Tomorrow, Friday October 4, is a minimum day (TK/K 1:10pm; 1-5 1:25pm) and there are no enrichment classes.
This is one of our three minimum days this year for our school wide focus on Science. Collaboration. With the California Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards, our students need more support in Science Literacy. Our staff is excited about our minimum days for collaboration in science. We have 3 days this year that our Thornhill staff has devoted to professional development. These 3 minimum days total 4.5 hours. Our instructional minutes are approved by the district and state to support this focus. Additionally, we value teacher collaboration as the biggest driver for improving the educational outcomes of students.
In order to support teachers with this focus we will have these Fridays as minimum days: October 4, January 10, and May 1.
Please note this has been on our Konstella calendar, on our google calendar, and in newsletters since the beginning of the school year - so we hope it's not a surprise to you! :)
You can always access our calendar on the Thornhill website.
