Bobcat Weekly Update

We Know Every Child by Name and by Need

September 22, 2017

Great news to our end our week! Kelli Sanders has delivered a very healthy baby boy! I haven't heard the name yet, but mom and he are happy and healthy!

Have a great weekend!

A few things:

One small thing article - This is a great article about making small changes that can have a big impact! It is OK to start small, as long as we start!

Creating Culture - this article is about how we can use the idea of a growth mindset to continue to work and grow in our craft!

Signature line in email - Please be sure to include your name, grade/subject taught, and you phone number in your email signature. With families who have multiple kids in the district, it helps to know who the emails are from.

Lakeview Learner (formally Top Cat) - Please fill in student names on sheet by 9/29. We will visit classrooms the morning of October 2nd.

Guided reading tracking sheet

As you are completing you DRA 2 assessments, please input your students into our campus Guided reading tracking form. Thank you!

Superintendent's Goals

Be sure your teams have reflected and posted responses here.

Faculty Advisory Council - Laura Janese

Link to Google Form

Yesterday at the FAC meeting Dr. Warren assigned homework to each member. He wants campuses to answer the following 3 questions:

1. What incentive ideas do you have teacher attendance?

2. What did the district do really well/not so well for Professional development? (engage, first weeks before kids come)

3. What did you like/not like about back to school? (convocation, days before school, curriculum, pacing, etc.)

Problem of Practice/Instructional Focus

Each year, our leadership team analyzes data, looks for trends, and identify areas where we can have the greatest impact on student learning. Our Problem of Practice is not very different from last year, but we have trimmed it down to be more specific. Please review the document below and let me know if you have any questions.

SST Collaboration

I have created a document and I highly encourage you to please leave comments on what changes should be made. As a campus we do not have a common system on who should be brought to SST and when you should bring them. I made a google doc with some of the basics - please comment for your grade level as to what changes you would like to see made. We will all be able to see you comments, and therefore we can come to decision on our SST plan.

TTESS Pre-conference Form

As we are finishing up our goal setting confernces, we can begin looking forward to TTESS observations. Below is the Pre-conference lesson planning form you will use during your TTESS Pre-conference. It also looks similar to last year, but we adjusted a few questions to ponder so they align better with our Problem of Practice and Instructional Focus.
