What do we do on a Professional Development Day?

Three times a year, our district gives students the day off and the teachers an opportunity to grow and learn professionally.  On Monday, January 4, when the kids had no school, the teachers met together for a whole lot of learning!

First, all of the teachers in the district met together and were inspired by our own Placer County Teacher of the Year, Kim Gerould.

Then, they had a choice of break out sessions to attend, with topics such as supporting our English learning students, math number talks, Google Apps for classrooms, scoring writing assessments, engaging students, comprehension strategies, science standards, scoring math assessments, Love and Logic in the classroom, the science of learning, Common Core resources and more!

Finally, teachers met together by grade level to work on report card standards and assessments. 

All of this time was incredibly valuable, helping us maintain state and district standards, keep up to date on current techniques, and share their best ideas with one another.

What's in a

school lunch?

While it is easy for a parent to navigate our monthly menu entree choices, often parents have no idea what's in our fresh garden bar.

On a daily basis we stock a beautiful and nutritious display of fruits and vegetables from which our hot lunch participants can fill their plates.  We serve a rotation of strawberries, bananas, raspberries, kiwis, edamame, cauliflower, broccoli, locally grown mandarins, and more!  These healthy offerings provide the students with high quality eating experiences in a school lunch.  

Servers Nancy and Linda spend time decorating the serving area with seasonal displays as well as working hard to know each child by name.  We are glad to have them on our campus and our kids benefit from their hard work and dedication.

CONGRATULATIONS GREENHILLS!

Third year in a row!  2011, 2012 and 2013!

Dear Principal Towne,

On behalf of California Business for Education Excellence, I write to congratulate you on the outstanding success your school has made in raising student academic achievement.  After an extensive analysis of student achievement data for every public school in California, your school stood well above the rest in getting your students to grade level proficiency and beyond.

It is for that reason we have named you a California Business for Education Excellence Honor Roll School for 2013.

The list of Honor Roll schools continues to grow thanks to the hard work and effective practices of thousands of excellent principals, teachers and support personnel in our public schools. 

This is a testament to the relentless focus on results for students that you, your staff and your peers have shown over the years.  It is also a strong statement about how success is spreading in public schools across the state.

 As an Honor Roll school you will be recognized in local and state media as well as events across the state.  Your success story will provide hope and direction for many other public schools -- that all students can reach high levels of academic achievement.  

Our heartfelt congratulations and thank you for a job well done.  We look forward to telling your story and promoting your success.

 Sincerely,

James S. Lanich, Ph.D.

President
