Staff at San Cayetano School continue to focus on providing explicit instruction in mathematics with carefully designed lessons that match the eight required shifts of mathematical practices. This includes a gradual release of responsibility to students who must be able to articulate their math reasoning in order to achieve true mastery. This school year we are excited to have the support of the SWUN Math program in grades TK-8 that works in partnership with all stakeholders in educating students, parents, teachers and administrators. A powerful part of that support includes onsite coaching.

On Friday September 14, Fillmore Unified School District Technology Department and Ed Services Coordinator Amber Henry provided training to teachers and students in grades K-2 on use of I-pads, its features and how to take care of them.  San Cayetano staff is thrilled that Kindergartners, 1st and 2nd grade students are getting their hands on iPads…not just a cool new toy but rather a powerful and versatile tool with a multitude of applications, with educational uses that will have a positive impact on teaching and learning.
