On Friday, October 9th, CCS Staff spent the day working on Learning Progressions, Remote Learning Expectations, Eureka Math, Science work, and Technology implementation.
Chris Motika, SAU 53 Curriculum Coordinator, spent the morning with us helping to align learning progressions for Math, English Language Arts, Science, and Social Studies. All teachers met together to align our standards and curriculum K-8 so that we can get a full picture of how our grade level standards align with the previous and following grade level(s). We look forward to continuing this work through the 2020-2021 school year!
Mr. Motika will be joining us at our TUESDAY, OCTOBER 20TH SCHOOL BOARD AT 6PM.

Technology Resources & An Update from Mrs. Duval
Keep an eye out for Technology resources to be made available in your Clever homepage. Mrs. Duval is adding access to typing programs, coding programs, and programs to learn about digital safety and digital health.
Typing Practice for 1-8: Students are encouraged to practice their typing skills using TypingClub. These should be done in 15 minute increments a few times a week to build muscle memory. Students can access this program at ccsrams.typingclub.com and log in with their usual username (ex: 2523smjo) and google password (all lowercase). We are looking to join this program to Clever so students can simply log in with the Clever button.
Coding for 1-5: Students in grades 1-5 can practice their coding and design skills using CodeSpark. CodeSpark is a fun puzzle based way to learn the basics of programming. There are also opportunities to explore more advanced concepts like automation, game design, boolean logic and animation. The weekly access code and directions on how to use this program can be found here: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1Fl62gE-AhwfTjw1TJITwA_Qm5EWm57N01KND-nIfrzI/present
A Special Thank you Chichester Fire Department!
