Quarter 2 Progress Reports will be in teacher boxes by lunch to pass out on Monday, 12/11. Make sure students get a chance to review with teachers, and think of ways that students can try to improve.
What are students going to work on over the break? Even though school is out, we can still keep our students sharp by giving them some independent work or practice. Perhaps a chance to review their upcoming final or a study guide they can begin.
As the holidays approach, our students can become a little anxious so be aware of that in your classrooms. Extra time at home, or a lack of structure (outside of school) can make our students act out in the classroom. See what their plans are over break and even suggest some ideas that they can do around Richmond and San Pablo during those days.
Way to go Ms. Tukeva and Mr. Wilke on your hard work for the upcoming holiday shows and music shows!
Great job Health Academy and Mr. Seeber for putting on an amazing Reverse Job Shadow for our students. It requires a lot of work, time and effort. Thank you to teachers who gave up their classrooms on prep to accommodate too. That is great teamwork!
Thank you to Mr. Gran and our UTR reps who invited the UTR President and Board Members Mr. Panas and Ms. Cuevos to do a school walkthrough. Thank you also to teachers Cushing, Levitt and Stone for giving up their prep to speak on behalf of Richmond teachers.
Awesome job to Mr. Johnson for leading our African American Parent walkthrough this week. They have brought in some great ideas to make our school better.
Great job to Mr. Wilson and CAPA for their resume building workshop they hosted. Way to go!
Thank you to Christina, for keeping our subs going in the front office. Holidays are hard on our sub system, but you help keep us organized.
