Assistant Principals' Corner

Teachers,

Thank you for your diligence in working to make contact with every student in your classroom. If you haven't already confirmed with me, please send an email to Ashley that you have contacted ALL families or have NOT contacted all families (no later than Friday, March 27th at 8am). Continue to use the google form link to update students you can't reach.

https://forms.gle/snP7LeTfh3uPtqo29



Also, keep up the good work with your digital instruction. Ms. Bagwell and Mr. Soto will be looking through the courses to see how and what you all are doing and seeing how we can support you.

New School Map

I have created the map for our new school. It will NOT be 100% finalized until the building is constructed and we can see spaces in person. As many of you know, things can look very different on paper compared to real life. The map is posted below.


  1. As you will be able to see, every room and space is assigned. As of right now, we will have two pull out spaces. These will NOT belong to one person. These will be spaces that can be used for students requiring pull-out support. For example, our intensive students or SPED students. These rooms will be scheduled around the pull-out schedule.

  2. The SPED room will be Dr. Caldwell's office and will also be used as a meeting space for IEPs and possibly for ISS if needed.

  3. The AC room is the Academic Coaches office. This will be used for all professional development, unless there are multiple PDs occurring on one day. The goal is to use this space for PD so we do not have to close down the Media Center during the school day.

  4. The TAG (Gifted) room will also be utilized as a pull out space when gifted classes are not being held.

  5. The MTSS space will primarily be a Meeting space, but will also be the office of our new MTSS coordinator, Mr. Johnson. This room will have a conference table and be available for use when not being utilized for MTSS purposes.

  6. When the Innovation Lab is not in use, it can also be a pull out space for learning. A schedule will be developed.

  7. The CCR is the Community Collaboration Room. This is Ms. Martinez’s office and will also be the location of our food pantry and all of the donations we receive for students.

  8. Some disclaimers:

    1. The map may change, but not much.

    2. Classroom order will NOT change unless we add an extra class.

    3. Every support staff member will be housed in a homeroom classroom next year.

      1. We have communicated with most support staff which teacher you will be co-teaching with, but we are still figuring some things out.

      2. We will be moving to a "co-teaching" model similar to what they have at Sawyer Rd. and Dunleith. Our goal is to have two teachers/paras in every room, unless we are running a different model. (NOT everyone will have a co-teacher all day)

      3. For instance, the "co-teaching" model will mean it is no longer Mr. Sponge Bob's room. It will now be Mr. Sponge Bob and Mr. Patrick's room to share, decorate, etc.

Phonics Cycle Results

Typically, I only share phonics results with the Kindergarten and First grade teams. Today, I thought it would be nice to show the results of the hard work of the K & 1 teachers and paras with everyone. Here is the link to the district Phonics results for cycle 8: https://my.visme.co/projects/y4jx0p1x-voql9k0zjp482x1w
