August Staff Meeting
Wednesday, Aug. 28th 2013 at 8:30-11:30am
1590 Harbor Lights Road
Again, I am excited to set sail into a new year with you all! Make sure to read below and fill out the Crewmate form prior to our first staff meeting:)
As a reminder, the PTO will be providing Lunch after the meeting!!
As we continue to focus on "US" and being TOGETHER, we will form ourselves into Crews that are made up of 5-7 people. The Crew will be another way to stay connected and feel connected with Bay Harbor! Everybody needs to feel safe in order to take chances, excel and be productive. This will be another opportunity to build relationships beyond the grade level, etc.

REALLOCATION OF AVAILABLE TECHNOLOGY
Now that there is more technology in 4th grade, the whole school will benefit from the reallocation of the rest of the technology available. I am working with Kathleen to figure out the amounts of available technology and will finalize classroom numbers asap so that you know what you will have for planning purposes.

Staff Meetings and PD
By having two shorter meetings a month it gives us the ability to be more focused on a minimal amount of topics thus accomplishing more and feeling better about the time spent.
5th- 7:40 (quick "meeting")
19th- 3:30- 4:15
13th- 3:15******** Due to conferences on the 20th
Additional PD opportunities and staff will be available for you to grow your knowledge and skills as we progress through the Digital Transformation, Focus on Literacy (Guided Reading), and the I/E block.
Here is the detailed schedule:
The District has set the following weeks as the timeline to do our "data day".

Recess Before Lunch
We will continue to work out details even into the first weeks of the year and make any necessary adjustments to make this successful for our students and our school. Teachers responsibility will be to walk the students to recess and then pick them up at the Lunch Room.
