ROSTER VERIFICATION

We are currently setting up roster verification accounts. Carefully look at each email you receive to make sure that you do not delete any from EVAAS. Please log in to make sure your account has been set up properly. Email me if you have problems with the log in process.


On Wednesday, May 11th Crystal Clodfelter will meet with teachers (classroom, EC, ESL, and Reading Specialist) during your planning to assist you in claiming students for Roster Verification. Those who need to attend will be contacted with more information prior to the 11th.

TEACHER APPRECIATION WEEK- THANK YOU

We hope that you enjoyed all of the goodies during Teacher Appreciation Week. PLEASE send a text, email, or note to the parents who took the time to spoil you in your classroom. We will be thanking those who sent snacks for the dessert bar on Friday.


We sent home notes and ConnectEd messages and our parents came through. We have talked about needing to have parents be more involved and last week they proved that they care about what you do for the boys and girls of LDS!

LDS TEACHER OF THE YEAR NOMINATIONS & CRITERIA

To celebrate how hard our students have worked and get them excited for how well they will do showing what they have learned this year, we will celebrate EOG Spirit Week May 13th-20th.The LDS Student Council has picked the theme for each day. Please encourage your students to participate.

LIBRARY BOOKS ARE DUE MAY 13TH

Please help and encourage your students to find any missing library books. Mrs. Land has sent home overdue notices and she will continue to do so in hopes of help to encourage students to return their books. Please do everything possible and check everywhere for these books. Replacing missing books is very expensive and the money is taken from the LDS budget.


So that Mrs. Land can begin the inventory process, no books can be checked out after May 13th. If there is a book that you need for a lesson Mrs. Land will work with you if you let her know in a timely manner.

TEST ADMINISTRATOR TRAINING

At the beginning of the school year we shared with you that the May staff meeting would be used for Test Administrator training. We have several teachers who have been accepted in the TEAP program and they have a required meeting that day so we will offer Test Administrator training on May 16th & 17th from 2:45-4:00 pm. All certified staff MUST attend a training session so please plan accordingly.

END OF THE YEAR

Soon you will receive the end of the year checklist. It will detail things that you will need to do and/or turn in before the last required workday.


A few quick reminders:

  • Please do not label student desks and chairs with your name or room number as you are packing up your classroom. We will soon be shifting furniture to make sure we are ready for testing. We also are working to meet the needs of our growing school population for next year.
  • The workdays are for packing your personal items and cleaning your classroom. As soon as you take things down and pack them away, school is out for students in their minds. The only items that should be taken down or packed away prior to the last student day are those things that would be considered inappropriate for a testing environment. Mrs. Varoutsos will share that information during the test administrator training.
  • The daily schedule for next year will look different due to the number of rising 4th graders. If you have any scheduling suggestions/ideas please email them to me by Thursday, May the 12th.

SPECIALS

  • The 4th quarter music production is scheduled for Tuesday, May 17th at 6:30 pm. Classes currently taking music will perform.
  • The last day of specials will be Friday, May 27th due to EOG testing.
  • There may be adjustment to the specials schedule May 24-26th due to the Science EOG. After we see how things go on the 24th we will be able to make more informed decision.
