This Week's Memories
Urban Assembly SEL Symposium. On Friday, Jen JR, Jen C, and Lauren presented the work we've done this year around Social Emotional Learning. Jen C & Lauren, along with 6th graders Suke, Fatou, and Shanice shared our SEL systems and structures and led the audience through a sample School Connect activity called Cross the Line. Jen JR led an afternoon panel discussing how to use the DESSA to set IEP counseling and monitor progress throughout the year. People from around the country joined the symposium to learn about the work we are doing with the Urban Assembly, and our team and students represented beautifully! Nicely done!!
To Do's for this Week
[Tuesday, 30MAY17] Senior Awards Night! This Tuesday is our Annual Senior Awards Night. Please join us at 5:30 in the gym to celebrate their wonderful achievements!
[Thursday, 01JUN17] June is Here! This Thursday is June 1st. We've officially reached the last month of school. Your hard work and perseverance throughout the year have brought you and your students to this point. We have a few days left before High School Final exams and a couple of weeks before Middle School Final exams. Use this time to make your final preparations and judgments with students. You should make it a point to meet with all your students to provide them with end-of-the-year feedback on their growth and progress. Make sure to prioritize students who will not pass your course. They need to hear from you in-person (1) that they are failing, and (2) why they have not yet mastered the grade standards for your subject. Please make sure to complete all of these conferences (at the very least, meet with all potentially failing students) prior to final exams.
