Important Updates/Reminders:

  • Retention - If you are considering retention for ANY STUDENT, please email Carla to set up a time to meet this week. The date for turning in retentions to the district level has been moved up.




  • TESTING DRY RUN: We will have a Reading EOG Dry Run at 7:55 after announcements on Thursday, May 23rd. ALL small group testing administrators--pick up your kids for the reading EOG and bring them to your testing location for the Reading EOG day. Introduce yourself and tell the students this is where they will take the EOG. ALL EOG LOG IN SUPPORT STAFF - first report to your assigned teacher to discuss your log in plan for the test on Friday. Then, if you are administering a reading EOG small group too, pick up your students to bring them to their testing location. Due to morning duties and bus drivers, we need all hands on deck and some people will have double EOG responsibilities. No proctors are needed for this dry run day. 5th Grade Specials will start at 8:10. This will be discussed and explained in more detail at the testing training on Tuesday afternoon.



  • Lockdown: We will have an unannounced Lockdown Drill before the end of the year.

  • Planning for 19-20: It is almost time for me to begin working with the district office on allotments for next year. Please let me know ASAP if you are planning to retire or resign so that I can plan accordingly for filling vacancies. Even if you are just considering a change it would still help to know. My goal is to give you information about next year as soon as possible and this information is always helpful when planning.

PM Duty:Team 2 - Harrington, Lien, Young, Fernandez, Layman, Evans, Webster, Ross


Please do not send out mass emails regarding other covering duty for you due to an absence/progressional development. We must have confirmed people out at car duty and we have been short several days due to no one answering the mass email and/or people not covering their duty. This is too important a time of day for us to hope someone sees the email and helps out. Please text a friend that doesn't have duty to switch with you and/or text Carla.
