What's going on in the CCS Jr. High Science Lab? Students are testing their reaction rates! When learning about the brain, brain regions and functions, students are challenged to drop a ruler in between their partner's hand to see how fast they catch it. Then the students drop the ruler and catch it themselves and compare the differences. Try it with a friend and see who has a better reaction rate!
CCS Read-A-Thon ends THIS Friday!!!! There is still time to participate by registering today at https://www.read-a-thon.com/readers/r/tdHFpz
How do teachers make sure they are at the top of their instructional game in the classroom? They attend monthly Professional Development Parties, of course! Our teachers gathered last week to add Cooperative Learning Strategies to their instructional toolbox. Cooperative Learning encourages teachers to structure classes into groups to foster communication and work together in smaller units. Teachers can strategically form groups around students with varying skill levels and learning styles to promote collaboration, communication, and social skills. Our teachers worked in teams to teach their peers about a cooperative learning strategy and determined how these strategies could be used across multiple grade levels and content areas. These strategies will give our students the opportunity to teach each other. According to Dr. William Glasser’s Learning Pyramid, we retain 90% of what we teach others! When our teachers grow, our students grow! Way to go, CCS Teacher Team!

The Carencro Catholic leadership team would like to start highlighting the various ways our teachers go above and beyond when it comes to academic instruction! Our teachers spend countless hours planning for their content-rich daily lessons. Daily lessons are standard focused, data-driven, and delivered by utilizing instructional strategies to promote student-led learning and engagement. We are so excited to share with all of you a behind-the-scenes look at the instructional standards our teachers set in their classrooms! Mrs. Christina Dupuis is our self-contained 4th-grade teacher. When our Instructional Coach visited Mrs. Christina’s classroom this week, the first thing that caught her attention was the content-rich bulletin boards lining the walls. These bulletin boards were intentionally created to reflect the current standards and skills being taught in each subject area. All visitors to Mrs. Christina’s classroom will be able to see that in Math they are learning place value and in Reading, they are learning about the structure of a story and how to summarize the main events in a story. Those who will benefit the most from content-rich bulletin boards lining the walls are her students! Our 4th-graders walk into class every day surrounded by gentle reminders of past learning, future learning, and how the two impact each other. Way to go, Mrs. Christina!
