Mrs. Mayer's Monday Morning Memo

January 18, 2016

Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Staff Development

Staff Development team will be meeting Monday after school. Once the schedule is generated, it will be sent out to you. Some things to look forward to for next Monday are:

*Mobile Tech- Alicia Green with be here

*PLC's- How are things going with Jan Richardson? How did the webinar clarify, or help as you move forward for the rest of the year?

*Data- Do we need to regroup our students? Are there students who do not need the interventions, that other students can move into?

*HMH- How is it going? What support do you need in HMH? How are you using Think Central?

*Mr. Wellen will also be having an all school staff meeting. We will also have an elementary staff meeting. The day will be packed, but hopefully meaningful for you!!

FAST Data

I sent out the Benchmarks for grades K-3, last week. Is there other information that would be helpful to you? If so, please let me know.

I did send out the data that I have received so far. You can filter how ever your grade level wants.

Updates:

* My home number is changed. If you need to get a hold of my at home, please call 564-2237. If you cannot reach me on my home phone, I am usually available on my cell at 255-1903. (My cell does not always work at home.)

*We have a lot of extra hats in the office. If you would like some to keep in your classroom, feel free to grab a hand full.

* Thank you for filling out the pink slips for behavior. During the January staff development day, we will familiarize ourselves with how to put them in Skyward, and get rid of all paper referrals. :0)

* Caught You Being Good- Starting this week, I will draw five names from each bucket. I will not be drawing one from each classroom.

* Because of MLK day, the School Board meeting will be held on Thursday the 22nd. Also, please make sure you dedicate part of your day today, to MLK teaching.

Happy Birthday- January

Mayer's Out and About Days, this week

Because of the number of observations I have this week, I will not be "scheduling" Out and About Days. They will be scattered throughout the week.

Additions?

If you have anything you think I should add to the Monday Memo, please let me know by Friday of the week before.
