Working harder, getting smarter

On Thursday and Friday, instructional coaches from throughout the district had the opportunity to watch Sam Bennett work with PLCs to dig into personalized learning via routines, rituals, systems and structures; the group explored the idea of building social capital for the benefit of collaboration, learning, and student engagement.

The big shout out, however, goes to our 7th grade Humanities PLC comprised of Dustin Allen, Laurilyn Hepler, Kim Souchex and Kristie Neshyba as they served as a fishbowl model for the group.  Outstanding new learning arose, resulting in a group that is hungry to push forward this year and beyond.  Thank you all!

Admin Visits with Students/Classes

As the year winds, down, it is becoming evident that students are battling an array of distractions that are proving to be obstacles to the learning environment.  As a result, Marshall, Ebony and myself will be visiting classrooms to remind students of our expectations, as well as talk about other hot-button issues such as spinners, slime, cell phones, and harassment.

We are currently rearranging our schedules in order to connect with all students.  Due to the testing schedule impacting Math/Humanities, we will be visiting all science classrooms.  Visits won’t exceed 10 minutes.  Additionally, we will be sending out our talking points re: expectations for you to reference, if need be.

We hear you and want to support you and your classrooms; we will develop a plan to ensure that these expectations are in effect as we finish out the year.

 

Reminder: SafeSchools Training; Internet Users Agreement Trainings Must Be Complete

Just a reminder that any staff that has not completed their SafeSchools training and/or the Acceptable Use Agreement must do so using the 3.0 hours of WAC time that is remaining after the calendar was adjusted in February.  Most of you who still need to complete these trainings have been notified via email; we will also reach out to you as a reminder.

 

8th Grade Party Details

Just a reminder: due to a change in our 8th grade party this year (no Oaks Park), we will instead be hosting the party here at Frontier.  Details are below.  The party will extend for an hour or two after school.  If any teachers want to celebrate with some of your former students, please feel free to come by!  🙂

When: Thursday, June 15th

What: 8th grade students will have an adjusted schedule where they will attend their 3 core classes:
  • Core 1: 8:00-9:17
  • Core 2: 9:22-10:39
  • Core 3: 10:44 – 12:00
After attending Core 3, students will have a BBQ lunch together from 12:05 – 12:35
From 12:35 – 4:00/4:10 students will partake in the festivities – these festivities will occur primarily in the large/small gym.  Some activities (weather-permitting) will take place outside of the gym.  These areas will be flagged off for the party.  Students may choose to leave once school is out, or they may stay and ride the activity bus home.
