Peek at the Week
January 29 - February 2, 2018
A few things to think about...
A growth mindset. It's necessary in the ever-changing world of education. I never would've imagined, even 15 years ago, that we'd be going 1:1 at all, let alone all the way down to first grade! But here we are! I'm proud of each of you for giving it your all. For showing up each day to face the challenges of 'growing' in your work. Our jobs are not easy. But in so many moments throughout the day, when I see the joy on our students' faces when they are handed that new device, or when they stand on the stage and master that song or part they've been working on all month, I'm reminded of why we are here! I hope you find joy in those moments as well. Let's continue to grow together!
It's BUDGET Time!
Y'all know I'm Google-challenged (see above :)), but I tried to create a Google form for you to complete that will give me input about what you need or what you'd like to have next year. I meet with Mr. Wilson and his cabinet on March 1 and need to prepare our budget proposal by February 15th! Please complete this form if you'd like a voice in our budget process. I need all submissions by February 9th. (and if the form isn't working, let me know)
Guided math plans should be kept in a notebook on your guided reading/math table daily. These are not optional. Small group plans are essential to effective instruction. I've asked Mr. Cobbs and Mrs. Maness to create some guided math templates that they will share with you during your GLP this week.
