Updated Information


*Please consider helping the Academic Decathlon on January, 24th. Thanks to Sheila Stevens for being the first one from CRE to help out! You can fill out the information here:

*Just some FYI about the remainder of this 2nd 9 weeks…

  • Friday, Jan. 17-end of 2nd 9 weeks (early release day)
  • Monday, Jan. 20-MLK Day (no school)
  • so Tuesday, Jan. 21-grades lock at 11:45pm
  • Friday, Jan. 24-2nd 9 weeks report cards go home with students

*New technology you want to share with CRE staff? Let us know so we can schedule our next Techno Tuesday!

*Heads up to teachers k-5…..Materials adoption for science and math is coming up soon!!! Lots of choices…mixing and matching is allowable and there is a lot to consider…more details about that later. Soon we will have the complete sample materials and online codes for each grade level to take a look at the choices.

The only grade levels we have to look at right now are kinder and 5th grade because those are the copies provided to the school reps. We thought that putting them out there would give everyone a jumpstart at looking at what is available. We have been asked that each grade level submit comments and preferences in a Google doc that Melissa Goulden and Jonas Greene have created-more info to come.

The deadline for these comments is January 23.
