Early Dismissal Monday, November 18, 2013
Early Dismissal on Monday, November 18!
The early dismissals allow our teachers to work together in teams to address student learning. These teams are referred to as Learning Improvement Teams (LITs) and will be the focus of school goals this year. An abundance of research shows that when teachers work collaboratively, student learning improves as the specific needs of students at our school are addressed.
Should you have any questions or concerns about the LITs, please do not hesitate to contact your local school. We look forward to an exciting year of learning together!
Upcoming Early Dismissal Days:
December 2, 16
February 10, 24
