Welcome to November

Welcome back, everyone. I hope that this fall break provided some opportunities to do things as a family that the hectic pace of the school week does not allow. Even if it was something as simply as a few Monopoly games (I know that is what capture the fancy of my family!).

At school, during the course of the last week, we had two days dedicated to a new initiative. The faculty started work on an ambitious project to move our local course curriculum documents into a new computerized format. This "curriculum mapping" process will allow for teachers to have easy access to all the curriculum in the district through a specially designed computer database.

We feel that the end product will provide new accessibility to important information and that this will help improve instruction across the district.

I would like to extend a special thanks to all the teachers who moved so quickly to begin tackling this curriculum mapping task.
