Flaa's Monday Memo

October 2, 2017

Great Things I Noticed Last Week!

  • Coach Hilliard and Coach Niemczyk teaming up with Ms. Yeatts to implement Partner PE - An inclusive approach to physical education that pairs students with special needs with their general education peers (peer partner). The peer partner demonstrates PE activities and motivates the students with special needs to participate in PE class.

Nuts & Bolts

  • Morning Cafeteria Duty - We need teachers positioned around the cafeteria and near the bathrooms.

  • Early Release - WE NEED TO GET BETTER AT THIS...All early release lists need to be sent to Mrs. Flaa by Sunday. It is important that all teachers know by Monday who will be missing their classes.

  • Social Contracts - Get social contracts hung ASAP.

  • Lead4Ward Strategies - We will be looking to see one of the three strategies Mr. Brown sent you in one or more of your lessons this week. Find strategies below.

  • Administrators will begin setting up Goal Setting conferences.

Capturing Kids Hearts


  • GREETING - How are you greeting your students?

  • GOOD THINGS - Are you promoting a positive, caring atmosphere?

  • DISCIPLINE - When redirecting undesirable behaviors stay in the "questioning" mode. Use the 4 questions during private conversations.

  • LAUNCH - Are you ending class on a positive note? Challenge yourself to launch 2-3 times per week! Make it a habit...It can be powerful!
