The first Strengthening Families series began on Tuesday, October 22 at Main Street MS. Strengthening Families seeks to build relationships between parents and their secondary students. Each session begins with families eating dinner together, followed by separate meetings with students and parents. The evening finishes with students rejoining parents in a closure activity. Classes continue on Tuesdays through December.
Grade Level Meetings
District Wide Elementary Grade Level Meetings were held on Wednesday October 23 at Rose Ferrero School. The sessions attended by all elementary teachers and facilitated by principals, assistant principals and directors/coordinators included discussion on first trimester essential standards, use of formative assessments and use of supplemental instructional materials. The input gathered at the meetings will be used in future efforts to decide upon District Essential Standards, support for effective supplemental materials and providing access to useful assessment tools.
