Spring Break

Please TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THIS BREAK to relax. April and May are supremely busy for our campus and for every single grade and class. Assemblies, Brickspace, test prep, SPSA, collaborative voting...oh, and TEACHING and LEARNING. You have absolutely owned the first two trimesters and I need the freshest possible staff ever. So please, spring break it up!

Projected Proficiency Follow-UP

I wanted to follow up with specific data on the projected proficiency report message from last week. I have a break down of each grade level and across the school. YOu can run this report in NWEA for your school, can link to individual students, and can identify specific areas of need by student and small group. I've talked to alot of you about this one on one already but wanted to make sure you ALL had access.
