This Week at Jones....

Celebrations, Updates, Priorities and Tidbits

Parent U at Jones!

This year we are offering a series of programs focused on parent engagement and building parenting skills. Please check the master schedule for Triple P: Raising Resilient classes.

Additionally, as part of our Racial Equity work we are hosting a Microaggression workshop. If you did not attend one last year you should mark your calendars and share with parents. It is an amazing opportunity and a true compliment to our work at Jones. This first round of classes is Tuesday, September 29th.

North Carolina Educator Evaluation System (NCEES)

There is a great Wiki space for all the North Carolina Educator Evaluation System materials. This is not just for teachers - Social Workers, Counselors, Digital Lead Teachers, Media Coordinators, Principals - we call all find helpful resources on this site. Thanks to everyone for their work on their PDP and creating meaningful goals to guide your individual professional development. A goal this year is to get to know our evaluation instrument a little better - a little deeper - and document our progress through on-going evidence and artifacts. Observation windows have opened so please contact your assigned administrator to schedule your first observation.

Language and Literacy

How do we build effective, engaging literacy-rich classrooms? This year as a staff we are all delving deeper into this subject. Certified staff should follow this link to select your preferred literacy-based activity.
