Building a (kinda) New Leveled Book Room

Over the next couple of weeks we will be transitioning our existing book room to a much bigger space in the art room. We will be expanding our library by adding books from Central Noble Elementary, and books that we purchase. I hope that this will help everyone with the need for more leveled books for guided reading groups and instruction. If you see Rhoda and Cole please take a minute to thank them for clearing out this space from years and years of junk that was shoved into this room!

Cougar Spirit Wear

To show support for our high school students that are going to state for wrestling and semi-state for basketball you all can wear jeans and any CN shirt to show support for our students/teams! It's a Great Week to be a COUGAR!


Well my plan was to be done with unannounced observations by now, but due to a week of no school and then missing a week for PBL Coaching Training I'm not done. I will be around for unannounced observations. I'll be in your room to observe your teaching. Please, let me know if there is something you are doing that you'd really like feedback on and I'll try (no promises) to come in during that time.

Fountas and Pinnell Assessment Training

We will be taking a couple morning collaboration times next week to bring everyone up to speed on how to do a running record. The goal is to have classroom teachers do this on your time or during small groups to make assessing the students reading levels as quick and accurate as possible without losing Title Time/Tier time.

Committees For Next Year

I know it's hard to think about, but I'd like input on what committees we feel we need for next year. I'm going to list a few below none of which are set in stone but will hopefully get people thinking about what committees we may need.
