Vocabulary Instructional Focus 2015-16

Our new word this week is LETHARGIC. You might also go back and teach UBIQUITOUS from the last week of December as I think it may have gotten very little attention with all of the other things that were happening!

Praises!

Thank you to the Sunshine Committee for the great Christmas lunch before break! It was nice to visit with everyone and enjoy some good food!



Thank you to PTA for providing paper goods and snacks for the lounge! This was their Christmas gift to us so if you see Kathy Strickland (hospitality/teacher appreciation chair), please thank her!


Thank you to Larisa for organizing the Maverick Tree and helping many of our students and their families enjoy a blessed Christmas! I know a lot of you adopted Mavericks on the tree so thank you for helping our kids in this special way!


Welcome to our two student teachers! They are currently in Mrs. Burkhart and Mrs. Hayhurst's rooms.

Reminders!

If you put a student on Istation this week, it will assess them, so please stay off of that program until your assessment window and assigned day!


If you have students on Imagine Learning and did not send me the names before break, please send them asap! I am trying to be sure we are using all of the licenses.


The lab will be closed for the next 3 weeks for assessments (1/11-1/29).


There are enough open slots on the ipad calendar for each classroom teacher to sign up for one more time. Please come see me at your convenience.
