Happy Thursday,

Hopefully, you remember that we have NO SCHOOL tomorrow, Friday, January 13, 2017, nor Monday, January 16, 2017.

Tomorrow, teachers will be engaged in professional learning!  In the morning, teachers will be working with the NCSU reading coach regarding 3 reading opportunities every day, the release of responsibility model, structure of mini-lessons, and the different types of conferences to have with students, small group instruction and flexible ways to group students, assessment and using assessment to inform instruction. In the afternoon, all teachers will focus on learning more about and planning for Student Led Conferences. In addition, specialists will be engaging in a book study about how to help children develop growth mindsets in the classroom.

We have been having some interesting weather, so please make sure children come prepared for cold temps, and have layers they can remove when it warms up.  Ice has been an issue on our playground, and we continually assess for safety.
