to describe why the GRIT ticket is being given.

3) Turn it into the office for us to announce during announcements. We will write down the student's name for the monthly drawing.

4) We will then return the GRIT ticket back to you to give to the student to take home.

Big picture
