Lewis Ledger - Week 3

August 12, 2018

Sunny Heights is where everyone is valued and respected. Our vision is to inspire a passion for learning in a student-centered, family friendly environment.

Week 2 Success!

School is now in full swing as we have completed our second week of school. The positivity and coherence to PBIS Tier I is having an impact on the vast majority of our students. The student experience is improving as we model CORE each day. We must keep the positive momentum up each day even when met with challenges. Our success hinges on everyone working together and supporting one another. Thank you to all for your commitment!


Shout Out and a big WELCOME to Bailey from Playworks! She is getting to know our students and how to get the most out of recess.

Shout Out to everyone that has contributed extra time and duties to fill in lunch duty, car rider, daycare, and everywhere else!

Shout Out to those serving in a variety of leadership roles. There were quite a few meetings this week, thank you for the time and effort!

Data Blast

At least 50% of students sitting in American classrooms have had one or more adverse childhood experiences. Here is a great article to introduce or refresh our understanding of how to be a trauma informed teacher.

Staff Focus and Action Items

Tier I Classroom PBIS - Continue to review the PBIS Tier I information shared last week (I know it was a lot). Reach out to the committee for questions or clarification. It is very important that we commit to the process and provide consistency for EVERYONE. We will see the results that we are striving for if everyone is committed to being part of the TEAM!

Teacher Data Collection Form - Please fill out Teacher Data Collection Form when applicable; this was very helpful to support good data discussions throughout the year last year.

Professional Growth - A couple reminders in regards to professional growth expectations: PGP points should be uploaded into your SFS so that they can be applied to your evaluation; everyone should have a professional learning goal that they have set with Mercedes.

Social Studies & Reading Support - If you would like me to come in to teach a social studies lesson for your class, please let me know a time, day, and topic that would work. Also, let me know if you would like me to come read a story to your class.
