Shout Out To:

Julie for all your hard work and support.

All the teachers for completing report cards by the due date.

Mathis. Great job having posted grade level objectives.

Cycle 3 Information

December 4 to February 2
  • PBIS Re-engagement
  • Conferring (K-2)
  • Complex Text (3-5)

Cycle 3 Theory of Action

If our K-2 classrooms have strong data aligned conferring during Readers Workshop then students will develop the necessary reading behaviors that allow them to read on grade level.

If our 3rd through 5th grade students engage with grade level complex text then they will develop the reading skills to read on grade level and master grade level standards.

Important Information

  • There will be no Music the month of December. Music will resume when we return from Winter Break

  • Parent Teacher Conference schedules should be turned in by the end of the day Monday with any conferences that require support (Ann Martin, Afterschool Program, Meg) indicated.

  • Our Hoot and Hollar is Wednesday. Certificates were distributed on Friday to all staff.

  • SRI should be administered to all 3rd-5th graders by the end of next week.

  • For student safety, do not leave students unsupervised in your classroom. It only takes a second for something to happen.

  • For student safety, please report to yard duty on time. Students are being released when the bell rings and it is important that supervision is available at that time.

  • All requests for personal days must be submitted in writing either via email or a B Form at least 3 days advance of any days taken. Please note that personal days taken without prior approval will not be approved.
