Building a Love of Reading and Writing

At Tuesday's staff meeting, we talked about balanced literacy components and quality reading and writing instruction. Take a look at this short article to add to your toolbox and get some insight into best practices into balanced literacy. I look forward to digging into this alongside you!

Thank you for your generosity for Tamrie! Between the staff and PTA, we collected $1,045! We can have such a great impact as a team!

PDAS Updates

Ralph and I have been completing our second round of official PDAS Walkthroughs, and you have been provided written feedback. Please make sure to put the second copy back in one of our boxes, so we have the official documentation. If you are on ALFTA and would like a summative conference, please let us know.


For the teachers who were appraised with a 45 minute observation, we will be finalizing your appraisals and setting up the summative conferences. Thanks for sending in your TSR forms on time!

Printer and Copier Reminders: Remember to try your best to print one copy to your grade level printers and then make copies in the workroom, or print all to the workroom.
