Eastside: One Team, One Dream
"We never lose. We either win or we learn. - Nelson Mandela
Week of October 28th
Our mission is to build a strong educational foundation while meeting the unique needs of our students.
Working in partnership with the community, Eastside Elementary will provide all students:
A collaborative team of professionals who are committed to improve their practices, so that all students learn at high levels
A safe, positive, and inviting learning environment
An engaging and challenging curriculum focused on essential academics and life skills
Individualized and timely support that provides students with what they need to succeed
You all knocked it out of the park with Student led Conferences!
The parent survey gave us some great results. We will look at these in detail later. Read this comment about what one parent said was a strength of Eastside. "Eastside strives to be the best in all areas. With that being said academics do not solely drive this school. The staff at Eastside make school fun again. They make sure that the students are not only challenged intellectually but show their passion in how much they believe in all the students."

Details for the Week
Red Ribbon week is this week. See upcoming email from Mrs. Hogg about details of the event!
Don't forget to practice with your students "Cutting down the nets". This will be how we throughout the year celebrate our progress to student and building wide goals. Feel free to have students climb a step ladder and pretend to cut down a piece of the net. Tell them at the end of the year we will cut down our nets and they will all take a piece of it home!!! Let Mrs. Krogman and I know when your grade will be practicing. We would love to be a part of it! ONE TEAM ONE DREAM
Decodables have been moved and labeled. They are all in the room across from Mrs. Hogg's classroom above the LLI kits. Mrs. Cardin and Ms. Newkirk did a great job organizing and labeling them. I will send out the spreadsheet they have created with the title and skill addressed in them. More decodables have been ordered. When you take decodables from the room, sign them out in the notebook. When you return them draw a line through your name and place them back accordingly. Each decodable book individually cost about $10, so keeping up with these resources is key. If you would like to place the ones that students have just finished reading in their familiar book box, please do. Just make sure kids know the importance of taking care of them. The rigor of these books is much better than those from Reading A to Z.
Last day of this club group will be November 8th. The survey results showed 48% preferring to do a 3 club rotation in the year. We will do three clubs for a 12 week rotation. We will do a club sign up day during the week of November 11th.
SMART goals - Do the students know the goal for your essential standard? Make sure to post your goal with your essential standard in your room, so students know the focus. I think most of you for Unit 1 had an 80% goal.
SIT doc updating - for any students in grades 4 and 5 - needs to be completed by end of day on Friday. All staff working with these students on reading interventions will input a comment. This comment should be focused on decodables, phonics skills, and phonological awareness.
MAP Progress Monitoring will be with grades 4 and 5. Please refer to the new schedule I sent out about when students will take their test.
3-5 DIBELS Progress Monitoring this week.
Veterans' Day is upon us. We will celebrate with our Veterans and those currently in the service on November 11th at 10:00 AM. As in year's past, younger grades will not participate since this is a reverent ceremony. More information to come soon. Be looking for a spreadsheet from Mrs. Krogman to sign up to bring a breakfast item for our veterans to enjoy. It's a small way to let them know we appreciate them!
