Palm Crest Elementary Collaboration Day Summaries - April 20, 2017

Kindergarten: the kinder team met district wide at the DO to write up Everyday Math End of the Year Assessments into ESGI. PCR kinder teachers then met to place textbook orders for next year and gather materials needed to begin one one one EDM assessments next week. 

1st Grade: The First Grade Team reviewed the Everyday Math assessments to determine which common assessments can be used next year, and identified how to pair Common Core State Standards with each test question to analyze data in Illuminate. They updated the Everyday Math ConnectEd Planner and adjusted the pacing calendar for the remainder of the school year. 

2nd Grade: The Second grade team ordered textbooks for the 2017-2018 school year.  We went over upcoming projects and activities for Open House.  We also discussed our upcoming Celebrate America performance.

3rd Grade: The third grade team ordered textbooks for the 2017-18 school year. We reviewed and discussed the minutes from last week’s IPG meeting. We updated the EM planner  for the remainder of the school year. Lastly we finalized the remaining projects that will be shared at Open House. 

4th Grade: The fourth grade team ordered textbooks for the 2017-2018 school year.  We went over upcoming projects and activities for Open House.  We discussed next year’s field trips and dates and possible new ones.

5th Grade: The fifth grade team organized and placed text book orders for the next school year. We planned projects being displayed for each subject for open house. We paced the remainder of Social Studies and Science units. Lastly, the team discussed the state testing progress.

6th Grade: The 6th grade math teachers created an end of the year math test using MIF resources. The ELA teachers organized ELA projects and assignments from the current textbook, in preparation for the newly adopted series. The team also finalized end of the year activities.
The 6th grade language arts/social sciences teachers met to order supplies for next year and to work toward the coming ELA textbook adoption.  We also ordered additional copies of Charlotte Doyle.

Special Education: Resource discussed next year/caseload/numbers. In looking ahead it seems that Mariana would have 7 or 8 kids with 4 or 5 aides. Her room would run as a more modified program from 8-12pm . Lauren would have 23 students k-6 and be more available to collaborate and co teach (perhaps) with gen ed teachers. Lauren will also take the incoming Kinder Pm-er. Mariana will most likely stick to her 9:15/11:30 recess and lunches and Lauren will stick to the 9:55/12:05. Lauren is also looking at services being 4 days a week and having a day for testing and IEPS only so that IEP’s are not random throughout the week… still in consideration at this point.  #28 more days
OT performed a preschool assessment with the PS team, discussed upcoming treatment plans, and worked on upcoming reports. We also collaborated with Odessa.

ELD: ELD teachers and paraprofessionals from all three sites met to discuss the ELD iPad Program and ways to increase efficiency of iPad check out/check in and troubleshooting.  The team also discussed curriculum purchases for 2017-2018, Fountas and Pinnell testing, and strategies to gauge and increase parent satisfaction with the ELD program - such as a wider LCAP Parent Survey, a final trimester newsletter, and attendance at Open House and Back to School Night. Finally, the team discussed ELD testing in 2017-2018.
