MFE Principal Notes

August 31, 2015

Welcome to Week 2!

Mimi Farley Elementary we have lots of events coming up for some great learning experiences for teachers, and some planning to do for students. I hope your first week of school has gone well, and we will work individually to discuss students and your classroom needs throughout this week and next week. These meetings will be informal, and I will help you with DMAC to view student information and help you to create your first unit assessment for your students.

Just a reminder that I need your WoWW Wish List of Field Trips by the end of the day, and Lori Novak will be here tomorrow to help us get everything scheduled. Remember when you are selecting your field trip to try to pic dates that correlate with what you will be teaching. This will help us to create authentic learning experiences for students.

On another note, our school calendar reflects an Early Release Day at the end of each six weeks this year. The calendar committee chose these days to help teachers complete all of the required documents for grade reporting at the end of the six weeks. Students will be released to their parents/teams at 1:00 on these days, and teachers will then have time complete all reports before leaving for the day at 4:00. All reports will be due to Mrs. Williams at 4:00 and grades must be posted before leaving.

Don't forget to send Mrs. Thomas your Shelfie!
