Staff Update, 12/9/2019
Glows and Grows
Glows: Your staff meeting responses from our meeting last week were greatly appreciated. The vast majority of the feedback was simple, direct, and easy to implement. Thank you for the time you spent on the task. I got to see a fantastic student goal display in Mrs. Gaba's class last week. Well designed and student friendly! Many thanks to Mrs. Chun-Remick for helping with Class VR. Also, congratulations to Mr. Linnet for wrapping up his first trimester of admin classes! Finally, thanks to Ms. Carnahan for covering the office for me this past Tuesday.
Grows: I really struggled with coming up with something meaningful for this part this week. So I will ask you, if you were to step out of your body for a moment and watch yourself teach, what reflective question would you ask yourself about your instructional practices? About your classroom and classroom culture? About your students?

Attendance, Student and Staff/Reminder!
If you are concerned about a student who is missing school, reach out to the family or to Karen and we will work on making a contact with a family to chat through whatever is going on. Sometimes, a postcard or good news referral for a student missing school goes a long way.
Remember, I track school wide attendance here! One of the best things we can do to find success for our students is to celebrate their presence and to make sure we are the ones leading them each day! Thanks for your commitment.
1. Please let me know if you have submitted a Donors Choose project. Send me the link and I will be sure to include it in my parent newsletter and on our Facebook page.
2. If the project includes furniture, it must be approved by our purchasing department. If you send me the specs ahead of time, I have no issue sending it to the appropriate staff for approval.
3. Send me any photos AFTER the arrival of the project and I will also include that in any parent newsletter/FB/IG post.
