1. Please email Shannon and Tricia at least 3 dates/times for your 1st observation. The fall observations will be scheduled. Please also include if you want a pre and/or post conference.

2. Barbara will be emailing which part of the Character documentation your team will be gathering. Please let Barbara, Tricia, or myself know if you have any problems or questions.

3. Let Tricia know ASAP if you do not have your emergency exit map posted in your room. Remember this map should be posted by the door and EASY to see!

4. Remember last year EVERYONE received the special magnet to prop your door open. Doors should remained locked throughout the day. A magnet would be tossed in case of a lock down. If you do not have a magnet, let Margareta know.

5. Thank you to the teams who let me know what they might like for the Write a Check campaign. If you did not do so, it is not too late!

6. Don't forget to nominate one of your students for the Coppell Ed Foundation "Star Student" Award! You can also nominate a fellow educator!! DEADLINE Oct 23rd!!
