Good morning! Here are the updates for our last week before some much-deserved R and R:
Please look for your email from Chris regarding PBS and Guest Teacher expectations.
On Monday, today, TK and K teachers will visit first grade looking at instruction and learning from a different perspective.
As we have Golden Eagle awards this week, please plan to end ELD a little early if your ELD affects a grade level that has Golden Eagle since we begin the assemblies at 8:45a.m.
Please use this week in your PLCs to focus on one of more of the following:
Unpacking future standards/Units of Study chaptering, planning lessons based on unpacking, analyzing student work, or discussing/working on report cards.
PLNU Art Students:
The PLNU Art students will be visiting Tuesday, March 17th to discuss their planned lesson with their respective teacher. This round they will be working with 1st, 2nd, and a couple of 3rd grade teachers. Please plan to be available at 2:30 to discuss with them. If you have duty, please arrange to switch with someone. I will be sending teachers their student’s name and topics once I receive it from Dr. Sangren today. They will return after Spring Break to teach the two lessons on Tuesday April 14th and 21st at 1:30p.m.
There will be no meeting this week. Please use this time to complete report cards.
We will have some PD on Monday, April 6th. I will send out an agenda on April 4th or 5th. Please expect to meet in the morning of April 6th and have grade level planning time on your own in the afternoon.
Please, please, please pay close attention to the return of placement cards from your students. We need them all returned by this week and given to Martha so we can get a more realistic understanding of projected enrollment for next school year. We do not need you to complete any academic info on the students at this time. We will return the cards to you after break and discuss the new plan for this information. At this time, we simply need your help to get an emergency card back from each of your students with info on whether they plan to return or not.
Lounge Clean Up:
We all appreciate your continued efforts to keep our lounge clean by cleaning your dishes, and taking them home or putting them away, and cleaning the microwave after usage. Our refrigerator will be cleaned out over break so make sure to throw away or take your items from the fridge and freezer this week.
Question of the Week:
Which focus standard/topic did your students show most success in mastering this past trimester? Why do you think this was?
