CE Sneak Peak

Weekly Focus Newsletter

Positive Communication

What a busy week! This week has been full of purposeful activities:

  • purposeful discussion with goal setting conferences and snapshot data talks in PLC
  • purposeful planning with power planning in each grade level
  • purposeful learning experiences with our Hispanic Heritage Month celebration on Thursday

I am confident that we are heading in the right direction and it is all because of each of you. I was amazed at the number of volunteers that assisted us in our preparation for our event on Thursday. We documented over 56 hours of volunteer hours. Many of our parents also attended our Hispanic Heritage Month celebration. What a wonderful turnout we had. Let's keep this momentum going with positive two-way communication.

Two way communication between families, our community, and school is necessary for the success of us all. Positive school communication benefits not only our school and district, but ultimately our students. The manner in which we communicate and interact with our parents and community affects the extent and quality of involvement in our students' learning. For students, advantages can include increased motivation for learning, improved behavior, regular attendance, and a positive attitude about CE in general. This week our students will hear the experience of many of our district and community leaders regarding career/college experiences during our Read In. We gladly welcome children's author Tomayia Colvin, Officer Rose, School Board Member Latricia Charlot, Congressman Gene Green, and our superintendent Mr. King Davis. Continue maintaining communication with our parents and community members on the positive things happening here at Carroll Elementary. We challenge you this week to make three positive student phone calls. Once you have finished these phone calls, please email Ms. Gonzalez and me to let us know you have finished and share your reflection regarding this activity. Please complete your phone calls by Friday, October 7th. We can't wait to hear about your experiences.

We're down six weeks of instruction. Have a great week!

Power Planning Survey

Thank you Ms. Roeder and Mrs. Sylvester for our wonderful power planning sessions this week. Teachers, we all hope this helped front load you with an instructional sequence and focus for the upcoming weeks. Please take some time and take the following survey so that we can assess how this experience was for you and ways we can improve before the next power planning session. You have until Monday, October 10th to complete the survey. Thank you all for all that you do for our students!
