Social Studies Resource Adoption Information

After school voluntary meetings have been scheduled to review the top two selections for new social studies resources as selected by the grade level textbook committees this fall. Teachers attending these meetings will receive professional development points. A lesson using the resources from each of the top two resources will be presented, providing teachers with the opportunity to compare and contrast the two products. Teachers have also been provided with the information they need to login to see and use electronic resources ahead of time and to use these resources in class if they wish. The schedule for the review meetings is as follows:

Grades K & 1 – January 11 and 12

Grades 2 & 3 – January 13 and February 4

Grades 4 & 5 – February 8 and February 29

Two dates have been provided for each grade level, but teachers should only attend one of the meetings for their grade level as the information will be repeated at each session.

Location: Instructional Resource Center Time: 4:00 – 5:30 p.m.


Changes in Contact Information for Relicensure for District Staff: Effective January 4, 2016, renewal process for certified teaching licenses will be handled through Employee Services Department. Contact will be Lori Busing, Certified Staff Specialist.

What will your one word be for this year? Think about the following questions to help you come up with your word.

Remember to find a few quiet moments to yourself. Think about what do I need? What needs to go? What is in my way?

Finally, think about what needs to be done in me and through me?

We will share our one words and take our pictures during our staff meeting this month.

Have a fabulous week!
