Monday Minutes

February 4, 2019

Here are a few reminders for the week:

1. Today is the last day to turn in your form for the Education Foundation Campaign. We still have a few folks that haven't turned in their forms. If you need another form, please check the counter in the work room or ask Sandy. Thank you!

2. We are looking forward to planning with you on Tuesday during extended planning! Team leaders, please send me your agenda prior to extended planning if you haven't already done so. I have attached the link to the extended planning exit ticket at the bottom of this newsletter. Please build in ten minutes at the end of your extended planning so that all teachers participating have time to complete it.

3. February 18th is our next professional development day. You will be receiving a schedule soon from professional learning that details the ins and outs of your day, so be on the lookout for that.

4. You received an email last week about a Control Environment Survey. You should receive the actual survey today. This is a legitimate survey from the district and the information you provide is valuable. Please take the time to complete the survey.

5. Jeans on Wednesdays for the month of February with pink or red, because you are fabulous!

Thank you for all you do! I appreciate every one of you!

Instructional Minute

I have attached a link to an Edutopia article at the bottom of this newsletter that discusses student engagement. It is a really quick read and pairs well with our book study this fall. This article offers ideas that will engage all learners - your high achievers, your slow processors, your creative thinkers, etc. I look forward to your feedback!
