Lab and COW usage

3rd, 4th and 5th grade have started Smarter Balance Interium Assessments to help their students be successful on the Summative Smarter Balance this spring. All of this testing is done online to maintain the formatting and tools available as the Summative test. What that means to you - the Lab and COW are pretty booked up. IFs, administration and Linda have a master schedule of the testing, which Linda includes in her weekly tech schedule. We all apologize for an inconvenience this may cause you. Thank you for your flexibility!

Secondary Classes Reminder

Please make sure you are updating your secondary classes with Briseida and Linda. They are the ones who make sure Skyward (which talks to DataDirector and Homeroom) and DIBELS are correct. They don't know to make changes unless you tell them!

Procedures brush up

As we finish out the month of December and head into the new year after break, now is a good time to review and reteach classroom and school-wide behavior expectations and procedures. In the hustle and bustle of this holiday craziness, these often get rushed just get everything done. If you haven't already, start planning ways this can be incorporated into your day when we return from break.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

I know it's easier said than done, but please get some rest over break and enjoy time with family and friends without thinking (too much) about school. You all deserve a peaceful, relaxing two weeks to recharge.
