Ceiling mounted projectors
The ceiling-mounted LCD projectors are on fixed mounts. They're not meant to be swiveled or adjusted. Please see me to problem-solve if that impacts the way you utilize your projector for instruction.
Middle School Visitors
Please send me a brief update from your PLC this week including the following:
- PLC members
- Any needs or concerns
Resource, Instructional, ELL, Reading & Speech staff should all be part of a grade level PLC. If that means you, please see me if you'd like to discuss what might be the best fit for you. If you were part of a PLC last year that was a good fit, feel free to continue your work there. When we have Google accounts, you'll be able to just keep your notes in a Google doc & simply add me as a viewer; then you won't have to send them to me.
I'd like to meet with the BLT quickly next Friday as noted in Next Week's Events. Typically, I would not schedule this for Friday, but I have an appointment on Tuesday and I don't want to prolong a check-in with BLT. Thanks for understanding!
If you haven't done so , please add your name to this spreadsheet under any committee of which you are a part. If there are other committees at Lowell that I've missed, please feel free to add them. You can type right on the spreadsheet & it will autosave/update.
Join the PTA!
As our PTA supports us in so many ways, we'd like to show our appreciation and support by becoming members. Our goal this year is 100% teacher membership. Please see me if you have any questions or concerns.
Tech Tip- Wonderopolis
Wonderopolis is a wonderful resource to engage student curiosity and integrate some informational text. Different 'wonders' are posted daily. As with any web tool, please preview what you're sharing before you're sharing with students. You'll note that on the left tool bar, there is an Educator Sandbox button with some educator specific content. Please see me if you're interested in using this in your class or if I can be of any help. Students can also access and explore this at home! If you're an iPhone user, there is also a free app.
