Get Whitt it!

For the strength of the pack is the wolf & the strength of the wolf is the pack...

All classroom teachers, please complete your accountability cadence check in!

Sitting at the Wolf Howl

Please help us out by spreading yourself out during the Wolf Howl. We need some bottoms on the ground, amongst the Wolves. :)

Wolf Howl tomorrow but with a vertical team TWIST!

We have a wolf howl tomorrow, yay!


ELA PLC leaders, YOU are going to start our VERTICAL TEAMING initiative. Woohoo!!


Please have someone on your team take your class first thing Friday morning, pre-Wolf Howl and get them to the Wolf Howl. You will meet in the front conference room from 7:15-8:15 (end of wolf howl). 4th grade will take the lead and identify ONE NEED they see in both reading and writing (30 min each?) and each grade level will respond with they do/can do to support that need.


Your PLC leader will be responsible for sharing that with the team and then the next time ELA meets, you'll bring evidence of what the team is doing is in place.


(If you're the person taking on the "extra" class", come get a leave early pass from Patty!)


Next Wolf Howl, we'll do Math.


This will be our first time trying this vertical teaming, and I am trying to avoid it being an afterschool meeting. Let's use our time productively! I'm really excited!!

Shout outs!

  • Hearing great things about F&P lessons from the literacy closet and how comprehensive they are!!
