Jane Ball Happenings

Shout Outs

Huge shout out to our Music teacher, Mallory Julian and Trista Mantel for a hugely successful Arts Night! The musical was amazing!

Special thanks to Bob, Jackie, Beth and Reasha for setting up and cleaning up!

Thanks to all staff that helped with the event!

Shout out to Tracey Lakomek and Janet Neitzel for supervising the ISTEP experience.

Teacher Evaluation Updates

I have begun doing the summative observations. Please be sure your preobservation form is complete in SFS. You will need to delete the one you did in the spring and be sure to hit submit on the bottom. If you need help in anyway please let me know. I realize with me doing the observations it may be difficult to set up time but please DONT be afraid to call my cell or meet with me after school hours (including spring break and weekends if you want!) Also I will be working on your PGP points starting this week to make sure we have them all awarded. Thank you for your patience as we work through this. If you have not signed up you will need to go through Lori from now on to arrange times for your observation and post conference. This is a busy time of year with Sped conference and last minute meetings as well. I will do my best NOT to change your planned observations but I appreciate your flexibility in the event an observation or conference needs to be changed.
