Fire Ants

Please send Mrs. Wallace and I an email (include location) if you encounter ant mounds while at recess or walking our school grounds.

K-5 EVAAS Roster Verification

Roster Verification is coming up. We will be meeting as we did last year to review the rules and policies for completing this process correctly.

This is the perfect time to look at your powerschool list and make sure that all students listed physically appear in your class daily. If not...why? Is this student in an alternative setting, sick, lost, etc. We have to know where all children are. Please forward names to me of student that are physically in your class but not in powerschool or vise versa, students that are on your list but do not appear in your class. This excludes a student that is absent a day here and there. Please submit for anyone out indefinitely or without powerschool info.

WIX Names

Mrs. Wallace only has names from two grades 3-5 teachers. This equates to us needing student names from 8 more teachers. Please turn this info in today!!! It is very important to reserve our WWW trip.

Don't give up on Common Core

We have to keep a positive mindset on Common Core. We have to convince ourselves, our students and parents that we are moving in the right direction. Please filter out learning strategies and interventions. Think back...How are we using our AMC training. If you are in grades 3-5...have you asked about AMC to see if there is any interventions for your lower math students.
