Reminders

  • Teach Habit 5, Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood
  • We would like all students to learn the school pledge
  • Encourage student usage of reading/math practice programs
  • Everyone outside in orange vests after school

Concerns

  • Not all upper grade classes have gotten started on ALEKS; this is an effective intervention and extension to prepare students for SAGE.
  • Students need reminders to have a plan for play when they go to recess.
  • Some lower grades are still using programs other than Waterford. Students should not be on programs other than the research-based programs we've chosen for use this year.
