When will Tier 3 for last year's students begin?

We will be begin Tier 3 instruction (8:15-8:45 AM by Mindy and Robyn) on Monday September 12. Classroom teachers will receive an email from Fatima once parents of these students have been notified. RTI will run 5 days a week for built in progress monitoring.


Thursday September 22nd - Tier 2

Individual teachers will meet with RTI Team (10-40 mins) between 8 AM-4:30 PM and will receive coverage with our in house sub, Anne Marie, in order to discuss any students of concern post NWEA reviews and collection of multiple data points (required F&P, optional secondary assessments from classroom.) If you do not have any concerns at that time, you will not meet with the RTI team. Classroom teachers will be expected to begin Tier 2 instruction Monday, September 26 for any students that qualify at September 22nd meeting.


Grade Level RTI Reps

This role will look different moving forward. Grade level reps will be the "go to" during grade level team meetings to help problem solve interventions for students of concern prior to bringing students to the RTI table. Fatima will be meeting with all grade level reps prior to September 22 in order to provide more detailed information. It will not be the responsibility of reps to be present during a teammate's RTI discussion.

Parent Teacher Conferences - 2016

All teachers at BSE are open to schedule parent teacher conferences starting Oct. 10th and ending Oct. 19th. Remember that the doors will be open and covered by myself or Fatima until 7PM on Oct. 17, 18, and 19. Doors MUST remain locked all other days in order to keep our staff and school safe. Please DO NOT wedge any doors open at all during these dates. I would hope all of you would utilize your full schedule as to not have to have all of your meetings the final three days. Plan ahead and keep your life stress free! Have questions, let me know.

Pasta Bowl is here! Bring pasta to yellow bin!

PastaBowl is designed to raise awareness for the 1 in 7 local students that struggle with food insecurity. That number increases to 1 in 4 in some of our buildings. By joining forces, we have been able to raise tens of thousands of pounds of pasta to serve dozens of area food pantries, food banks, and even Second Helpings. In fact, last year we raised enough pasta to provide a serving to every man, woman, and child in Fishers with some left over.

  • Collection 8/31 - 9/9
  • Pasta Pick Up 9/12 - 14

Radios

We have been practicing excellent communication on the radios regarding safety, nurse, sick children, and over flowing toilets. Kudos to all of you. Once our construction settles down and the flow of daily life in classrooms becomes routine let's be mindful of radio traffic. Consider using extensions for non emergencies.



  • We want to ensure safety for all and want people to feel comfortable calling for support.
  • Less radio traffic ensures less interruptions for instruction.


If you need clarification, please ask and when in doubt...use the radio. Teachers should take radios anytime they leave the classroom with students.

Open Dialogue on Bulletin Displays

Thursday, Sep. 1st, 8-8:30am

Carolyn Porzuczek's Bulletin Board

Can You Spot How This Bulletin Has Transformed? Walk by Carolyn's room and check it out! Next, come listen and learn how Carolyn took this original bulletin display and transformed it with student voice, choice, and HSE 21.

Photo ID/Fob Information for Continuing Employees

1. Requests for building access fobs (and their access points/doors) are now handled by each building principal and/or their designee (e.g. Assistant Principal, Head Custodian, Office Manager).


2. Central Office Administration will handle badge and fob access changes for all staff transfers.


3. Lost or damaged ID badge with chip for building access / lost or damaged fobs:

Requests for replacement (cards or fobs) will be handled by Building Administration/Designee. Only replacement fobs will be issued from this point forward. If staff has a broken proximity ID badge with chip for building access, the Building Administration/designee will issue and program a replacement fob. *Reminder, there is a $5.00 fee for issuing a key fob that should be paid to the building treasurer.


4. If you need a replacement photo ID badge (no access chip):

* Let your building principal/designee know.

* The principal/designee will send an email request to the Library Media Specialist at the appropriate high school.

* The reprinted photo ID will then be sent via the pony to the principal/designee who will get the badge to the employee (no charge for photo IDs).

* If a photo is not available in our system, the employee will be contacted to either send an electronic photo or make an appointment depending on designated location noted above.


Only Vendors, Coaches that are not employees of HSE, and YMCA Staff will have chipped badges for door access. These badges will be made at the Administration Office and distributed by the Central Office. Building Administration can expand or narrow access as needed.


Any Questions Regarding the ID/Fob Access process should be directed to:

Sharon Moore smoore@hse.k12.in.us or call extension 3302

Every Opportunity

We have five Dell laptops available for checkout to guest teachers. Mrs. Patrick and Mr. Moore will help guest teachers with login, wifi, and connection to projector.
