    5. An Update From Dr. Keenoy

      1. The school is looking toward facilitation more flexible seating and learning spaces- times have changed and so has the look of the classroom, it has evolved.  Rogers wants it done right. Bob Dillon has written and book and came to the school to tour it and make suggestions. Teachers will need to think about how they can make flexible seating help my students learning.  Almost like a library of things that teachers can check out and then see what they like and then ask for those items for their classrooms. Wants to make learning meaning, relatable and relevant!

      2. Rogers has conducted some benchmark testing called Masteryconnect - and will retake again later in the school year.  

      3. A survey about curric night / open house was sent out and received 114 responses. Most liked having it one night and the transportation.  Most also felt the meet the teacher was long. Later this year there will be a meeting of teachers and parents to come up with plans for next year.
