End-Of-Year Expectations & Closeout

With less that three weeks left of school (and no, this isn't a countdown :), please ensure we plan meaningful and engaging lessons all up until 12pm, June 8th. I know we have a lot of end-of-year celebrations happening and I am excited about those, just be mindful of the types of learning environments we are creating for our students, and that every minute counts, even after EOGs. Behavior issues often arise at the end of May and into June, and most will agree that engaged minds are the best remedy to have a great closeout to the school year. Thanks for all that you do!

EOY Check List - the final set of directions and initial sheet will be sent out Monday or Tuesday of next week. Once you receive the checklist, let me know if you have any questions.

ALL Testing Materials Returned - Be mindful of all testing materials, and let's have a smooth finish to the year.

Congratulations, Danny White! 25 years of service to Cabarrus County Schools!
