The final opportunity for co-teaching training this year has been scheduled! It will take place on January 31st from 8:00 – 3:00 at Central Office room 131. The training is appropriate for teams of teachers who have not been to a prior training. It’s designed for co-teaching pairs. If you have a team where one has been trained and the other has not, then one person can attend.
The training is designed as an overview of the four approaches to co-teaching with an emphasis on scheduling, role clarification, lesson planning, and other logistical issues.
Please email Danita Long if you would like to attend.

Give the Gift of Attendance this year!
All families want what is best for their children, but they don???t always realize how absences can add up to academic problems. Sometimes they allow children to miss school when it???s not absolutely necessary. This often happens before and after the winter holidays, as families try to squeeze a few more days out of the vacation season. Principals and teachers have an opportunity to reduce holiday absences by ensuring that parents and students understand the toll that absenteeism takes on achievement.
Encourage teachers to talk to students about the importance of showing up in the days before and after the holiday break.
Plan a special event for the first day after the holiday break. If possible, create a contest or find ways to recognize good attendance.
