HOW DOES THIS PIECE RELATE TO YOUR TEACHING?

TECHIE

NUTS & BOLTS

RED & BLACK


I hope all of you come. It should be a fun night, and a great way to build community. A reminder that tickets for staff are $20, and the regular price for plus ones.


OBSERVING ANOTHER TEACHER


The quarter is over. If you have not communicated with Mr. Solis about your experience, please make arrangements with him this week.


CANNED FOOD DRIVE


JUST ONE WEEK LEFT!


Please keep track of the amount of items your class brings in; we will need this information.


WEDNESDAY MEETING


We will have a full staff meeting on Wednesday. Please send me any agenda items.


MASS


This week, it's 4th grade.


SUCCESSMAKER SCHEDULE


Please make Ms. Clemens aware of any issues you are having with SuccessMaker. It's especially important, with the lead-up to IA, to rigidly adhere to this schedule.


IA


Testing starts next week!


PORTFOLIOS


I can't imagine doing a conference without using student portfolios. Some of you may still not feel confident about this practice. If so, please see Mr. Solis, Ms. Clemens or me. You can also check out this very dry, but very effective video explanation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kTClSU_md10


CONFERENCES


As always, have two glows for every grow. If you can't think of anything good to say about a child, then you're not thinking hard enough, and/or you haven't sufficiently developed your relationship with that child. Let me know if you need guidance with this.
