Odds and Ends

*TOY voting - All ballots are due to the box in the office by 4:30 pm TODAY. Our 2016 TOY will be announced at the staff meeting on Friday, February 12th.


UPDATED: BAS Information- The BAS testing window for K-4 has been moved to mid 4th quarter, exact dates will be communicated soon. The 5th grade window has remained February 16 - March 10. This change was made in order to provide year long data, as well as reading level information to start the year. While it is not required to give the BAS at this time, there may be some that you want additional information for report cards. Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can help in any way.


Analyzing ECOs- You got off to a great start analyzing the reading ECOs during the December and January PD days. This work should now continue in your PLCS. You can structure it however you'd like (ex. work on one ECO every other week, one a month until the end of the school year). You will want to complete analyzing the reading ECOs this year, as we will pick up with writing next year. There are additional yellow organizers by the mailboxes in the copy room. Please let me know if I can assist in any way.


February 12th Early Release - In order to ease printing the early release specials/party/lunch schedule will come in a follow-up email. PD will begin at 1:45 in the UV library for all classroom teachers, librarians, and SSD staff. This will be our first exposure to the new writing materials, so it is important that everyone be there. Specials teachers will have PD arranged by their content facilitator.
