A Note From Mr. Christ
Dear Paddock Families,

I hope you and your family have an enjoyable, safe Halloween.

Paddock Multicultural Week
Please make sure you are sending at least 1-2 additional clean masks with your child each day. These masks should be well fitting and cover both the student's nose and mouth without the student needing to continually pull the mask up. Having a well fitting mask is imperative to keeping our students safe and limiting close contacts, should a positive case arise. Thank you for your help in this.
Please reach out to Renee Urbanski, firstname.lastname@example.org, with any questions.
Starting this year and moving forward, all curriculum and program purchases will follow a new district Research, Design Implementation Model (RDIM). The RDIM is a cyclical review process that allows the district to research and pilot materials for district use on a regular basis. During an RDIM cycle pilot, volunteer teams of teachers, specialists and administrations review potential programs, participate in professional learning, implement assigned units and collaborate in discussion on what resources best serve our D15 students’ needs and align to our district’s instructional vision. Currently, District 15 is engaging in three different pilot projects and we are implementing a new 6th grade math curriculum. The current three pilot projects are occurring in K-5 Math, 6-8 Science, and 7-8 English Language Arts. As we explore the differing features of programs and corresponding levels of student growth in learning, students in classes participating in pilots may have different materials, homework and grading practices during this time. For example, the number of graded assignments given may be different, and possibly less, as teachers are spending more time conferencing with students individually and in small groups to help guide students in their learning. Should you have any questions, please reach out to your child’s teacher.
