This edition previews the upcoming professional development we have scheduled for this week. Take a look at the dates, times and topics so that you can be prepared. I am looking forward to a week full of great learning together!

Professional Development Schedule!

Investigations Trainings

CPM

November 20th: Junior High (all day), observations and team teaching with Erica Warren

December 4th: Grades 6 through Algebra I, all day at the ADMIN building in the PD room

Shout Outs!

Let's hear it for...


Our 6th grade math teachers who hosted Erica Warren (one of our CPM trainers) this past week and left her extremely impressed with how our CPM classrooms are functioning. Erica was so impressed that our 6th grade teachers may even be hosting a CPM film crew to video tape their awesome lessons! WOW!


Our 3rd grade team at Lorane for managing to keep a sense of humor as we move through this implementation process! Keep up the great work and positive attitudes!
