THINGS TO KNOW...

*Please stay safe tonight with the inclement weather. If it does get bad and your sustain damage to your home or car, reach out to your team so that we can help take care of anything you might need.

*School is open tomorrow from 8-4.

*Western Art Show is tomorrow at Conroe High 9 from 11-3. Please make an effort to drop by and see our student's art work, especially if you have a child with artwork there.

*Self-care challenge. There is bulletin board in the lounge transformed to the monthly challenge board. Please take a minute to complete a heart and add what your challenge is for January.

*Tina Boogren's book - Take Time for You - remember if you want to participate in a short book study and take better care of yourself, please email me so that I can add you to the list to order books.

*Focus this week on walking in the hallway correctly. We will be talking about it on the announcements and reminding students of the "Check 4" for the hallway.

*Gretchen Montgomery will be here on Monday, January 13. If you need anything specific from her, please feel free to contact her. Otherwise, I have asked that she pop in and out of math classrooms and provide feedback on things we are doing good and one strategy that you can focus on. Don't be surprised if she shows up in your room during math.

*Thursday is PTO spirit day at Canes. They are running it all day for us so grab lunch and dinner! :) Just remember to tell them you are with ORE.

*Please help us remind parents that we are out of school for a holiday on Monday, January 20. We all have the day off!

*********SAFETY REMINDERS -

*Make sure you have your badge on at all times. If you see visitors in the hallway without badges on, please escort them to the front office to obtain a badge.

*Classroom doors must be locked at all times. If you need a magnet to prop it open, come see Tami.

*********We WILL be having a safety audit this year. Please check your room for things like plug ins or other extra plug in things, chords stretched too far across the room, excess "stuff" in your room (less is more), etc. We will be covering this in a future faculty meeting but go ahead and start working on it.

SPECIAL NOTE - February 17

February 17 was originally a "bad weather day" on the calendar. It is now a staff development day for all teachers. This is only a make up day for staff members who do not use the Kronos system. It will be a full day, 8-3. It will be a planning day for the spring semester.
