Happy Thursday, Wildcat Families!  

The last week has flown by! I have had many moments of joy this week because I have been in many classrooms. One of the best moments was during a Learning Walk on Tuesday. Once a semester, we have a few people that work in the district office come to campus and walk through a few classrooms with a few teachers and other staff here at WRMS. We have a specific protocol that we follow as we debrief and share what we saw/learned, and we categorize our notes and discussion based on the different domains of the TGAP system (teacher evaluation system). This is a great learning experience for those of us that get to participate. It is also a good time to see great things happening in classrooms. My group got to see awesome peer and self assessment of writing, an exciting review game called Trashketball (I scored a three-point shot!), and evidence of incredible learning in a Spanish class. While that was wonderful, I think the best part was taking notes as I listened to our teachers reflect on the time and make suggestions for the future. The whole experience was refreshing.


Now for a few information items:


  • Please remind your Wildcat to come to school each day with a fully charged iPad so that they have it as a tool for their classes!
  • Celebration West Ridge is tomorrow! You saw in the note yesterday that we really hope that everyone gets to enjoy the whole time together. I want to give a shout out to our parents who are making this day happen in advance. A huge thank you to all who are playing a role. I can't wait to see it for the first time!
  • Congrats to our Orchestra kids! All four orchestras received all 1's at contest!
  • I also have to say a tardy thank you to all the parents and teachers that worked together to make this year's Medieval Day a huge success a couple of Fridays ago!  I gradually warmed up to the idea of wearing the crown.
  • If you are wondering about the details of the Bond that will be on the upcoming ballot, you can come learn about it on Monday, 3/11 at 6:00pm here in the WRMS Library.


I believe that is all for now. We have one more week to push through before we get a week long break! This weekend, I hope you can get some rest and hopefully capitalize on some spring like weather. Don't forget that we spring our clocks forward as well.
