A Publication for HES Staff
Week of February 8th
Friendly reminder that report cards were due on Friday. Please let me know ASAP if you haven't completed them and did not already reach out. Also, please email me the names of students you would like for me to review. Let's make sure they're completed by today so we can all enjoy the Super Bowl :)
Don't forget that Secret Valentine begins this week.
Please remember that all SGO modifications must take place by 2/15. See below for details.
We are anticipating a visit from the fire marshal this month. It's very important that every staff member review and abide by the guidelines below. Thanks in advance for your support!
Finally, I continue to be impressed with the enrichment cluster offerings conceived by our staff! Click here to sign up if you haven't already done so. Friendly reminder: the expectation is that every staff member lead a class or support someone who is leading.
Wishing you a wonderful week.

An Update from Katie: With Math I Can
Amazon has launched a campaign to change the way students think about their frustrations with math and foster the development of growth mindset in children and adults. They are sharing free resources about growth mindset on their website. Check it out and watch the video!

Reminder: Lesson Plans
Administrators may now unlock SGO's. To make modifications, email the administrator who is responsible for reviewing your SGO. Once the change is made, reach back out to the same administrator.
If I am assigned to review your SGO: please email me even if you don't require a change. I will then advance your SGO in OnCourse from "initial implementation" to "final implementation."
Let me know if you have any questions!
