Learning Isn’t Just For Students!
The first Teacher Planning Day is tomorrow, September 15. Although students will have a break from learning, teachers will begin their day bright and early at 8am. They will spend the day learning from each other in Professional Learning Communities. Teams of teachers will be studying/analyzing student MAP data, classroom assessment data, and developing strategic instructional plans to ensure individual growth and high levels of learning for each student. The result from this valueable time will be an even stronger Superhero Training Academy when our Superheroes-In-Training return on Tuesday.
Although we always welcome lunchtime guests, we have limited space in our cafeteria. If you or a family member plan to join us for lunch, you and your student may sit at the designated “Lunch Guest Table”. All other students will need to remain at the class tables. Please do not sit at the blue preschool tables near the stage. These tables are for preschool students only.
