 Our school's Instructional Focus  
On Wednesday October 19th, the Instructional Leadership Team revised our Instructional Focus, the new wording is:

Teachers will engage students in writing tasks of varying Depth Of Knowledge levels across all content areas.

While the wording has changed some, we will continue to focus on writing and much of our professional development and team planning around improving writing instruction and student writing products. As you can see by last year's instructional focus (at left), student writing involves a wide range of tasks from lengthy research work to shorter, daily tasks like responses in student notebooks. We welcome your feedback on the instructional focus and please ask your child(ren) to share their written work with you. Andy Tuite, Principal
