Team: Great job this week with the STAAR exam. You guys made it look easy and we had almost no issues. Great job filling in where needed and working as a team. That's just another reason why our staff is the best in Texas and I'm happy to be a part of it.


Kudos:


- Denise Brademan for another hard week of making preparations so the STAAR exams run smoothly.


Notes:

- I will be sending out a staff survey to get feedback on the school year. Please be open and honest so I can address any issues necessary.


- Guidelines for class review - The best way for kids to be disengaged this time of year is having them sit and work on a worksheet while we sit at the computer. While I understand that we all have deadlines, please move around the room and monitor the classes. We don't need kids "testing the waters" this time of year. Make the review enjoyable! I have a great jeopardy template if anyone is interested.


- Make plans to attend our staff party Saturday night at Karen Wren's house. Please sign up to bring an item if you haven't yet.


- Guidelines for final exams are the same as the fall:

- 20% of the Final grade is the exam

- Make it cumulative

- Final grades are due on 6/6.


- Last work day - Our final contract day is Monday, June 6. We will complete our checkout process by Friday June 3. You still have one more day to work. I will leave it up to you as to whether that day will be Saturday the 4th or Monday the 6th. You're professionals and I trust we all have work to do.


- EOY Work Schedule - I will be releasing a work schedule for May 26-June 3...stay tuned!


- Awards Banquet Procedures are changing some...stay tuned.


- Jeans for the rest of the year.


Reminders:


1. #LISDedchat is suspended for the remainder of the year. It's been great conversation and I've learned a lot...but we need to direct our focus to finishing out the school year.
