Three Weeks to go...

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving Break. I definitely had a fun and relaxing time. It was hard to wake up this morning, but I was glad to see you all were here as well! I guess we toughed it out together.

I know the next three weeks will fly by very quickly, so please make sure you are keeping up with your gradebooks and making sure those students who are not doing well are coming in for opportunities to be successful. We have two more Wednesday Schools left and one Friday Night Lights. Please utilize these as you see fit.

PROGRESS REPORTS

Progress Reports are set to go out Tuesday, December 1. If you need more time, please email Kendyl before 9:00. If there are enough who need the extra day, we will send them home on Wednesday.

Leadership Meeting Thursday

We will have a leadership meeting this Thursday after school. Location to be determined since the library is being used for Science Fair.

Cause Day Thursday

Is this week. Wear your favorite Cause Day shirt with jeans.


It is also picture make-up day.

Remarkable Raven Nominations

Please have these turned into Sara by December 17. As always, the students and parents appreciate the recognition.

Canned Food Drive

Thanks again for encouraging your students to donate. Faces for pieing are still being sought!!!

PLC Meeting in Catie's Room Tuesday After School

Thanks again, Catie, for putting this together.
Wednesday WICORs In One Place!

Great informational resources for you to apply in the classroom.

Treats for You

As we have done in previous years, the counseling and front office staff are providing you with snacks during Exam Week. Hot cider will be provided all week along with the following:

Monday: Staff Party Leftovers

Tuesday: Sweet Treats

Wednesday: Meats and Veggies

Thursday: Salty Treats

Friday: PTA provided lunch


I would also love to have a theme week that week, ideas can be sent to Kendyl and Sara!

Rice's Bragging and Reflection Form

Thanks again for those of you who have joined and added some comments on the Google Classroom I created. Please use this to showcase yourself or another teacher in the building.


There are four "announcements" placed in the classroom which is to be used to brag on yourself, a teacher, or even a student. If you include something about someone, please let them know, so they can see the information. Something to try out as far as giving props and recognition to those who deserve it. The class code is: k37hjt
