We are TNREADY!!!!
We'll take one last swing through classrooms on Monday to ensure that all rooms are ready for testing.
Have a great weekend before the rubber hits the road on Tuesday!
Y Surveys --Don't Forget!!
A reminder to all teachers to fill those out the Y surveys that you received recently regarding your students who attend the Y after school. If you did not receive the survey, Please let Karri Sensabaugh know. Be sure to check your SPAM folder too as the surveys may be hiding there! I also have it on good authority that for each survey filled out they are entered into a drawing to win an amazon gift card !!
Book Study for Next Year
We will be using the books "The Common Core Companion: The standards decoded" for all K-5 ELA teachers and related arts. We will have a different book for grades 3-5 Math teachers. Many of you have this book already. Shasta distributed them earlier this year. Please look for this book and use the link below to alert us if you cannot find it and need it.
Support in Cafeteria
We also need some assistance from IAs during the time that students are getting food from the line. Especially the younger students. We do need one person by the milk refrigerator when the younger students are getting their milk/condiments. This helps speed along the process of students getting their lunch. IAs should be helping the cafeteria at large not just their class. Even if it isn't your class getting food in the line, it is expected that the team of adults in the room at that time divide and support the whole room--not just your class or grade. Thank you all so much for all that you do already, we appreciate your time in the cafeteria daily.
Restorative Questions Cards
- What Happened?
- What were you thinking of at the time?
- What have you thought about since?
- Who has been affected by what you have done? In what way?
- What do you think need you need to do to make things right?
This protocol of questioning applies to teachers and IAs. We want to be constant with all adults.
If anyone needs a new card please let me know. I have plenty to give away.
Marsha, Martha, and I are meeting on Monday to discuss Field Day. We are always looking to make things better. We would like to know your thoughts about what we have done in the past, what we can do better, and what you would like included that isn't there. I left the questions as short answer so you can write anything that you'd like regarding the day based on the question. Lists or incomplete sentences to get the idea across is just fine. We really would just like your thoughts as we plan for another great day for our Lions!
If you could spare 5 min (or less) to answer the three questions to give your input about the day we would appreciate it!
