Scarborough's Summary

Thank you to everyone for another great week. The Admin team has begun our observations so look for us in your classroom soon! Remember to read the comments left on your evaluations in the PD&E database. Mr. Hunter will begin his visits next week as well. The coaches will let you know if we plan on visiting your grade level, but everyone should be ready for a drop in visit. Everyone have a nice weekend!

Kudos Korner from the Admin Team

Kudos to Aminah Hassan, Kindergarten and Charli Sanders, First grade! Aminah and Charli have both invited the coaches in to assist them with planning and their instruction. We love to see teachers taking control of their professional development and growth!


At times we will put messages in here to see who is taking the time to read the newsletter. This week, we are allowing jeans to be worn on Wednesday, but don't tell! Only those who read this will know the secret and wear jeans on Wednesday (only- except Friday as usual). :)

Media Center News

Library orientations are almost finished and the media center is almost ready to start allowing whole classes to come to the media center. We are excited to get started, so please come to the media center to signup for a whole class time!

Counselors' Corner

The Great Days of Service week is Oct. 19-23. This is a county wide food and toiletry drive that supports 7 Gwinnett food banks. Rockbridge will be collecting tooth brushes, toothpaste, shampoo, deodorant, soap and toilet paper.

Custodian Closet

The county has placed a huge focus on the maintenance of the school's carpeting. The county replaces the carpet every 15 years. The sooner we know of a spill, accident or illness the more likely we are prevent a permanent stain. Stains on the carpet count against the school's two annually unannounced inspections, so your help is greatly appreciated if we are to win the award again this school year.

Guided instruction is an ideal time to differentiate.
