I hope you all had a wonderful long weekend! While your students were home yesterday, teachers engaged in meaningful professional development. In the morning, the Lowell staff focused on differentiating instruction to meet the needs of the diverse learners in their classrooms. It was a productive session! In the afternoon, teachers went off in teams to work on collaborative projects around a variety of topics.
Picture Day is Tuesday, October 16th. Picture Day notices will be sent home this Thursday.
One of the many pieces of assessment data teams look at when grouping students is MAP, which stands for Measures of Academic Progress. MAP is a computerized assessment system that is aligned with state standards. This month, all Lowell school students will take MAP. MAP is given to students three times per year and the data that results from MAP is used to inform students’ instruction.
