March 3, 2014

Your participation in Monday's peer-to-peer conversation about the coming 1:1 was helpful and interesting, I thought. The answers are often in the room, and I appreciate your participation. If you're interested in a summary and some emerging themes around Managing Equipment and Physical Space, you can click here to see them.

Proficient readers:
  • spontaneously and purposefully create images using all five senses and their emotions as they read.
  • create images that help them engage and make text more memorable.
  • use images to make interpretations from the text.

PTO Grants
PTO grants are due by March 13th. There isn't a limit on the ask; however, the PTO will want to grant as many as possible. So be considerate of your peers when asking. That being said, we had a very successful House Tour, and the PTO is soliciting donations to help support us further.

This week will end with our Talent Show and a Social Courtesy Committee event. I know your students and your peers will appreciate your presence and support at both, if possible.
