 Our school's Instructional Focus
 
This year we have focused much of our professional development and team planning around improving writing instruction and student writing products. As you can see by our 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.
