Chapman Staff Update

November 3, 2019

Week 10:

Good MORNING! Hopefully you were able to take advantage of the extra hour that we were given this morning... and that you were not super early for an appointment or church because you forgot :) We talk a lot about self-care and I was determined to "practice what I preach" and was able to take Saturday and drive to the west side of the state (actually Nicklas drove... that was NOT the self-care part!) to spend time with family and friends and have a girl's day filled with fashion shows, free giveaways, and some shopping. This truly was a day that I needed and filled my bucket to tackle this upcoming busy week. Make sure you take these moments for yourself! You give so much of yourself throughout the week, that it is important to "refill" YOUR bucket.

Tuesday PD:

3rd - 5th Grade: SIS Math with Shannon

You should have received an email from Shannon outlining your schedule and materials you will need for your day. AND you are lucky enough to be able to stay at Chapman for the day!

Y5-2nd Grade: Literacy PD Day!

K-2 teachers will be working at their own buildings in the morning and then will scoot over to Weiss for the PM. Here is the outline of your day and the expectations for the time you are spending in your grade level and classrooms. Please email me what room you plan on meeting in so I can find you!

Special Teachers:

See Building Principal for Schedule

Special Education Team: Please meet in Riverview for your all-day PD. An email was sent with your agenda. Please let me know of you have any questions.

Wednesday SIS PD- Kdg and 1st grade SIS Training with Shannon at Stark

Staff Meeting Agenda: This is a working agenda. Please feel free to send me questions or concerns that may need to be addressed whole group. Thank you!

GoNoodle: Don't forget that we have GoNoodle and it is great for brain breaks and indoor recess activities. I get an activity report every month and we are low on the number of activities. Remember as part of our health grant, the majority of teachers need to be using GoNoodle on a regular basis. You can customize activities too!

Guidance Center: Sarah will be here every THURSDAY! She will be gathering information and scheduling groups since they will have to be run differently from last year with our lunch/recess schedule. We will send out that schedule ASAP. We are very lucky to have her- We are the only school she is working with this year :)

Morning Assistance: Please Actively Supervise once students enter the building at 8:25 AM


Indoor Recess: EEEEK! I don't want bad weather but we need to be prepared for it. Please make sure that you review indoor recess expectations AND have appropriate activities your class can participate in posted on the inside of your door. Remember you may not always have the same lunch monitor for indoor recess so we need the information in one spot. There may be times we can use the gymnasium but we will need to work our some procedures for that before we are able to do it.

E-BLAST and NEWSLETTER: Please Help! Please sign up for a month/week that you want to share what your class or grade have been learning. These E-blast items must be program/curriculum related and pictures should be included. This is your time to showcase your students to the community! The same idea applies to the newsletter. You are always welcome to send me items for the parent newsletters but I have created a schedule for everyone. Families love to see what their children are doing at school and love pictures. This way I will always have a grade level or activity to showcase in the building every week. Here is the link to the schedule:

Please do not hesitate to ask question if you have them.
