First Week

We survived the first week of school! It was a great opening to the school year! Thank you all for your positive energy throughout the first week! I look forward to working together for the rest of the school year! I hope you find time over the long weekend to kick your feet back and relax after a very eventful week!

Prang Power

On the back of the boxes of Ticonderoga Pencils is a little "tab" to clip and save. If we clip and save these tabs we can use them to order school supplies. We will create a box to keep in the office to collect these tabs. When you order pencils from the supply closet, please clip the tab and drop it in the box in the office. Special thanks to Mrs. Piccolo for discovering this!

School Pictures

School pictures are Wednesday, September 9th and Thursday, September 10th. Please check the schedule Mrs. Remetta sent in August and remind your students of the scheduled day.

Phone Message and Website

Please remember to update your phone message if you have switched classrooms. Also, please continue to update your website throughout the school year. As discussed at the staff meeting, technology is a great way to stay in touch with parents and maintain positive communication.

Team Goals

I will meet with each of the following teams to review observation/evaluation, Basic Skills, schedules, and any other items missed at the opening in-service. Since Open House is Thursday, I scheduled many of them for Friday. If you would like to meet Thursday instead, please let me know. You may use the second team time for next week to prepare for Open House.
