Switch Days

In preparation for your grade level switch day next week, please review the lesson plans posted on the u-drive for next week. If you have any questions, please speak with the teacher you have been paired with for this experience. They will be able to provide you with any clarification needed.

Awards Day

With awards days occurring next week, I know you would like time to practice. Next week, all grade levels will eat lunch in their classrooms. Dean Robinson and Mr. Blanton are going to be setting up the gym for everyone on Friday so you can practice with all of the furniture in place. Please do not rearrange the chairs and bleachers.

In preparation for the awards ceremony, please put completed certificates in a folder for each scholar. I will be distributing them to you with your certificates. Scholars will be walking to accept the awards that are provided to you. If, as a grade level, you decide to give another award in addition to the others, these scholars will stand at their seat for recognition and then receive the certificate in the classroom after the ceremony. When it is your turn to present awards to your class, please have the scholars receiving awards line up nearby. Call their names in the order they are lined up in. Call the scholar's name and all of the awards he/she is receiving as they walk toward you. All certificates should be in 1 folder for each scholar. This will help the ceremony to flow smoothly.

Also, create a program to pass out to parents and families as they arrive. If you would like your program printed on color paper, please give it to me (hard copy or electronically) at least 24 hours in advance of your grade level's program to be copied.

End of Year Checkout List

This week, you will be receiving the End of Year Checkout list. All items must be initialed/signed off on prior to you leaving for the summer. You may begin on items as soon as you receive it. If you have questions, please ask.
