Things You Should Know

District Strategic Plan: Goal 1 - Student Achievement; Goal 2 - Quality Staff; Goal 3 - Safe Schools/Learning Environment; Goal 4 - Home/School/Community Relations

School Improvement Plan: Focuses on Increased Student Achievement (District Goal 1) and Increasing Knowledge of Common Core (District Goal 2)

Please familiarize yourself with the plan prior to Tuesday's faculty meeting. (District Goal 3)

- Thank you to Cathy for her extended efforts to make the building sparkle for Senator Brady's visit. Thank you fifth grade and PreK for adjusting your schedule and allowing the Senator to spend time with your classes. (District Goal 4)

-Thank you to Connie Boznos and Pam Nelson for attending a workshop on instructional strategies. (District Goals 1 & 2)

- It is time to schedule our quarterly aide meeting. Please let me know if there is a time of day (45 minutes) that you cannot be without an aide. This meeting will include crisis plan training. I will be looking for teacher coverage in the office and PK/ECE. It is critical that Audra, Tanya, and Chris attend this training, as each has a critical role in the crisis plan. The crisis training will be duplicated for teachers as part of our faculty meeting on November 13th. (District Goal 3)
