Glows and Grows

Glows: It was a pleasure to see so many smiling, humble student faces at the honor roll assembly last Friday. I think honor roll recognition has been slighted as out of touch. Whether it is the best possible practice or not, it is clear that it is meaningful to our honored students. What also means a lot is the hard work and care you give in developing such a strong group of scholars. Thanks for your work in making honor roll meaningful and worthwhile.

Grows/reflective question: How often do you pull small groups for tier one instruction? How often are you instructing students in small groups in ELA? Math? Intervention?

Run, Hide, Fight Materials (K-2)

I'll be placing "Run, Hide, Fight" teaching materials for K-2 teachers. Please take a look and let me know if you have any feedback. Please feel free to use as you see fit.

Inner Explorer/Mindfulness

Current Mindfulness Stats:

Teachers using Inner Explorer in November: 9/29

Teachers practicing Mindfulness (IE or other measures): 11/29

Shout out to all of first grade and to TAP for being so consistent each day/week/month.

If you need assistance in getting started or restarted, let me know. I'd love to stop by to help!


RATE of attendance for last week: 96.7%.

One of the indicators for measuring success at CHE is school attendance and rates of chronic absenteeism. I am trying to stay on top of parent contact and letters home for students with more severe absences but we don't always catch them right away. If you happen to have a student who is missing a ton of school and you need help in working with the family, please don't hesitate to send me a name or ask for advice on how to work with the family.
