Dr. Rhodes' Weekly Message

We are nearing the finish line. We are all tired and it is at this time of year that it is easy to stop holding students accountable, ease up on classroom management, give busy work, etc. Instead, it is so important to continue your regular classroom routines, keep teaching and have fun with your students, but also continue to teach CHAMPS expectations. If you are not in the classroom, I know you are exhausted too! Keep offering friendly and courteous customer service to all that you interact with...we can all keep going...the finish line is near, but push through till June 2nd!!

Upcoming Events and Reminders

The 2016-2017 Planning Calendars are now hung outside my office. Please do not add anything to the calendars at this point. We must add all state/district assessment windows, district holidays, etc. before other items can be listed. I will email when the calendar is open to various stakeholders. 2016-2017 Team Leaders should begin gathering dates for events each grade level/department wishes to add to the calendar. Remember, we will continue our grade level events that each team chose last year that are specific to your grade levels. These should be added to the calendar as well. All added items should be written in pencil and initialed by the person adding the item.

2016-2017 district curricular revisions will be completed and posted to Forethought by the following dates: Fall 2016- Thursday, June 9th; Spring 2017- October 14th.

Mr. Phillip is such a great man. He never complains, just rolls up his sleeves and gets to work.

Mauri went above and beyond to get iPad covers even when the wrong ones were sent twice by the company.

I had a bad day and Nicole was so kind to call and check on me the next morning.

My team took my class twice last week when I needed them one complained...THANK YOU!!

Teachers and assistants both helped cover various classes this last week when LPACS and ARDs ran over the specified times. Thanks to everyone for working as a team.
