October 10th

Such an awesome team to be a part of on a daily basis!!! 

Kudos for your continued focus on student learning and finding solutions for concerns that we have control over. 


The hallway displays are looking great! They showcase authentic student work utilizing common core standards. Please be sure to add a note that shows families the standards and what the purpose of the product.

Powerschool Assignment - Reminder that we have decided to have two ELA and Math assignments into Powerschool Gradebook. Assignment do not have to be tests they can be ticket out the door, project, literature circles, etc).  If your interim reports didn't populate as intended please email me the students that it impacted so we can share with academics and hope to decrease these concerns for first quarter report cards.
PowerSchool and PowerTeacher will be unavailable from 5pm, Friday, October 14th until 6am, Monday, October 17th due to DPI system maintenance.

Critical Thinking

Learning spaces -- we have purchased some furniture to increase voice and choice for our students. We have five classes that are fully invested in flexible learning spaces. We have some wavy tables (one side of the table has wheels and is able to move when needed) and Hokki stools that would love to have a home in places that would utilize them. Are you one of those classrooms? - email Ashley if you are interested in trying out seating options or a table.


Magnet Theme Team -- We are excited about our Theme Teams the purpose of these teams is to have a collaborative effort for our school. The teams are intended to support our school culture in multiple ways to drive our magnet theme. The teams have been designed to support multiple facets of the school community.  #weareunderwood
