1. When a new student enrolls at DCE, their cumulative folder will be put in your box with a "Look at Me" paper on front. Please review the information inside, initial that you've seen, and pass on to the next person. PLEASE DO NOT TAKE THE FOLDER FROM THE OFFICE AREA.

2. Remind any parent who wants to volunteer at the school (including Friday readers), that a Background Check MUST be completed AND CLEARED BEFORE they can help! If you will give Margareta the name of your volunteer before they come, she can check their status and let you know if they are cleared. Background Checks could take up to 2 weeks to be completed.

3. Thank you to everyone who has already completed their Educator Evaluation Self-Evaluation. If you have not done so yet, please be sure you have it completed and submitted at least 3 days before your scheduled Goal Setting Conference. If you have any questions at all, please come ask Tricia or me.

4. All BOY data is due in AWARE by September 24th. Please let us know if you are having any trouble entering your data.

5. Don't forget to watch the required videos for Barbara on Sexual Abuse Prevention and Recognition of Maltreatment of Children and Child Abuse Reporting. The deadline for these videos is Sept. 26th.
