There are several things to note about outings. First, the events in red are cancelled due to flooding or low reservations. All that registered for these events have been notified via email that they are cancelled. Details about times and meeting spots have been added below as well as admission fees. Families that would still like to attend can certainly do so. Just encourage them to review the details via the newsletter since reminders went out Wednesday that included the required release forms, where to meet, etc. If you have more questions, refer back to the Eventbrite listing here: https://www.smore.com/gek76 or let me know.
For those attending, reservation sheets for each event need to be printed for sign-in as well as the directives for all outings. They were emailed out Wednesday. Please review ASAP and reach out with questions. Also, go with the flow...while I plan well, outings never go as planned. Be flexible and even creative as needed. :) The highlighted names below were mailed additional releases in case our peeps forget. If they do not arrive on time, please print a few and take them with you. The links are below. Thanks so much for all that you are doing! You’re GREAT!

Required Releases(FYI-no need to print):
If you are not able to get in touch with a student for his/her Welcome Call, please send an email to Liz with the subject line 5+ Unsuccessful Calls.
We are continuing to have new student orientations (8-12 sessions are Mondays at 10 and Wednesdays at 2. K-7 sessions are Tuesdays at 2 and Thursdays at 10.) for new students who are enrolling. We are also having FAST Live Help every day (Monday/Wednesday 3:30 to 5:00 and Tuesday/Thursday 10:30 to 12:00)
All new students who have received a Welcome Call will be moved into your homeroom classes. If you come across a student who was accidentally moved without a Welcome Call, please let me know. New students will be in your homeroom classes and a FASL support room, so we can make sure they complete the Onboarding process.
Please send a link to your homeroom orientations from the first day to Liz. (I just need one per grade level.)
We will open the tracker for referrals September 6th. **We will be able to help with the displaced students sooner.
As we are going through our new LEAP data, we definitely wanted to recognize some of the wonderful things happening! Congratulations to Marjorie Morrow for having the highest LEAP proficiency percentage overall and to all of the 'tested teachers' on the team that have noteworthy proficiency. Way to go!
- Be on the lookout for the Teacher Pulse Check Survey coming to your email (make sure your email has been updated at K12 Training). These surveys measure satisfaction, morale, and time spent on various tasks. Your input and participation is valued.
