Planting the Seeds of 16-17

Well after the announcement on Friday, I hope that you are all excited about our visit in October. We are going to begin our work with Ron Clark slowly.

HIs book the Essential 55 starts with basic, respectful mannerism. These are mannerisms that many of us have had a conversation about know that we feel are being lost. For example, rule 2, making eye contact with the speaker. One thing that you will notice at the academy is that the students KNOW the essentials and put them into practice each day, but another thing that you will notice IS THAT THEY ARE MODELED FOR THEM!

So let's begin.....I think you will enjoy this book!

Need to Know News


It is that time....students are ready for summer....teachers are ready. Please keep students engaged every second of the day. If you have a situation, please write it up. Do not bring a student to the office to drop off, especially if you have not contacted an administrator. I wanted to remind you of this b/c with award's days coming up, IEP meetings, and other end of they year task; admin may not be in the office. You are welcome to write it up and we will come down to get the student as soon as possible. If it is serious issue and call over the walkie.

PE Survey

All homeroom teachers need to complete a PE survey. We will meet in the Crite's lab on Wednesday to complete the survey. This should only take a few minutes.

PAWS Celebration

Please be mindful of supervision on this day. We need to be moving around and supervising students. It does not look good to our volunteers if we are sitting or gathered together talking. We need to be actively supervising. Please note, we will not have recess. This will count as recess for students.
