Upton Update (Staff Edition)

Week of September 28, 2015


This week we are focusing on Cooperation. Use the matrix and resources available in the Media Center to help you teach and promote this characteristic. Don't forget to type your class learning point in Google Drive by Friday morning!

Also, you will be receiving a script to use with your homeroom class to introduce the ROCK Band program. Look for this in your mailbox on Monday. This needs to be shared with students before Friday.

Picture Day

Picture Day is this Monday! You should have received a schedule of times. Parent volunteers will come down and inform you when it is time for your classes pictures, in case we are running late.

PTA Restaurant Night

This Tuesday, the PTA will be having a restaurant night at Shield's Pizza. If you need to grab dinner, please consider Shield's!

Professional Development

This week Wednesday, grades K-2 will be at the Board Office working on Writing Pathways: On-Demand Scoring (make sure you have your book with you). Grades 3-5 will be at Addams Elementary focusing on writing Growth Goals. Mr. Joe Youannes, principal of Addams, will be leading this Professional Development at Addams. I will be at Oakland Schools for an Attendance Conference.


Just a reminder, please send an electronic copy of your weekly newsletters to me.
