Week of April 25, 2011

Good Afternoon,

I'm tired of cold and rainy! Enough of the April Showers already! I need some warm GOLF weather!!

I hope the kids enjoyed the three day weekend. The teachers were busy on Friday with professional learning opportunities. During the AM the teachers learned about many of the Google applications and other web 2.0 tools to use within their classrooms. In the afternoon the teachers spent time updating their curriculum maps.

Yesterday our 7th and 8th grade boy's track teams competed at Iowa City Regina. It sounds like both teams placed 3rd.

MAP Testing
We are continuing to finish our spring MAP testing sessions. We hope to be all completed by the end of this week.

PLP Meetings
Our teachers will be contacting parents soon to set up the spring Personal Learning Plan meetings. The meetings will be held the weeks of May 16th and May 23rd. If you have questions about this process, please contact me.
