No school for students on January 14. Friday is a Professional Development Day for all teachers . To prepare for our K-5th grade Professional Learning Day on January 14, teachers had to complete work prior to this day which involved reading, watching training videos, learning how to assess student phonological knowledge, then assessing three students. The power of our professional learning this year through LETRS is that we are all learning together for the benefit of students.
Sra Salmeron's classes celebrated Three Kings Day. The day before, they made paper shoes, managed to find grass for the camels and left them under our Christmas tree. On Three Kings Day, the grass was gone and instead they got a surprise. They also made wise men from toilet paper rolls. It’s good to learn new traditions and celebrate diversity.
