Julie Stewart:

  •  District goal for Literacy and Math
  • Literacy: The goal is to have all kids to grade level in both Math and English. For all students to have a deep understanding. In Middle school, in MSTE, they are working on stop Motion. They practice in small groups. They will get to put a movie together at the end of the unit. In Music, the 7 and 8’s write about the music they listen to and how the music connects to them. In Kindergarten the grade 8’s has partnered with the K students. It is a beautiful bond between old and new. Kindergarteners get to listen to an older read. They have taken leaf and letter walks.

We have 4 portables that are supposed to arrive for school. They have been creative to place classes around the school. They have reached out and they are to be getting classrooms

Put in new transition practices to avoid overcrowding. Do not know when the portables will be ready. It is a contracting issue.
