The Pirate's Log

Week of November 16, 2015

Thanks again!

Thank you for your feedback this morning about our busy week!

It was so nice to just sit back and talk!

Great things are happening at Furry!

Hope you have a fabulous weekend!


2 Hour Early Release~November 18

This week's early release day is teacher-led. Our BLT will most likely need this time to share some updates on our school-wide PBIS model within our TBT/grade level teams. Specials, ACCESS, Intervention Specialists and anyone else who is not tied to a specific team will want to touch base with a grade level so you're in the loop.

BLT...Please let me know if you need anything from me.

Paraprofessionals...I have not heard what PD is going to be offered to you. As soon as I do, I'll share!


If you have any pictures of our fun week, please feel free to send them my way. I need to update our slide show and want to make sure I have a variety.

Kinsa Smart Thermometers

As I'm typing this we already have 44 members in our Furry Elementary School group! So cool! I'll let you know as soon as I receive my thermometer. Ms. Liles received hers in just a few days! I'll be tweeting about it this weekend too...feel free to retweet and share on your websites and in your newsletters.


Please do not ignore a blocked breakfast/lunch account and feed a child. Breakfast/lunch accounts are blocked for specific reasons. For example, if a child says they are eating breakfast and they have never eaten breakfast before, please double check with the cafeteria staff before getting them food.

School Safety

I need some feedback...

Would you like me to make arrangements with Officer Tonya and/or Assistant Chief Parthemore to visit Furry for a safety training? Let me know what specifically you think we need and I'll touch base with them.

Does anyone have questions about where to have their hard corner in their classroom? I can ask Officer Tonya to check out our rooms on one of her visits too.

These things were on my list to chat about this morning...but I glossed over them. :)

I'll work on getting copies of certain parts of our Emergency Operations Plan to you this next week.

After Hours Social Hour(s)

Card making with Mike and Bill will take place in our library on Wednesday, November 18 from 4:30-6:30. Please remember to bring your $12.00 cash with you!

The sign-up sheet is still on Terri's counter...if you want to still join, feel free to sign up!

Project Happy

Our school district is partnering with Faith Memorial Church and their "Project Happy~Christmas for Sandusky, Ohio" initiative.

Per Faith Memorial...

Help us spread happiness this Christmas by being a part of Project happy-Christmas. We are asking you to fill ONE shoebox and return it to your office/business or to Faith Memorial Church by December 10. We will be going out with trailors full of boxes on December 23 at 5:00 door-to--door to bless disadvantaged families with Christmas presents.

There will be a brochure in each of your mailboxes on Monday morning. Feel free to make it a classroom project! Our district will be making arrangements with Faith Memorial for pick-up. All shoeboxes are due to my office by Thursday, December 10.
