Align the goals in Writing Strategies Book to Units of Study and Writing Pathways.

PD sessions from last week's staff meeting

Just a reminder, if you missed last staff meeting, I have extra Math kits Ms. Powell created in my office. Please swing by to grab one. You will need to meet with her to get the training on how to use the kits.


Also, many of you mentioned wanting the math manipulative kit that was used in the demonstration. I am happy to purchase these, but you will need to get the full retraining from Ms. Powell. Please use the sign up genius to sign up to attend the PD.

GROW

School Spending reminders

We recently underwent an audit for our school. The audit revealed a few practices that we need to review. Please see the list below:


  • No money can stay in classrooms over night
  • All money collected from students must be receipted and turned in daily
  • Change CANNOT be given to students for field trips. If students turn in more money than is required, it is considered a donation to the school and must be receipted. Please communicate to parents to send in EXACT change.
  • A pink form must be filled out prior to any purchase made
  • ALL money collected for PTA events/fundraisers/etc. must be deposited in the PTA safe outside of the media center. (You can still send the money up in the black homeroom envelopes. We will take care of putting it in the proper safe.)
