Important Updates/Reminders:

  • Test Administrators - please check to ensure all phones/smart watches (ask the students) are not in your testing location! This would be an automatic misadministration.

  • Testing on Friday went great! Thank you to everyone for moving quickly and getting started as soon as possible! Testing administrators, please be sure to pick up your materials between 7-7:30 in Mandy's room. You will need to count calculators so come earlier than Friday. If you need to count books and answer sheets too, please come closer to 7 than 7:30. As soon as your class is ready to start testing, please start! Let's shoot for no later than an 8:15 start time! Here is the login support document. Some log in support people have changed due to morning duties, so everyone please check it! If you are log in support and an administrator please check out your materials first then go and help your teacher. If you are an administrator with a morning duty, you can check out your materials when finished. Here is the proctor sheet for Wednesday's Math EOG. REMEMBER--Math has an estimated time of 120 minutes and a max time of 180 minutes, so this test should go more quickly! Let's have another smooth testing day!!

  • Remediation/Retesting: We will be in touch about how we may need you to help with this effort. This year we will only be providing remediation for reading for 4th/5th and 5th grade for Science. Readminister days are June 10th and 11th. We will keep teachers and staff posted about how we may need you to help!

  • EOY Celebrations: There are many grade level/classroom celebrations going on during the last days of school. If you are leaving your room, but expecting parents, please let front desk know so that we can receive parents with a smile and send them in the right direction.

  • Planning for 19-20: It is almost time for me to begin working with the district office on allotments for next year. Please let me know ASAP if you are planning to retire or resign so that I can plan accordingly for filling vacancies. Even if you are just considering a change it would still help to know. My goal is to give you information about next year as soon as possible and this information is always helpful when planning.

Please do not send out mass emails regarding other covering duty for you due to an absence/progressional development. We must have confirmed people out at car duty and we have been short several days due to no one answering the mass email and/or people not covering their duty. This is too important a time of day for us to hope someone sees the email and helps out. Please text a friend that doesn't have duty to switch with you and/or text Carla.
