And the winner is...

The votes are in! We will be having our staff meeting on the 14th after school instead of Post-planning. The votes were 24 to 14. Thank you to everyone that voted.


The good news is that your post-planning will be all yours, with the exception of the district luncheon.


We will begin our meeting promptly at 3:40pm as we have a lot to cover.

iReady....

Ms. Bagwell found a great video on how to interpret iReady student growth data. Click the link for details: http://embed.vidyard.com/share/mSy1E7kYqw6SuxFuVJgxGW


Also, after summer school, we will have approximately 80 student licenses for iReady Reading. If you are interested in having (piloting) iReady Reading in addition to math next year for your students, email me and let me know!

Be Somebody...

Please don't forget to vote for the Be Somebody Award. We will celebrate at the staff meeting on the 14th. You may choose one person from each team, but can only vote for ONE person on that team. Please cast all votes by this Wednesday.


Example: You may have two amazing paras in mind you want to vote for, but you can only vote for one.

Student Placement/Data Card reminders...

Just a reminder, data cards are due tomorrow! Please put cards in my mail box.


On May 8th, 9th, & 10th we will be meeting to build classes for students. We will try and pre-place students so the process will go easier during placement meeting days.

Teach updates and school MAP

Below are the teaching changes/updates for next year as well as the school map. I apologize it took so ling to get out. There is still one possible change to the map, but I will update you if that occurs.

Summer PD Update...

We are still waiting to hear if we received the grant for Capturing Kids Hearts. We probably will not know until the end of May. In order to ensure we still are offering the two days in July in exchange for a full week off in February, I would like to have a back up plan for PD.


Please talk to your team lead (or your new team lead) about your thoughts and ideas for PD options. We want to ensure we are gearing the PD to what you feel would be beneficial.

THRIVE

Summer School...

Thank you 3rd 4th, and EIP teachers for all you have done to get Summer School enrollment up!


We only need about 4 more 4th graders and 7 more 3rd graders to hit our "magic" number.


Thanks to all the hard work of the 1st and 2nd grade teachers, we now have a waiting list for 1st and 2nd graders. Great job team!!!

Staff Shout Outs...

2. Mrs. Renshaw

A huge shout out to Mrs. Renshaw for saving the day! Thank you for letting my class come to the Media Center to work while I had a meeting and had no one to cover. When I told you the situation, there was no hesitation on helping out. You really do whatever you can to help out the teachers, staff, and of course our kiddos. We are so lucky to have you!

3. 1st grade team

Thank you to all of the first grade team! Never once did I hear your kiddos in the hall while 3rd grade was testing. Thank you for keeping them quiet so our kiddos could focus and do their best on the Milestones! I know that was not an easy task, but I am so appreciative :)
