Good morning! I sincerely hope everyone was able to enjoy a restful 4-day weekend with some beautiful So Cal weather! Here are the updates for our 4-day work week:
Please continue to follow your PLC minutes from last week as most of you made a commitment to scoring PTAs, unpacking new standards, and looking at agreed-upon student work samples. Chris and I will continue to be present for all or part of each PLCs for support.
Wednesday Staff PD:
We will have our staff PD this Wednesday as last week’s was cancelled. Please bring your laptop, Teaching Mathematics through Problem Solving article from last time, and your journal to Rm. 21 at 1:40p.m.
We are set up to hold our next Instructional Rounds on Monday, Feb. 23rd when 2nd grade will be visiting 3rd grade classrooms. Impact teachers will be guest teachers in 2nd grade classrooms.
Please make sure to read emails from Michelle Syverson that were sent out to most grade levels last week regarding details of your End of Unit assessments. There were many good details included in these emails. Feel free to take 5 minutes of your PLCs to read these together as a grade level too!
