Week of October 5th

Cline's Corner

Thank you for your focus and attentiveness to data today. The work you did today will impact instruction this year for our students. We are moving on from here! I can't wait to see the difference we are going to make in the lives of our students and their families. Your consideration of not only the student, but their family is inspiring. We must consider the whole child and how we support their learning in lots of different ways. Thank you for your selflessness and your drive and will to always work towards continuous improvement!

Snapshots of Student's Misunderstandings in Math

Here is a quick read that identifies some of the common misconceptions that students have in math.


Hagan's Hotline

Wright Jets are Bucket Fillers!

You might have noticed the colorful bulletin boards in front with Bucket Filler Pledges from ALL of our students! The bucket-filling idea comes from the two books:

Did You Fill a Bucket Today? and How Full is Your Bucket? These books reinforce the concepts of "deposits" and 'withdrawals' and 'emotional bank accounts" from Stephen Covey's The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People.

All grade levels have had guidance lessons on being a "Bucket Filler" (emotional deposits) and not a "Bucket Dipper" (emotional withdrawals.) Please use the Bucket Filler sheets to catch someone "filling a bucket" ,with a positive word or deed. There is a bucket in the hall to put your bucket filler sheets daily. You can be creative in your classroom with using the bucket filling idea in your classroom to promote prosocial behaviors!

Self Care for Teachers

REMEMBER to SHARPEN YOUR SAW regularly!! Good self-care is so important! You have to "fill your own bucket" so you can effectively fulfill your personal and professional roles!
