The last two weeks of school will be very busy. It is busy enough without bad weather. I would like to thank all who helped in dismissing a tiny bit early on Friday and cancelled evening plans due to inclement weather. Many of the events taking place this week and next week at SSS are listed below. Some of the things that we will be discussing this week in our Professional Learning Communities will be:
-Teaching and evaluating students at SSS in the areas of innovation, life and career skills, and technology. We will be discussing the specifics of the exact skills that we hold students and adults accountable for in the next calendar year. These will be added to a uniform grading and reporting method for students in grades K-8. The goal will be to esure that all students are academically and socially successful at SSS and in the communities they live in.
As always if you comments or concerns about anything at school or in this site please forward those comments to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 502-803-0869.
