Weekly Memo for STAFF

Week of January 27-31: Have a great week!

Streelman: Out of Office

I am out Tuesday-Friday. Yikes! I will have my phone and computer with me most of the time, so please don't hesitate to text or email.

What's Happening in the Eagle's Nest?

Tuesday and Wednesday

Jen and I are going to be out January 28-29. Billy is going to have a sub and be in the office to assist with any issues you may have. Thank you, Billy!


I am excited about this training. We were invited to be a part of the Data Impact Project with the DOE. Only 10 schools in Florida are participating! The DIP is all about ESSA and schools that have two or more subgroups represented. As you know, I have talked a lot about this in our PLCs, so I am hoping to bring back more information to help these subgroups succeed.

Congratulations!

Congratulations to Rachel Roehm on being named the District's Project ONE New Teacher of the Year!
