Teacher Appreciation Week begins Monday, May8th. :-)
Please plan to meet with me Tuesday, at 3:15 in the library.
We need a lot of help in our reading garden. In lieu of a meeting for those of you not on the spelling committee, please plan to complete the task(s) assigned to you next week. You can work in the garden at any time next week. Because we all love the garden area, let's all help bring it back to life. Gardening tasks are below:
K5: Put out pine needles. Begin in the reading area with the big chair. If you have enough left over, move to vegetable area.
1st: Pine needles around trees and bird bath area
2nd and Jane: Shovel sand off of walkway, clean and rake sand in fossil dig area, plant flowers in black pot.
3rd and Beth: Plant flowers in the SCRegions area.
4th: Put soil in vegetable boxes and plant vegetables in boxes
5th: Clean/rake Zen Garden sand area, plant vegetables in cages.
Relateds: Weed corner area near door leading to 2nd grade hallway and spray path with white stones with Roundup
Special Ed.: Pull Weeds
Admin.: Purchase materials, cut grass, and place pine needles around bird bath area
Thank you for all of your help with this area. I hope you will make plans to eat lunch outside and read to your students in this area after we get it all cleaned up. :-)
Lots to Do!
1. Please update your SLO with ending levels/scores as you finish. We will meet individually to discuss your SLO. I will send you an email with your meeting date and time.
2. Continue completing your profile cards. Extra profile cards are in the conference room if you need them. Please pick up the number you need from there.
3. Because you know your students so well along with their levels, abilities, behaviors, etc., please work with your grade level to organize your profile cards into groups. The number of groups are below:
In fourth and fifth grades, I would like for you to place all students with IEP's and all of your LAUNCH students into one group. Let me know if you have questions. Please have your cards in groups to me by May 30th.
