2019-20 Planning

I look forward to meeting with each team during your specials time on Monday, March 11th. During this time, we will discuss possible staffing plans. I do not have SpEd staffing at this time, so I will schedule a seperate conversation with our SpEd team. Interventionists, please feel free to join any grade level time.

If time allows, I will also use this time to capture input on our class list process.

In the meantime, if you have any questions/concerns, please come see me.

What: Encourage reading!

How: Through an initiative to encourage within students the capacity to reason, to form decisions based on intelligent analysis, to communicate, and to live compassionately with one another through reading.

  • "One Book" to support annual theme: 2019 Theme is "Read Together, Wonder Together"
  • 2019 book is Out of Wonder by Kwame Alexander (Books have been placed in your mailbox)
