One full week down, and the rest of the year to go.
News: Tentative School Makeup Dates for the strike
2e Support Group Meeting: The first 2015/16 meeting is this coming Monday 10/12 in the Lincoln High School library in Wallingford from 7-9PM.
"This first meeting will be wide open for your beginning-of-the-year questions and concerns. Whether you are new to the group or an old timer, come and share your experiences with other parents going through the same things. We are one another’s experts! Share your frustrations, learn new things, and bring a sense of humor—it always helps. :-) If we have a large number of attendees we can break out into groups (by age or by area of difficulty, such as ADHD, learning disabilities, autism spectrum, etc) to compare notes."
The first HCC Advisory Committee is scheduled for 6:30-8PM Tue. 10/6 at Washington Middle School. I'm looking for anyone who is willing to go in the future and write up a post on what occurs.
Math: I sent a mail to Anna Box the head of the Math dept. inquiring about 6th grade placement. The new policy is currently being drafted and sent around to the principals with the expectation it will be announced in a month or two. I'll try to stay on top of this and open a thread when real details come out.
Reminder: The deadline for Advanced Learning Evaluation is coming up in only a few weeks (10/8) SPS Advanced Learning. I'll also open a thread discussing evaluation etc. some time soon.
Middle School Curriculum Project. I have the following page http://discussapp.blogspot.com/p/middle-school-curriculum-project.html permanently on the top of the blog. Now that middle school is starting, if you're interesting in documenting and improving the curriculum please log what your students are doing there.
What's on your minds?
