I hope that everyone has a wonderful and relaxing Thanksgiving Break filled with loved ones, laughter and delicious food!
We need your help. In preparation for the year: We need to know what you feel your needs are for Professional Development. What is it that you really believe you need PD in? I need EVERYONE to give us feedback on what you truly feel your needs are so we can continue to plan and get you the support you need. Please write in the comments section at the end of blog. You can just list. For example: Guided Reading, Writing, Classroom Management, Math Strategies, Dibels Training, Technology, 21st century skill infusion and on and on. All Support Staff, your PD Needs are very important to us as well. You will find a Heading on the White Board that says PD Needs for Support Staff. Please write on the board your needs for Professional Development.
Also, I would like everyone to visit Room 200 sometime on Monday or Tuesday. There are boards that list the 3 Strategic Goals we voted on for our SIP Plan. The Action Steps are listed. I would like to know what you are specifically doing for each goal. If you are on SIT, we will be doing this at our meeting on Monday. Those of you who have been at DL, you'll remember that we did something similar to this with chart paper. It helped us to visually see where we were and were not meeting the goals of our plan. We must execute our SIP with fidelity and amend it as necessary. This part is important. Use sticky notes to add your evidence but I need you to write in different colors on your sticky notes.
