10 Expectations

High Expectations

Having high expectations for our students is a vital part of their success! How do you show your students that you have high expectations for them? What would your students say helps them to achieve?

  • Please make sure that you are using our preferred sub list when possible. If you need a list check with Shirley. We have had a few sub concerns and this is less likely to happen when we use our preferred list.
  • Amy Myers has made the decision to remain at home. She has expressed her sincer appreciation to the Rountree staff and said working with each of you was a blessing!
  • Please remember to follow the field trip checklist. It is very important that you meet deadlines for transportation needs and cafeteria notice.

The week at a glance below is a live link to the ishare calendar for your convenience.

Parent report card concerns and questions

Phone calls, Facebook messages, and email notifications were sent encouraging parents with questions and concerns about the new report card to come to our parent meeting. The above picture shows the parents with questions and/or concerns. Rountree parents and the Rountree community as a whole trust you! They believe that we are doing what is best for kids! If they didn't, we would have had a full house. Be confident and encouraged as you enter conference time. Parents want to leave hearing something positive about their kiddo and find out if they are on target. Don't overthink it!
Why Education?

Go to our Rountree page and find the why education discussion. Leave a comment and/or respond to a colleague. If you have read the Report this far and complete the Canvas discussion assignment you will get a surprise:)
