This year will be excellent as we continue to provide academic experiences that rigorous, relevant, and help them build relationships while making real world connections. We will continue to provide teachers with professional development on the recently adopted NGSS Standards. In Grades K and 1, teachers will receive professional development around vocabulary acquisition and oral language. An ongoing focus will be placed on providing your students with challenging learning activities that promote deep problem solving and vocabulary development. Also, we will continue to use various student assessments to improve student learning.
