This week we spent dedicated time analyzing each grade level's fall NWEA, Acadience, and IXL data. During these meetings, our reading teacher, math interventionist, the district's math coach, dean, counselor, and I collaborated on ways to improve TIER 1 instruction. Daily formative assessments coupled with our fall data help to drive instruction and group students in both ELA and mathematics. Additionally, every teacher utilizes a workshop-style approach which allows for the ability to create intentional, specific skill-level work.
Today, Delta Center students celebrated and participated in the Fun Run; the kids had a blast during this event! Thank you to those who pledged to help support our students, those who helped run this event, and to the crowd cheering our students on as they ran through the obstacle course and listened to fun music. Students have earned multiple rewards and are looking forward to spraying silly string at our teachers. The money from this fundraiser goes to our PTO and will help fund assemblies, field trips, and much more. We love our PTO!

Halloween is just around the corner, the schedule for those participating in the Halloween festivities will be on Tuesday, October 31st. Your child's teacher will communicate what time their respective shindig is along with if they need volunteers for their celebration. Volunteers must be approved through our volunteer system to help facilitate the parties. At 2:45 we will have our building Halloween parade. Our intent is to parade outside around the building (weather permitting of course). If the weather is crummy, parents will be able to come to the gymnasium and we will parade through the inside of the building. Parents may sign out their student after the parade if so desired.
To keep it fun for all, here are some guidelines that we would like you to consider when selecting an appropriate costume for the Halloween celebration.
Masks may be worn, but excessive make-up is discouraged due to the time and assistance needed to apply it
Costumes promoting violence, blood and gore, and indecency are not allowed. Specific examples are Zombie-like costumes
Costumes depicting patriotism and/or patriotic characters are encouraged
Costumes promoting what children want to be when they grow up are encouraged
Be original, creative, and/or funny, remember we are Delta Center Stars
We welcome volunteers! We need extra help during lunch and recess. If you are interested in working with students during the school day or chaperoning field trips, please complete the volunteer application here.
Our next PTO Meeting will be Wednesday, October 11th at 7:00 p.m. in our Media Center.
Please be kind during drop off and pick up and follow the procedures we’ve shared to help keep our students safe. Thank you.
As always, if you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.
