News & Notes

End of Year (EoY) Data: See below for our EoY data due-dates. Please have everything submitted on time & review the "demographics" portion closely, as I will have to aggregate the information for the Superintendent by 6/1.

  • 05/29: Math Benchmarks
  • 06/08: DIBELS

Emergency Sub Plans: In the fall we will be keeping a file cabinet with emergency sub plans in the main office. I am asking that they are updated each trimester (to align with our essential questions). Start thinking about how you would like to organize this...I would love to hear your thoughts!

To the BSI & Special Areas Teams: My coaching block is during your lunch block this week. Anyone want to review Strategies for Writers, co-teach a lesson or just "chat & chew" about this week's edition of the Curriculum Corner? If so, lets get it on the calendar!
