Happy Monday! Here are the updates for this week:
This week we will revisit Hallway Expectations. Please make sure you take Chris’ suggestions and advice via his PBS email and really practice reinforcing this with not only your class, but other classes as well. This will make a difference if ALL students know that ALL staff members are making this a priority expectation.
Thank you for your hard work and diligence in getting Eunice your orders for the CC money that was provided to you and your team. We will not get a clear picture of any remaining money and move forward with building a leveled reader resource room!
Newcomer Impact Teacher interview:
We will be interviewing one candidate on Monday, today, for the Newcomer open position. Fingers crossed….
Thank you for your hard work around lesson plans and turning those in. I will be reviewing a few more for those who were out last week. I need to turn the first two weeks’ worth in tomorrow so please make sure you have made any corrections that I asked of you and resubmit today, Monday.
I will also need this week’s lesson plans by this Wednesday afternoon.
In your PLCs this week, please continue to unpack standards, chapter Units of Study, and look at student work, especially if you have some results this week from your PTA, though that might be more of an agenda item for next week. Looking at specific student work/data will give you a better understanding of where your instruction needs to go next. This is the best data to use when thinking about your teaching- please don’t minimize it’s power.
Amy Illingworth will visit PLCs on Wednesday as a means of continued support with Common Core and PLCs.
Asst. Supt. Cindy Schaub’s visit has been rescheduled from last week to February 25th from 8:30a-10:30a.
Question/s of the Week:
What challenges would you like more support with around CC Math?
What are you experimenting with that you are liking and seeing as successful for student learning?
