MTSS and PLC Meetings

No Tuesday meetings because of Holiday - Look for after school meeting times.

Robin will be scheduling MTSS and PLC meetings with teams after school this week. We do not have time to loose. I was informed at my Principals meeting that all tier plans for failing students or students that entered the 2014-15 school year severely below grade level should be in place for the school year. Of course students that fall below at any point from here on out can be added.

So...did you give a possible retention letter? Does the student have a MTSS plan? If you answered Yes to the first question, then the answer to question two should/must be Yes.

This meeting date will take care of failures and more.

Schedules are so important.

  • Don't forget if you have an IEP meeting to check the calendar for coverage
  • If you need to reserve the mini computer lab see Summer Kelly
  • See the schedule if you are reserving the gym for 3-5 this is only during construction and bad weather days.
  • Staff Resource Folder in Google Drive has almost all if the schedules needed to be successful. Please let me know if something is missing.

Thanks Ladies

We only had three teachers to complete progress monitoring for the entire class for the 1st Semester. This means Blue, Green, Yellow and Red were progressed monitored on time and regularly as prescribed by Judge Manning. Meet the judge click here.




Check your box for a small treat for being on task.

Another standout teacher was Jennifer Maurer. She was great by organizing our science materials last week. She took on a multi-day task and knocked out a lot of work. Thanks you again. Jennifer received several jeans passes for her initiative to help get our school organized .


The copy center :

This is the area in the teacher workrooms (either up or downstairs) that you can leave your papers to be copied by Ms. Greenlee throughout the day. She will be responsible for making copies and placing them back in your box.

Please make sure that all details are marked on the Red Copy Order Form, Then place your originals and order into the plastic tray. Mrs. Greenlee is very happy to help, but please make sure that you are giving her ample time to make the copies. 24 hours is preferred.

Remember we are still making changes to better serve our customer

You will receive some updates in the coming days on phone calls, lunch time, recess, and other things that are important to all of us. See the teaser below...
