Moseley! Cougars! Moseley! Cougars!

We did a great job with testing this past week! Thank you all for your professionalism, flexibility, and collaboration. All of our team members were essential players that made our testing run smoothly. Thanks again!


As we discussed at our meeting on Friday, please remember:

1) Keep students engaged from 7:55-2:55 (downtime causes discipline issues)

2) Monitor students closely at all times in hallways, restrooms, outside, etc.

3) Create a plan for your classroom and students and share your expectations with them.

4) Communicate with parents regarding upcoming events (be clear with your expectations)

Reminders & Updates!

Next school year 2016-2017

The district has decided to keep our students time the same as this year. So there will be no change in the students schedule. Students will be in school from 7:55-2:55!


ISIP/ISIP Espanol

The last report card will be sent home with the I-station report that tells them where the student is with reading. Please see Ms. Sternes if you do not know how to access this report.


TTM/ISIP (3rd-5th)

3rd-5th grade students will have access at home during the summer for Think Through Math and I-Station. This is a great opportunity for all students to keep working during the summer to be prepared for the next grade level. Let's take advantage of this opportunity and ensure all students have their passwords. We will be posting this on the website as well to ensure parents know how to access it.


*****************************************************************************

As we begin to wrap up the last weeks of school please remember to keep yourself organized. We enter the last week of this six weeks, grades, honor roll and perfect attendance will all be due. So please pace yourselves to ensure you are on top of the game.
