Staff Update: January 15th, 2015

Crestview Elementary and Nuevas Fronteras Spanish Immersion

Smiles, Thoughts and Thanks...

  • High-fives to everyone who helped (and continues to help) out with MAP and OLPA testing. THANK you for your efforts to keep students quiet in the hallways as well!
  • Many thanks to Shelley Belka, Stacie Brown, Erin Polta and the Tech committee for leading the learning this week for the CES staff!
  • Happy Birthday to Terri Geiser (1/24)!

February Conferences

Karla and Linda will have conference reminder sheets in your mailbox by February 1. Conference dates are February 17 and 19. Conference schedules are viewable on the T Drive.

NFSI Tours: Thursday, January 22nd, 9:30-11:00

Nuevas Teachers- our annual school tour date is next Thursday! As in previous years, the NFSI PTSO parents have graciously volunteered to docent small groups of potential parents on tours through our fabulous school. Please leave classroom doors open-- for the most part, families will be instructed to "peek-in" to classrooms from the hallway so as to minimize the disruption. Thank you!

ATPPS Info...

Great Job everyone on completing your second round of peer observations! If you have not had anyone observe you yet, please ask around and get them logged into PD express this week. Observations are a great way to learn from our peers and grow as educators!

Looking ahead: your FINAL peer observation is due Thursday, MARCH 5TH! It may seem a ways away, BUT with days off and weekends we're looking at about 6 weeks. Also, be sure to check into PD Express (under plans) about your Flex Day. Tim Bunnell may have made some comments or suggestions to tweak your plan. Don't forget the 5.5 hours need to happen OUTSIDE of your contract day. (You have until June to complete those)


To add a little more color and inspiration to our staff updates, from time to time we will include a photo from somewhere in our building under the heading "have you seen this?" If you have a photo you would like to submit, please send it to Tina! Check out the photo below.... have you seen this???

The staff update will typically come out via email on Thursday or Friday each week. If you have an item that you would like to include in this bulletin, please email it to Tina by Wednesday noon, and we’ll do our best to add it to the bulletin. Let’s work together to use this bulletin as our primary method for making all-school announcements, and hopefully by distributing information in one central way, we can all keep well-informed!
