The Week in Review at VDS

The teachers attended the Professional Development Day at Desert Mirage High School.  They had the opportunity to increase their knowledge with PBIS, Classroom Management Skills, Google Classroom, Restorative Justice Circles, and Transformational Learning.  Thank you to Eddie Simoneau and everyone that helped make the day a successful learning experience. 

Ms. Eyre and Mrs. Marquez-Michel attended the Elementary PBIS Coaches Training on Wednesday.  They continue to enhance their PBIS skills and ensure that VDS is utilizing the tenets of PBIS at the site.

Wednesday afternoon the teachers attended a Staff Meeting and Professional Development.  Mrs. Eyre led the professional development on Quick Writes which incorporated using a Newsela article and annotating the article to produce an effective piece of writing.

Thursday morning Ms. Eyre and Ms. Cardenas attended the Testing Meeting presented by Dr. Mendoza at the District Office.  Then, Ms. Eyre attended the Coaching and Training for Administration which was facilitated by Molly McCabe at Bobby Duke.  

Our AVID Team met on Thursday afternoon to discuss our upcoming Parent Workshop and AVID implementation at the school.

On Friday morning, we had the 2nd Annual VDS Walk a Thon.  It was fantastic to see the students and staff participating in this event which raised funds for the grade levels and the school.  A big thank you to all of the staff that helped make this event such a resounding success.
