November 2019

The month of October has been very busy for teachers in collaborating to set goals and developing strategies for our 2019-2020 School Development Plan.  During PD Days, early dismissal afternoons, and lunch hour meetings, we have been looking at our report card data from the last school year, analyzing results, and making decisions as to what we need to focus on with students this school year.  As a result, we have decided to continue our goal from last year that teachers will create opportunities for the exploration and application of key subject-specific vocabulary, so that students’ ability to communicate understanding will improve.  During upcoming PD Days, early dismissal afternoons, and afternoon partnering sessions with our Learning Leaders, teachers will be designing intentional tasks that are focussed on developing subject-specific vocabulary.  Together, we will also be analyzing student work, teacher tasks, and various assessment results that will provide us with specific feedback related to student progress and next steps.  We are also working together with Area II Literacy and Math strategists and using their expertise to build capacity and knowledge in teachers.

A very special thank you to the parent volunteers who came out to our volunteer prop-making day on Saturday, October 26.  It was a very productive day, full of creativity and collaboration.  We will be hosting a second volunteer prop-making day on Saturday, November 9.  We need many volunteers to help us finish making many more props for our big Lunar New Year concert celebration on Tuesday, January 21 at 7 pm.  Please sign up to volunteer if you can at https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30E0F4DAEA923AAFB6-highwood1 as we would really appreciate the help!
