Monday is Professional Growth Day for our staff. This is a non-student day where our teachers will collaborate and learn. Some of our focus areas include: MyConnect training, reviewing test scores, writing student achievement goals for the year and exploring influences in educational achievement. We will also review the new LCAP (Local Control Accountability Plan) requirements. LCAP focuses on shifting decision making power to local districts and is the new way that schools and districts receive educational funding.
We continue to focus daily on implementing Common Core math standards in each classroom. You should see evidence of this work through discussion with your child about what they are learning in math. If you are interested in math resources to help your child at home, the California Math Council’s website is a great place to look. There is a tab at the top called “For Families” and has numerous articles, games, and resources for families. http://cmc-math.org/
Thank you so much for all your support. Enjoy the three day weekend with your children!
