Domain 2

  • Additional PLC time and professional development that will focus on more common planning, the use of common formative assessments, and analysis of data to better meet students’ needs and create a protocol to evaluate the effectiveness of the PLCs.

Domain #3

  • To continue the professional development in the area of equity and diversity to better understand and teach our students and to reach and partner with the entire school parent community.

Domain #4

  • To create an updated strategic plan that will include a salary plan, technology plan, facilities plan, and stewardship monitoring.

We started working in the Technology Plan by gathering parent input on the questions:

  • Are there any other types of technology devices you would like to see your child use at St. Philomena School? If so, which ones.

  • What would you like your child to create using technology in addition to presentation slides, videos and coding opportunities?

  • What do you need as a parent when it comes to technology education to help your child or to protect your child?

  • What is a concern you have when it comes to your child’s use of technology?

Our next PEP Club Meeting is Wednesday, April 19th, 2023. There is a Parent Contract

meeting on Wednesday, March 8th at 7:00 PM.
