Nuts and Bolts

Absences - If you need to take a personal day it MUST be put into the system at least 3 days prior, this includes doctor appointments, etc. Not adhering to this rule may get your request denied.


Excerpt from the 2019-2020 Employee Handbook: Discretionary Leave taken at an employee’s discretion that can be scheduled in advance is considered discretionary leave. An employee wishing to take discretionary personal leave must submit a request to his or her principal or supervisor 3 days in advance of the anticipated absence. The effect of the employee’s absence

on the educational program or department operations, as well as the availability of substitutes, will be considered by the principal or supervisor.


Our ability to get substitutes has been very trying and Mrs. Nelson has worked tirelessly trying to get classes covered. It is a FULLTIME job in itself. I would like to thank Mrs. Nelson for not quitting me, all of the paraprofessionals that have helped by covering classes, and teachers who have volunteered to give up their conferences.


3-week grading period - Make sure grades are up-to-date by Friday. Not having your grades in could keep someone from becoming eligible to compete.


Tribe Time - In looking at what is being offered I think we can do better. Please consider offering a club or activity on a consistent day. Students need to get involved in things but that takes teachers willing to sponsor. Also, keep students accountable by checking attendance.


Innovative Learning Zone - The Apple TV has been installed and the learning space is ready for YOU. Stop by the office to get the remote and have fun teaching and learning in a new environment! I will share a calendar sign up so no one overlaps!


Indian Walks - Our next Indian Walks will be March 31st. Don't wait to get those samples done!!


Summative Conferences - All teachers will participate in summative conferences where goals for the next school year will be reviewed. Start thinking about your goals now. They should be centered around an area you want to grow in. They should also be measurable. We will begin conferences on April 20th.

I LEAVE YOU WITH THIS...

"Please remember that all those interactions you have with your students outside of the lesson really matter. The smiles… the eye contact…the jokes, the fist bumps…and the silliness…they are all important. They remind kids that THEY matter. Those moments can mean the world."

~ Danny Steele, Educator

It's a great day to be a Sanger Indian!
