School of Grammar Gazette
Issue #18: February 15-19
Just some notes about lunch/recess/lunchroom dismissal:
1.) Recess dismissal will be overseen by a lunch monitor, but we do not have sufficient staff to walk students all the way out to the playground. Students will be accompanied to the end of the entry walk, cones will be placed all along the sidewalk, and students will be directed to walk to the playground being sure to stay on the sidewalk, within the cones while the monitors observe. Any "stragglers" will be directed to recess via the music hallway.
2.) This coming week we will be attempting something new with the 5th graders that has proven successful with SoL students - dismissing by table. Students will be asked to clean up their respective tables, return to their seat, and tables will be dismissed based upon how temperate students are behaving and, similarly, will be directed to walk to the playground being sure to stay on the sidewalk, within the cones while a monitor observes.
3.) Please remind your scholars that the monitors should be afforded to same respect and response scholars show each of you.
As always, if you have and questions, suggestions and/or general feedback please contact me.
Thanks so much for offering to cover for me for part of the Opera this morning. I was able to accomplish quite a bit in 25 minutes! I really appreciated the time, and the thoughtfulness of you even offering.
From Ms. Urbrock: I'd like to give a high five to:
Maria Marchand, Jen Granneman, Claire Gilbert, and Sara Knudsen for their extra supervision for the Opera today. I greatly appreciate their time, help, and friendliness!!
