What do teachers do on a Saturday in February? Kindergarten through second grade teachers, along with Title I teachers, throughout Pocahontas County worked together to learn about a new professional learning protocol - The Lesson Study Model. Dr. Andrea Lemon, West Virginia Department of Education, facilitated the learning as the grade level groups established norms, brainstormed focus areas, as well as the case pupils. We are excited to move to this approach of professional learning. This opportunity is funded through a grant awarded from the West Virginia Public Education Collaborative (WVPEC) and the Claude Worthington Benedum Foundation.

We need your help! If your child did not get their textbooks returned at the end of last year, we need them to bring them back to school as soon as possible. We do not need the reading books since we were required to adopt new materials this year. You may return them to the school that is closest to your home if that would help. Thank you for helping us save valuable resources.
