Staff that #gobeyond

Welcome back

Short but Sweet.....


  • Short Observations will Wrap up this week
  • There will be no ROAR for K-2 this week (parent meeting) I will let you know a day next week I will make it up so you can collaborate
  • #observeme Did you do your September? Have you looked at your September feedback? Have you tried something you saw from another teacher? Did you forget about it all together? I know my form was blank from September, How am I supposed to get better? The single greatest resource we have is each other. The wealth of knowledge we have he in this building lies in you. I love risk-taking, and learning from others. I see so many people trying new things. Keep it up and use the observe me peer observation to learn from each other.
  • I'm thinking about starting a Homework Committee. I'd like a few of us to find a book to research about homework and its effectiveness. Let's read it and work together on drafting a homework "policy" for 2018-2019. I'd also like to get a few community members and parents involved. Let me know if you are interested. I have some ideas, but it is not my decision to make alone. I would love to work together and figure out what is best for kids. Looking at starting before winter break. So we have some time to read while away from school.
