Curriculum Updates

Eureka Resources

All math manipulative kits have arrived. Please make sure that you keep the items together and return them to the bags and tubs so we can keep them as kits. These will be checked out to each teacher in Destiny and collected at the end of each school year! Thank you!


As we get further into CKLA you will begin to find that you will need to be creating posters and other items for lessons in CKLA. Not all the items are provided in our kits because they are items your students will work with throughout the year that will look different in all classrooms. Please make sure you are reading your CKLA lessons at least a week ahead to ensure you have time to locate those items or work with your team lead to locate them.


If you completed the tutoring survey - we will have a short meeting just after faculty meeting on Monday to talk through details so that we can get you set up for tutoring the week after fall break.
