Parent Forms

Thank you for continuing to collect these and sending home extra copies as needed. The most important form is the Code of Conduct. All of the other forms are okay if they don't come back as long as we provided them the opportunity to give us the information. If the FERPA form does not come back, it defaults to a "yes.". The Code Of Conduct must come back in the event there is a significant discipline issue, we have to have documentation that parents and students were aware of the process.


We will put class lists in your box this Wednesday so you can check off who you have a form from and give you directions and when and where to turn in your forms. Be sure to alphabetize them by like form when you turn them into us. Thank you again for your help gathering this information.

Communication

Thank you for including me on your emails! You are doing a great job of keeping parents informed about what goes on in your room, sending reminders, and helping parents feel connected. Remember to be communicating at least weekly, either by email or by a newsletter. If you have not added me to your email group, thank you for doing that this week.


The district expects us to keep our websites current. Part of that is to have your assignments posted so parents can go to it as a resource. You should have a MOOSE page as part of your web page to list assignments and homework for parents to use when they can't get ahold of you. If you need help, ask Bill or Ana.

Attendance

Thank you for making this work! You are doing a great job of getting you first attendance done by 8:15 and you second one right after when the bell rings at 9:45. Thank you!

Faculty Meeting

We will have a faculty meeting on Thursday, September 3 in the ART room at 3:20.

Refrigerator Permit
