RESPECT, EXPLORE, ACHIEVE, LEAD
Message from the Boss...
39 Instructional Days
ID badges MUST be worn. If you do not have one please let me know and I will find some time for you to go to Central Office to have one made.
The next few weeks need to be stress free. Testing season is upon us but students do not need to see or feel stress. I just think about my own daughter and her test anxieties. Students feel it and see it on us unless we play it cool and let them know it is going to be alright.
Do not forget to mark your calendars for Monday, April 2nd (FACULTY MEETING) This is the testing meeting that all need to attend to receive the testing information needed. **IF you are not able to attend I need to know immediately by email.**
Have a wonderful Easter Weekend! Hope you get to enjoy with your family and friends.
1. Be sure that you have clock in your room for time checks.
2. Be sure you have enough Chrombooks in your classroom for all students and that they will be charged and ready to go on testing days.
3. Headphones- check to make sure that your text to speech students have headphones available.
4. Make sure your classroom materials are covered before testing dates. I will check 5th grade classrooms on Monday, April 9th and 6th grade classrooms on Wednesday, April 11th.
The Cabot School District is proud to announce our second annual Classys!
The Classys is a great opportunity to honor our hardworking and most dedicated classified/support staff members. We’re looking for individuals that go above and beyond the call of duty every day.
Any employee or community member can nominate a classified employee for this award.
Honorees will be invited to attend the Classys Banquet. It will be held Monday, April 30, 2018 at 6:00 p.m. at the Cabot Freshman Academy cafeteria.
The deadline to nominate an individual is Friday, April 6, 2018.
Click link below to nominate one our wonderful classified staff members.
The Administrator that will check your PD will be the one that completed your observations this year. We will not begin to check out PD until after testing.
**This is just your heads up!
Let me know if you have any questions.
FIELD TRIP REMINDERS:
Teachers if you have a field trip coming up let the cafeteria know. This way they can make sure there is food available for emergency lunches, if needed.
IF they know that they will need lunches to let Mrs. Dianna know a approximate number needed AT LEAST three weeks BEFORE field trip so she can order food. The cafeteria will only send juice with field trips.
Chaperones: these are the parents that MUST pass the background check and are in charge of students. Mrs. Cheryl has the list of those parents. You CAN NOT approve a parent to be a chaperone until the background check has been cleared. Chaperones can ride the bus.
Volunteers: these are parents that go on the field trip but NOT in charge of students. They CAN NOT ride the bus. They take their own vehicle and met you there. They do not have to have a background check but it is recommended.
Let me know if you have any additional questions.
