Weekly Message #7-26

Sun, beautiful sun!  Finally we have some.  Although it is not very warm.  I visited the Grade 7’s and parents at the Superstore Purdy’s chocolate sale this morning and my ears felt like icicles in the short time I was there.  Sales were brisk and the students were working hard to make money for their Grad!  So grateful to the PAC for their support of this event.  There are a couple of PAC events this week.  You are always welcome to join us at the PAC meeting on Tuesday night.  Also, we will be having our second free PAC movie afterschool on Wednesday.  Staff would be very welcome to watch “The Secret Life of Pets” and to help with supervision of students!

We welcome Emelyn Tolentino who will be starting her SSA practicum at Moberly this week.  Her supervisor is Jen Erickson so looking forward to seeing her as well!

We are pleased to receive a grant from the Sheila Tripp Foundation to pay part of the cost for this Friday’s performance of Tapco.

At Tuesday’s staff meeting, I will provide you with some updates on Reporting.  I have run off three documents for each teacher.  The links to these documents are here:

Supporting the Self-Assessment and Reporting of Core Competencies is a draft resource to support teachers in meeting the requirements of the Students Progress Report Order regarding student self-assessment of the Core Competencies

Core Competencies Posters is a series of seven posters that feature the facets of the Core Competencies and “I” statements within each facet which may be helpful for students to self-assess their growth

Educator Update: Classroom Assessment provides information related to classroom assessment, including current status and next steps
