September 19th - 23rd
Congrats to our newest NH family member! Corbin William Brown! Everyone is happy and healthy!
I don't want to jinx us, but it's looking like a calmer week. Not as much going on, no FULL moon, and just a brief University meeting on Thursday to configure our SBDM committees and set dates and times. :)
Food for thought?
Ripple Effect: The continuing or spreading effects of an event or action (can be positive or negative) - How is WHAT we are doing daily EFFECTING our end goals?
Are we asking for 1 thing and modeling another?
Are we setting an expectation and then failing on our follow through?
We have the power TOGETHER to make not just RIPPLES, but WAVES for these students with us today.
For the Good of All...
Retirement- Mr. Mike is retiring! His official last day as NH staff will be November 30th. However, he will be taking vacation for the month of November, so his last day with us will be October 31st. More information regarding our send off will be coming. Please make sure to congratulate him!
Cindy is out Monday and Tuesday,
RADIOs- THIS IS A MUST!!!!! PLEASE make sure that someone takes out the radio from D hallway to the playground. It's for the safety of EVERYONE.
End of Day SHOUT OUTS- In an effort to highlight great things and great people- please email me / send a note to the office by 3;15 of anyone you would like me to highlight on the dismissal announcements for good deeds "having Tiger SWAG" throughout the day. OR if you want me to "remind" students to "listen up" etc. - For example- "Mrs. Goble's class, I need you to listen up at the end of the day..." LOL.. they all think we're watching anyway! :)
Purchase Orders- If you intend on ordering anything - Purchase Order's are DUE THIS Thursday by 4:00. Next order date is October 5th.
New Haven Way- It is a very common thread among all staff that we are seeing a lack of respect and rule following. We will be working on a school wide acknowledgement program that we will roll out in a split assembly. (3-5) (k-2) once we get all the details and work with our team leaders. Just an FYI- we recognize it and will work to direct our kids to our expectations.
Growth Mindset - Below is a link that will share growth mindset resources and a list of Mindset Read-A-Louds- Some GREAT books to share with students.
High Attendance Day- High attendance day is September 20th- THIS TUESDAY. The classes with Perfect attendance will be receiving "PAWfect" bracelets! Please encourage perfect attendance and make note of this in your letters that your class wants perfect attendance!
Reflections- Thank you to those that have already submitted your reflections in CIITS. I've had the chance to read many of them this weekend. It really does give me an idea of how to support you and what to observe when I do walk throughs and evals.
Just an observation- Some have theirs "in progress" from August, so I'm not sure if you clicked submit when you were finished or if you are still in progress. You may want to double check. I've added a 2 minute video of how to get into your reflections once in Ciits.
PEER Observations- Sandy or I will need to know who is doing your PEER observation (if you need it this year- nontenured and summative years only) so that we can connect you in CIITS.
SpEd Monitoring- I will send out the samples of Monitoring forms and raw data collection in a separate email.
Walk-Throughs- Will be happening :)
Uploading Evidence for PGES- I've recorded a quick little "how to" get into your shared Google folder / upload evidence. It's about 2 minutes long, but gives you a quick visual if you are unsure. However- if you need help PLEASE holler. I'd be more than happy to sit with you and guide you through it.
