September 16-20


Good morning,

I hope everyone had a great weekend. The weeks seem to be flying by quickly. It's hard to believe that interims will be going home this week. Please make sure to submit your grades by Tuesday. Vicki shouldn't have to pull your grades.

Don't forget to go over how to do a safety drill with your students today.

I have a attached a meeting template you can use for your team meetings. I would like to see your notes weekly.

Let me know when you are ready to go over your professional growth plan. We should try to have them completed by the end of September since observations will begin in October.

Have a great week!

Aim High and Dream Big!!
