Dear Friend of CCSD93,
Get a Front Row Seat in CCSD93's Classes with Week in Review!
I invite you to get a closer look at the awesome teaching and learning opportunities occurring everyday in our classrooms by checking out our Week in Review, which compiles all the week's tweets about CCSD93 from our teachers and community members for you in one space! It gives you a front row seat in our classes to see the unique, innovative, and relevant education CCSD93's teachers are providing our students. We post it every Saturday on our Facebook page, and I'll share them here from time to time. You don't even need a Twitter account to see it. Check out our August 24-31 Week in Review here!
Elementary Parents Invited to Math Info Nights
CCSD93's elementary classrooms are in the process of implementing new resources to better teach mathematics. During the month of September, each CCSD93 elementary school will hold a 30-minute Math Info Night for parents to learn key information about the new resources. CCSD93 curriculum specialists will share details about the changes, tips on how parents can help students with math, and answer parent questions. Please attend! See the image above for details.
