Cordelia Hills Staff Update

Believe, 3/15/2019

Glows and Grows

Glows: Great job with the report card comments. A ton of work but the vast majority of staff put a lot of time, effort, and care into the message they are sending parents. It is appreciated. I actually enjoy reading report cards.


Grow: How are you going to use the spring break to actually take a break from your work? Are you challenging yourself to really disconnect for a few days

Projected Proficiency

NWEA has a report that projects CAASPP proficiency based on Winter Map Scores. We are ahead of where we were last year. Our numbers held pretty tight last year based on the projections. April is a busy month but continue to really focus in with intentional instruction and support for our students. They are ready to shine and show the hard work you have been putting in.
