What a FABULOUS week! Thank you for your participation in our Innovator's Mindset activities and for the incredible learning experiences you have provided our children. Twitter was on fire this week with excellence! THANK YOU for telling the story of Lee!
DID YOU KNOW
- Anthony Hill emailed to congratulate each of us on the State School of Character Honor? YAY! THANK YOU for the parts you have played in this recognition!
- that we will observe the posted calendar for the 2017-2018 school year? The timeframe for communication for the proposed "new calendar" would not have been favorable. Inservice week is August 14-18.
- if you attend CAST on February 18, we will pay for your registration and grant you Flex Time for attending? Let me know, by Monday, if you are interested in attending.
Please plan on joining us for staff meeting on Wednesday. All staff needs to attend as we learn hands only CPR and review TELPAS. We will provide you with healthy snacks and water for this meeting in celebration of the #communitychallenge. Please wear your warm ups if you like! Keep posting to @itstime #communitychallenge #LWnCoppell to earn the city of Coppell points. Thanks for your participation

I got an email from Dr. Denison that we can expect some visits from Lewisville, IBM, and Apple to see the app in action. Please know, I recognize there have been some hiccups, but that our pilot of this app will help them move forward in bringing enhancements to the app. Please continue to use it and let us know what problems are still arising.
In addition to our Element and Enlight work, we have an Apple Trainer who will be coming to Lee to support our CBL work. He will be meeting with four staff members on February 20 and 21. (These are our research folks). We need feedback from you because this trainer will be returning for at least two more 3 day visits. He can continue to work with our research designers OR if you feel like you would like additional support in CBL, he can work with YOU. Maybe you have other ideas of ways we could use CBL help. Please email or visit with me so that we can take advantage of having this expert on campus. (see staff calendar to see when Nelson Taylor will be here)
WEEKLY WALKTHROUGH FOCUS
We move to a new Domain and Dimension this week. We will transition to "Monitoring and Adjusting" instruction. The image below describes how we will look for evidence in our walkthroughs. We will be looking for learner input, academic feedback (not procedural), questioning, and how you keep learners engaged.
