Kindergarten Teachers PD Sign up


I will release the evaluation schedule this week.

Teachers, select one area of the Marzano (DQ1-DQ4) tool that you have worked on this year and be able to present data showing the growth. Teachers who have been previously evaluated should use their previous year's evaluation to determine what area they should be working on.

Remeber, Student Growth is 40% of your evaluation rating.

Blank Evaluation Tool

I will also be using the ELEOT tool to give immediate feedback regarding the learning environment of your classroom.


Please be able to show data regarding your ELA and Math groups.

Maggie, the therapy dog says "things are looking up"!

Big picture



Pansophia Academy receives a $15,000 grant to fund PLTW: Gateway program for MS students.

Project Lead the Way creates an engaging classroom environment unlike any other. PLTW empowers students to develop and apply in-demand, transportable skills by exploring real-world challenges. Through our pathways in computer science, engineering, and biomedical science, students not only learn technical skills, but also learn to solve problems, think critically and creatively, communicate, and collaborate. We also provide teachers with the training, resources, and support they need to engage students in real-world learning.

New! Computer Science Standards


Members of the Computer Science Standards Development Team presented the proposed Michigan K-12 Computer Science Standards to the State Board of Education. .

PA Committee Members:

Cohen Sangster, Charity Willoughby, Haley Houtz, Tina Maurer, Kari Hawes, Jamie Mueller

Thank you to the above members for being in the right place at the right time! We will begin unpacking the standards and determining where the standards are currently being taught and areas that are not being taught and need to be added. As we need help with this mission, we will have all staff ERF sessions.

This Committe will begin meeting in April! Stay tuned!
