HIllcrest Family Newsletter
Updates for Hillcrest Families - Late August 2017
Happy New Year!
This is the last summer edition of our family newsletter. As the school year begins, please look to get a new edition via email every week. If email doesn't work for you, please let the office know and we will send a print copy home with your child.
Staff is Back!
On Tuesday, our building's leadership team (called SAIL) shared with the rest of the staff what they have been working on all summer. We are set up for greatness as we continue to improve how we deliver instruction to students. Here is our Theory of Action that guides all of our work:
IF: The Hillcrest Instructional Teams* use PLCs to collaborate around student data and employ highly effective responsive practices**...
THEN: All students will demonstrate higher levels of performance and engagement in literacy and mathematics.
IF teachers engage in PLC cycles (collecting and analyzing student data to plan instruction)on an ongoing basis,
IF teachers engage in learning, have opportunities to practice and are given feedback around the implementation of highly effective responsive practices**,
THEN teachers will provide highly effective responsive instruction**, including small group instruction.
I know this statement has a lot of education words that may be a mystery to most people, but we wanted to share how our commitment to your child and their learning drives everything we do!
