What a wonderful week. I will be writing the learning walk report this weekend, and will share it with you all on Monday. Our work lies in continuing to develop these great engaging and challenging tasks for our kids, making sure we are scaffolding so that students can achieve that high level of work. Super good stuff- super proud of my Fine and Performing Arts Fam.
