Students in grades 3-6 earned a movie party as they met their Accelerated Reader goals.  A big screen movie was shown on the wall in the gym; students brought blankets and pillows and enjoyed the movie.  Students in K-2 watched movies in their individual classrooms.  Popcorn and mini candy treats were served as well.

Teaching Staffs from Cottonwood, Craigmont, Nezperce, and Culdesac attended a workshop on Understanding Assessments as related to the Common Core State Standards.  Our trainer was introduced by Rick Kennedy from the State Department.  January 18 was day one of a two-day series of trainings.  February 18 is the second day where we will begin to design lesson plans aligned to the standards and imbedded into Schoolnet.  Cottonwood, Craigmont, Nezperce, Culdesac and Kamiah have joined together as a consortium of schools and are working on writing a grant to continue training on implementation of the Common Core State Standards.  Along with this is building a system called Schoolnet which will house student assessment data.  Schoolnet will become a warehouse where information will be stored and available to teachers, parents, and students.  Login information will be given to each group.   All of this work is in preparation for a new statewide test that will replace the ISAT.  The Smarter Balanced Assessment will be given to students in 2014-2015.
