DISC 2019: Wednesday, August 14 is Chatham County's DISC! Dr. Liz Kolb, the creator of the Triple E Framework will be presenting. On the DISC 2019 website, you can register for the conference or submit a proposal to present. Presenters will get a premium gift and special DISC 2019 t-shirt. Attending this summer conference is a great way to earn some CEUs and learn new ways to incorporate technology into your classrooms. Several Jaguars were there last year and it was a wonderful way to see colleagues and get our brains ready for the new school year. So SAVE THE DATE and hope to see you all on August 14th!

Supervision is always critical, however, with end of year excitement in full is more critical than ever! Please supervise well and make sure all your duties are covered.

Planning for 19-20: It is almost time for me to begin working with the district office on allotments for next year. Please let me know ASAP if you are planning to retire or resign so that I can plan accordingly for filling vacancies. Even if you are just considering a change it would still help to know. My goal is to give you information about next year as soon as possible and this information is always helpful when planning.
