Sweeny Blueprint

Week of February 1st

My Teacher Will be Proud of Me!

Many of you may have read the piece on social media lately about having your learners leave notes for you when you are absent. Today I interviewed a Sweeny Leader about why she thinks this is impactful for the teacher and the classroom. Check it out!

MOY Data

Your reading (updated 1-5 via running records) and Kindergarten (via F and Ps) and writing benchmark data needs to be inputted into SIS ASAP. Remember you do not have to enter into the spreadsheet any longer ONLY SIS. Please send Mr. Lockmiller an email when your data has been entered.

MAP Testing

MAP Testing will be here sooner than we know it. To make sure our students are prepared be sure to give them practice time with the online tools. Click HERE for the link. Schedule time periodically in the computer lab or on Chromebooks if your classroom has them.

Souper Bowl-Who Wants to have a PARTY??

January 25-February 3 each building has been challenged by People Helping People of Republic to host a "Souper Bowl" aka a soup drive contest between classes! The class that brings in the highest number of packaged soups in each building will be awarded with Super Bowl-type snacks on Friday, February 5.

Teachers, please plan to collect the packaged soups in a box/crate with your name labeled on it. At the end of the day on February 3 please bring your box to the location instructed by your building leadership to be counted and collected on February 4. Winners will be announced that day so that snacks can be provided for the classroom in each building who collects the most.

While all canned goods are awesome to have, there's a real shortage of canned soup so please emphasize to your students the hope is to collect soups. Please begin communicating this to your students and families! Thank you!
