Lakota Preschool Daily Memo

By: Kelly Miller


Ratio and Counting:
I would like to take the time to remind everyone of the importance of active monitoring. This includes...
a. counting aloud and verbally telling numbers/names of kids to teaching partners
b. always scanning the room, being aware of all students
c. double checking surroundings before leaving a location
d. using the door posters and backpack posters
e. maintaining a 10:1 ratio at all times, including during transitions and restroom breaks!
f. use of Walkie talkies to maintain ratio or get assistance. All classrooms should have theirs on and should be using them! We've seen them come in handy when the floating IA or AT needs to support the next classroom!

"Everyone has been super nice. People I've never met before stop me in the hallway asking me how I'm doing and if I need anything. You have a wonderful staff!" :-)

From Katie McClure:

A HUGE shout-out to Kelly for taking me to the doctors and home on Wednesday! I really appreciate the time you took out of your day to make sure I was taken care of. :)

To Sue, Lauren, and Deb: Thank you for all that you do on a daily basis with the kids and holding down the fort! I seriously don't know what I would do without you all!
