Jane Ball Staff Happenings

Week of June 1- June 5

Nuts and Bolts

Textbook Inventory

Textbook Orders and Check out procedures 2015

The Business Office is working on changing ordering procedures. This will now be done consistent K-12 and in all buildings. Lori is putting together a google doc to gather current inventories of textbooks on hand including workbooks. In addition we will need a list of out dated books to give to the business office.

Check out will be done on June 12 with Pam Kouder. If you will not be there that day, you will need to EMAIL me when you anticipate doing your official check out.

Grades reminder

As we approach the end of the quarter, be sure to check that your grade scales are correct and grades are regularly updated on powerschool. Also be sure that you are communicating with parents about grades so there are no "surprises". Grades are due no later than June 9.

Important Date Reminder

Benchmarks due date was extended until this Friday June 5.


Please remember to update Google DOCS with NWEA data should also be updated as well as benchmarks. In addition you should update grades and any other relevant information.

Summer School

Summer school letters for IREAD and Jumpstart Grades 1-5 went out last week. Please make sure that you return forms promptly to Lori in the office so we can get student counts. My apologies for not getting out the placements yet. Still working on that.

Summer PD conferences

I still have some room for the PUC inquiry Math workshops

Grades K-2 will be offered by Merrillville August 3-7 8am-11

Grades 3-5 will be offered HERE at Jane Ball July 27-30 12-4

Thank you all for keeping the structure in your classrooms and hallways. I have had very little discipline issues last week and that is the result of all of you taking preventative measures to ensure students are doing the right thing.
