WELC Board Presentation

Our presentation to the Board will happen on Tuesday, June 2nd. Our committee (Sarah, Jamie, Missy & Stacie) met last week and have decided to gather pictures and data as a "year in review" type of presentation.

Please let me know if you can assist with any of the following (some of you I am requesting specific information from):

  • Are there any "before" pictures of Washington? Building, classroom, etc. before things got moved in? If so, please let me know!
  • PALS fall & spring data (Sandy)
  • Birth-3 data (number of TPC meetings & evaluations)-Missy
  • Screening data (number of children screened per month; number of referrals from screenings; number qualified for SPED)-Renee
  • Look through your classroom pictures and start a folder that includes highlights from happenings throughout the year.
  • List of parent activities/trainings (library, OT/PT, bedtime routines, others?) Are there any pictures of these? Those that took the lead on each of these, could you write up a description and give attendance numbers, etc.?

We are going to work on a slide show presentation that includes pictures & graphs. Sarah is taking the lead on this but all of us need to assist with the leg work to get these items together.

If you have other ideas, please let me know!


For those of you evaluated by me using the EP system, I will be setting up an individual meeting with you in the next few weeks. I am scheduled to meet with the Administration on Wednesday, June 3rd to review individual EP's. I am meeting with Steve this week to get a better idea of what is expected at this meeting and will send you more information to assist your preparation.

To Do!

  • Please remember to begin looking through and sorting the shared materials area. What if we made three piles: keep, donate to 4K, donate to families?
