Looking for resources to increase your students’ disciplinary literacy? You can probably find some great books in the library, and if you can’t, you could give me some suggestions for ordering. We’ve moved the entire nonfiction collection. Stop by and ask me to show you the sections relevant to your classes.
There are some excellent webinars being offered over the next few months. You can also search through recorded webinars on topics that interest you. Let me know if you need your account login details.
Semester 2 can be viewed in the MS Private Calendar.
You can use this form to let the MSALT2 students know what teacher announcements you would like to make. Please share this information before Thursday at 3:30pm each week so they have time to plan for the announcements.
This is where you can submit anything that you would like to be added to the Tiger Tales / WAG / SWAG.
This link has the final chaperone schedule for SY1819. We have also sent calendar invites to the chaperones involved in every event for the respective date and time.
A fabulous week last week for both learning and AQI! Thanks to all those that helped out supporting classes while some staff were in workshops here or off campus. This is an important aspect of good schools, it does require us to be more flexible to ensure learning is minimally impacted, I appreciate everyone's flexibility. We have more opportunities in the coming weeks please keep an eye on the calendar. I will be away on Friday this week, I’ll communicate point people later in the week.
