School Goals

2014-2015

1.  ELA:  We will continue to focus on our growth of  higher order thinking through the use of text-based evidence during student discussion, both verbal and written.

2.  Math:  We will continue to support our growth in  math reasoning through the student's ability to construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others, during problem-solving activities.

3.  Knowing Your Students:  We will continue to focus on targeted instruction to support knowing all students; SWD, ELL's at-risk and higher ability learners through small group instruction.

4.  Collaborative Professional Learning:  We will continue to be devoted to working with teacher teams in order to support collaborative professional learning, improve teacher effectiveness and bolster teacher leadership.
