There is a MANDATORY PD session coming up for all social studies and ELA teachers. Everyone will attend one day between 11/27 and 12/1. This information will be going out to your building principals soon from Nick Stamoulacatos.
The schedule is at the link below:
Schedule for 5th Grade PD Sessions 11/27-12/1
I have tried to not have all teachers from one school attend on the same day so that there is still someone left to help the substitute. However, on the last day the English and SS teachers in departmentalized schools will be attending together because the unit coming up in January is a humanities unit centered around Esperanza Rising and with both social studies and ELA playing a part.
The Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday sessions are at the Center for Excellence. Google Map it. 727 E Washington St, Syracuse, NY 13244
You will need to fill out the paperwork at your building to secure a sub and make sure you have an excused absence.
Coaches are welcome to attend on either Monday or Friday.
Thank You! I look forward to seeing everyone and having a productive day.- Nick
