Announcements

Please do not place money in the office mailboxes. If you receive cafeteria money please place it in the brown lock box in the cafeteria window. Any other received money should be delivered directly to the appropriate individual. Thank you!


Please do not turn off the fan to the heating system in your classroom. This puts your classroom into night mode which causes it to steadily pump hot water to your classroom generating more heat. The heating system is designed to circulate outside air per the state requirements and do not work properly when they are not properly adjusted. A problem in one room impacts other rooms. Your thermostat is your best control, but keep in mind that it takes the thermostat time to adjust the temperature, it is not immediate. If you are having a problem with the heat in your classroom please contact Martin. He has software to diagnose the problem.


Bob will be leaving early on 3/24 therefore the building will close at 6:00 pm.


Thank you to everyone for your flexibility, patience, and cooperation during PARCC testing. We are in our last week of testing. Some students have sections to make up and will be combined with other grades this week when possible. If you remember students can be combined as long as directions and times are the same. I will let you know if you will be having any makeup students in your room.


Just a reminder that magnets are not good around technology. Please do not use magnets on or around your computer or your SMARTboard.

Professional development money is running low. Please be very selective when requesting professional development and please do not be surprised if it is denied.


Now is a good time to send out a few positive parent communications.
