Re: November Review
Here is an overview of the key activities we worked on in relation to teaching and learning this month.
Monday’s: We had a very good month of professional development this month. We again worked closely with the middle school on Common Core and the development of challenging tasks. We also had a guest speaker from USNR. We did have one Monday for department collaboration as well.
Other information: Dan organized a wonderful Veterans Day assembly at the beginning of the month which was exceptionally well received by staff and students. I am hopeful you got a chance to see the play “Wind in the Willow.” It was very well done and Heather Gordon did an outstanding job as the director. Our school did participate in the annual Rotary Food Drive, but alas, we once again were outdone by the Intermediate school. I should also note that we had another round of FF&E meetings with Suz this month and I know that staff are really starting to get excited for the opening of the new high school. We have placed teachers in their classrooms (via a map) and are finalizing furniture requests.
I also wanted to note Mark Knudson from Lewis River Academy received his National Board Certification this month and I could not be more pleased and proud of Mark for his efforts and the earning of this prestigious distinction.
All is all it was a good productive month at WoodlandHigh School.
