Faith's Classroom Walk-Thru

Wednesday, April 8 from 1:00-3:30PM, Faith and members of her department will be returning for math and ELA classroom walk-thrus. Thanks for showcasing what you do so well!


We reached our mandated number of staff and parent surveys! Thanks so much for allowing me to harass you about taking the survey. I realize that some of you may have taken it twice and the ridiculousness of that...but thank you!

PAWsitive Behavior Time!

Please email me the name of your 2nd Trimester coin winner. If possible, submit a sentence explaining why the student was chosen. I believe listing reasons was a powerful part of our assembly last time.

  • I have received names from 11 so far.
