Reminders/Announcements:

Staff Meeting Assignment: Please read the following article from last month's staff meeting. While reading please jot down any questions or aha moments. We will have a brief discussion about this article. Danielson Engagement - Cluster 4 Please think about how this article ties in the with the discussions we have had regarding Dr. Schlechty's work about student engagement.


PTC Reminders:
  • Schedule conferences with the students in your lit block class
  • Schedule a conference for all students
  • Schedule at least 15 minutes for each conference, you can extend this time if you wish.
  • Special Education Teachers need to schedule conferences for students on your caseload unless you have recently had the student’s IEP meeting.
  • Please leave one 15 minute block open each hour so parents can drop in.
  • Schedule your breaks, including dinner break. (we will be providing dinner both nights.)
  • If a parent cancels or doesn’t show, try to reschedule a face-to-face conference. If you are unable to reschedule a face-to-face conference a phone conference is acceptable.
  • Turn your conference schedule in to Laurie by Friday, February 5th if possible.
  • Please have parents sign-in when they attend the conference, turn the sign-in sheet in to Laurie once all of your conferences are completed.



Field Trip Reminder - When planning a field trip please refer to your field trip checklist which was provided in the CMS notebook at the beginning of the year. If you should have any questions please let me know.

Upcoming Dates - ICAC Internet Safety Assembly - Thursday, February 18th from approximately 8:15-9:15 am in the CMS gymnasium. Patrick will send out a seating chart for the assembly. Budget Deadline - Remember that all requisitions and orders must be submitted no later than Friday, March 18th.

8th grade girls basketball will be playing Powell on Monday, February 8 at 2:30 in the CMS gym. All students and teachers should plan to attend the game. The student body will sit on the west side of the gym. We will have signs up for each grade, but basically starting from the south end we will have the pep band, 6th grade, 7th grade, then 8th grade by the weight room end of the gym. If a grade level decides to shorten class periods they need to make sure they communicate with ALL teachers who are involved with their students (Read 180, Success Math, SPED, etc.).
