1/30 9:25 Coffee with the Principal: Advanced Pathways in Mathematics

Coffee with the Principal:
Advanced Pathways in Mathematics
Monday, January 30, 2017
9:25 - 10:00 AM
Teach Library

Dear Teach Parents,

Just a reminder to join me for Coffee with the Principal on Monday, January 30th at 9:25. Drop off your child and pop into our library for a 30 minute meet and greet. 

Our topic this month, "Advanced Pathways in Mathematics," was chosen by our Site Council. Many parents have had questions about possible pathways to advanced mathematics in grades 7-12. I'll share the San Luis Coastal mathematics pathways and answer any questions parents might have about preparing students for college and career-ready mathematics. 

There has been an additional request to share information about Advanced Pathways in English Language Arts, too. 

Please RSVP if you plan to attend so we can plan for refreshments.

I look forward to seeing you Monday,

Darla Batistic,
