Prof. Dev.

Who says teachers don't work in the summer? Besides the numerous days in July and August they work creating a welcoming learning environment for their students, teachers also attended summer professional development at the school in August 2016. The staff analyzed school-wide data, took part in safety trainings, and examined new curricular ideas. In addition, each teacher met one-on-one with Principal Dan McCormick to discuss their professional goals for the school year.
