Panda Post

Week of May 15th

What a great week!

Thank you for keeping kids engaged while were assessing last week. This is a great time to do class book, technology projects, and design math games (maybe for future Pandas).

Sarah and I are finishing up Summary Ratings (year end evaluations)! Please take a minute to update your PDPs by Wednesday of this week. We will go in and sign during our final, summative meeting. Let us know if you have questions. Also, it's ok to need more time to reach your goal. It you didn't accomplish your goal, say NO. It's not punitive!

mClass Reminders

Thanks for your hard work in completing mClass and SMI assessments. Assessing is draining, and it takes a lot of work! I appreciate how everyone supported their teammates! Well done!

K-2, Please plan to send home your mClass HOME CONNECT Letters on Tuesday, May 24th. Let's plan to send home mClass HOME CONNECT Letters on Tuesday, May 31, 2016 for grades 3-4!

Third and Fourth grade teachers, we do not want the letters to be a distraction from the kids performing their best on the EOGs. If 3-4 parents ask, just tell them you will send them home on Tuesday, with their EOG scores.

Thank you for your work with getting your EVAAS rosters completed. It's such a tedious process with so many players. THANK YOU!

Ordering Supplies for next Year......
Kelly will send you an email in the next week regarding ordering. We will order online through Office Depot like we did last year. Once we have our July 1 budget, I will approve your orders, and your supplies will be here before the start of school. Of course you can also use a different vendor (We will send you a link to the 16-17 purchase request for orders different than Office Depot). The amounts will stay the same as last year.

Class Rolls: We will also share with you the file to create classroom rolls. It's on my radar.
