Upcoming....

Important events, deadlines, etc...

* Printers: Please be considerate when printing to room 213. This is a classroom and it can be disruptive to have students/staff in and out of the room to collect printed items.

Please also be considerate when printing from home, especially over a weekend. We often have to clear jams, add paper etc. due to an abundance of printer jobs sent from home. The production center is very fast and can be accessed easily via the WWPS website. Please see me with any questions.


*Mini Bus Students should all be dismissed promptly when they are called. Please be sure to remind students whom may not be supervised to the mini bus dismissal location.


*RTI: The RTI team will hold our 2nd meeting this week. We look forward to reviewing any referrals that you may have already submitted.


*Digital Citizenship Week: October 18th-24th: I will be sending home a hand-out for families about Digital Citizenship. The following link provides a great classroom resource for the week. http://theglobalreadaloud.com/
