GRRREAT things are happening every day at Coker Elementary!

What a MONDAY!

Whew! I want to apologize for not being able to facilitate the Green PLC meeting yesterday. I had to have my husband come and pick me up yesterday and take me home due to sickness. I really hate being absent, so I wanted to apologize to each of you for not being able to keep that meeting. Trust me though, you are glad I wasn't there! haha

Grades 3 - 6 have CPS Clickers available for their use. To learn how to utilize these in your classroom, Mrs. Goss is going to be leading us through how she set up her classes and how she uses these with students. Mark your calendars to attend.

IN TECH TRAINING

Dr. Terry will be with us on December 9th to offer professional development training for student use of technology. Non-Classroom teachers (Specials & ESS) will attend the first session of the day from 7:15 - 8am. ALL classroom teachers will attend during their planning that day. Arrangements for coverage will be made. This will serve as everyone's common planning time for the week of the 7th.

You Matter!

I'm going to be talking quite a bit in the coming weeks about these two words and their power - for you and your students. Here is a preview of the You Matter Manifesto!
