This Week's News

Teacher MacBooks: Every teacher will get a MacBook on April 20th during your plan time. Sped can join a grade level or meet at 3:00. Although it was a steep learning curve, I LOVE my MacBook and think you will, too. Donna and Shella are providing PD on April 27th and May 1st. **You must sign up for one of these dates on MLP. More info and details to come.


Kelly: Kelly Burnett recently had surgery and is at home recovering. She wanted you all to know she is focusing on recovering and doesn't need anything at this time but she knows we are thinking of her.


NEE Units of Instruction and Professional Development Plans: You may have heard that UOI and PDPs will be a part of NEXT year's NEE process. I promise that these expectations are very much aligned with our Data Teams and RV work and will be "real work". We can do them as a group or grade level. This is not something that you need to think about now, but I wanted it on your radar. If you want more details you can ask our Curriculum Council reps: Gretchen, Jaysa or Nicole or me.


Watch the Zones: Just a reminder to watch the zones at recess, as always. We appreciate all you do to keep our students on track, especially now that spring is in the air.
