Teacher Weekly

St. Vincent de Paul Parish School

Greetings, staff.

Thank you for another excellent week of instruction for our learners. Our faith truly lives within our walls. I continually see kindness, love, and service for our children. Please remember to continue to make decisions that benefit our learners best interest and align to the overarching vision of our ministry; to bring children closer to Christ.

Kids at heart in Catholic education,



SAFETY: Please make sure you are locking your doors when you leave your classroom. You were very diligent of this at the very beginning of the year and I need the sense of safety to continue.

PLAYGROUND: There have been a few instances where the playground doors were left propped open. If you come in from the playground please make sure the door "propper" is taken out.

MORNING GATHERING: Please arrive on time at 7:45 A.M. to help with student supervision.

HOUSEKEEPING: Please be sure you are keeping our community areas clean, as you have found them. Our staff workroom should stay organized and clean for the next staff member to use.

PICTURES: Please be sure to take pictures of your learners doing various tasks. You can use the camera accessory on your Ipad. Send them to me so I can include them in our newsletters. Also keep a file for yourself for your portfolio. The new teacher evaluation system relies heavily on documentation. Be sure to keep a file of your pictures to use as your evidence.

We encourage international-mindedness in IB students. To do this, we believe that students must first develop an understanding of their own cultural and national identity. All IB students learn a second language and the skills to live and work with others internationally—essential for life in the 21st century
