No Staff Meeting on Monday

This is a super busy month, and there is not any pressing information that cannot wait. For these reasons, we are not having an October staff meeting.

A heads up about a few things:

  • Bingo Night is Friday, November 2 @ Goodson. If you are interested in calling a game (there are 10), please let me know.
  • Spring Creek Spirit Night is November 7. The money raised from this goes straight to our school. Please consider creating a friendly competition that will encourage the students to show up. In the past, we've had the top 2 classes on a grade level get to play kickball. Motivating the students is the key to getting the kids to come out. Sally will be sending out information on volunteering to serve rolls. We want to be sure to allow spots for all grade levels, so please be considerate when signing up. There are about 15-18 slots.
  • We will have Friendsgiving again. On Monday, November 12, everyone will enjoy a true Thanksgiving buffet. Turkey, gravy and rolls will be provided. The sides and desserts will be where the "friends" come in. A sign-up will be sent out to everyone to participate where they choose.
  • The PBIS committee is meeting this week. Once we've finalized the details of our first school store, I will send out information about how this will work. We appreciate your flexibility and understanding as we implement this new idea.

Book Character Parade & Staff Trick-or-Treating

Please be sure you've read the Rocket Register and are aware of the details for this. The parade is a whole-school event this year. We are looking forward to a fun morning of costumes. Although this is Halloween, students and staff should be dressed in book character costumes. Staff should not wear anything with "Halloween" written on it, nor ghosts or witch-type designs during "Halloween Season".

However, the A-team is having "trick or treating" for all of you throughout the day. We'll have snacks in each of our offices. You will start in my office where you'll receive snacks and participate in a fun Halloween game that will give your team the chance to win prizes. Your team may show up at one of the following times:









Please let us know if your team needs to come at a different time. By having these set times, our staff that are not assigned to a grade level are able to choose a time when others are coming.

We are looking forward to a fun-filled day!

Goal Setting

Staff required to compete goal setting will receive a link to a sign up genius from your appraiser within the next few days. The AP's reviewed the GSG with everyone at the last grade level meeting. You will have 2 goals, and all of this should be ready when you come to your meeting.

Pineapple Chart

Thank you to everyone who has volunteered to have guests in their classrooms. I know it is a busy month, but keep the invites coming. We will have a drawing at the end of this month among all who volunteered to host and all who took time to observe. Fun shirts for Wednesdays with jeans will be the prize! If you have tickets to put in the drawing, please drop them off in my office (I'll have a jar for them). If you volunteered either way and did not receive tickets for the drawing, please see me to get them. Each host should receive 2 tickets, and each observer should receive 1 ticket.
