EPS Staff Memo
Week Beginning Monday 16 November
Moodini and her winning ribbon!
Congratulations to Amy and her industrious team for bringing home the winning Picasso Cow! It certainly added some excitement to our week! If you didn't get to see the Win News interview I have attached the link above for you to watch.
Well done and thank you teachers for ensuring classes understood the reverence of our Remembrance Day assembly. Students were exceptionally respectful and this was notices and commented on by parents. In preparation for Wednesday's Art Assembly could you please remind students what they are capable of reinforce the need for a quiet entry to the assembly and the need for whole body listening.
Thank you to teachers who have started to pass on their reports for editing. A reminder to have a buddy read through them first before passing them on to your report leader. This year our general comment will comment on overall learning for the year, any areas in need of consolidation and areas of concern. Please use your work count wisely and not fall back into old habits of using superfluous adjective and platitudes e.g. " it has been a pleasure to teach XXXXXX and we wish him all the best for 2017'.
If you haven't yet had the chance take a minute to watch the you tube clips that Jan has shared from her PL on Dyslexia.
Don't forget to add your name to Karen's lists for the end of year dinner:
