This Week's Birthdays

May 11 - Rebecca Shackleford

Nuts and Bolts

We Need Your Help

Teachers, over the last few weeks, we have seen a large increase in the number of students out in the hallways during instructional time. Please help everyone by keeping your students in your classrooms where they will be supervised.


Along the same lines, please make sure you are visible during class changes in the hallway. If would be even better if we could have a teacher or two hanging out in the bathrooms during the change of classes.


I know this seems like a lot, but prevention is always better then have to react after the fact.

Testing Starts Again!

We are back to testing this week. We will have testing going on everyday except Friday. Please make sure students are traveling quietly between classes.

Lunchroom/Black Top Supervision

This week, Marc, Sommer and I will be going non stop with testing and interviews so we will most likely not be available at lunch time. Please make sure your grade level takes a radio with them to lunch.

Placement of students for 2016-17

We are starting to prepare for 2016-17 student placement. I believe that if this is done right, it will help ensure that everyone has classes that really promote learning. I have been working with technology to develop a google doc that will help us gain valuable information about each of our students. As soon as the Student Information Sheet is ready, I will meet with each grade level to let you know how it works. It should not take very long to complete the sheet as most information is pre-entered.
