May 2-6, 2016
We are entering the final days and students are beginning to feel the anxiety of having summer off. Some are looking forward to a break from school to relax and play, but there are others that feel safest here at school. Please keep in mind that for them, acting out is their way of expressing the panic of a summer where there might not be food and no loving supervision. It seems the opposite of what you would expect, but they are struggling with letting go.
Give them some extra patience and love in the last few days. You all have cared for them and taught them so much, and whether they express it or not, they are thankful for you.
I'm excited to see the next chapter of her life and all that she accomplishes.
Thank you to everyone for showering our amazing ladies in the office with balloons, flowers, food, cards, and hugs. They are so deserving of their special day.
Thank you to our wonderful teachers. This week we take time to appreciate you and all your hard work. Monday, please stop by the lounge for some pancakes from 7:45-8:30. We have more exciting ways we are appreciating our teachers. Check out the flyer below!

All running records should be complete for all students. Scores should be entered on the Google Drive spreadsheet by Friday, May 13th. Please make sure all running record documents are placed in a pocket of their green folder.
All interventions documents should be placed in a pocket of their green folder as well. If you have a student seeing an interventionist please print out their progress monitoring graph. Cori and Bonnie can help you find this if needed.
Purple wildcat cards should be complete and in the green folder.
Please have students complete a writing sample in letter format for their teacher next year and include that in the green folder as well.
If you have a student's DRA folder that can just go inside the green folder. Don't worry about taking the forms out of this folder.
These folders are due in the office at check out and all documents need to be inside and complete before checking out. We'd be happy to look through folders if you'd like to make sure you have included everything before checking out.
