Music Therapy

In case this is imformative to your classroom & work...

I am starting a 2-wk series in the Music Therapy classroom that aligns with our SEL. Here is a link to a video you may share with your students. Team One students are discussing how to be respectful and what that means. How does this relate to you and your students?

Flu Shot Verification

If anyone needs a form for verification for the FLU shot Linda has the form to complete in the HEALTH OFFICE. People have asked for verification to add to Vitality for the points and or to send to their clinic for record keeping.

Video Links

If you liked the videos that were linked in last year's Monday Morning Memos, here is a whole list of them that you could use with your advisory.


If you have additional Youtube or TedTalk videos that you think would be good to share with T Plus staff let me know and we can add them to our Monday Morning Memos.

Student and Staff Surveys Coming Up


Please note that two different surveys will be coming up in November and early December.


One is the district-wide Student Survey, which all teachers need to have at least one of their classes complete. The other survey is the 5E (5 Essentials) Survey, which all students AND staff complete (it is about school climate).


Stay tuned for more details about our plan for these district-required surveys in the coming weeks and note that some class time will be needed for students to complete the surveys.

End of the Quarter

Next Wednesday, November 1st is the last day of Quarter 1. Please remember to enter your grades in Gradebook by the end of the day on Monday, November 6th! Instructions for entering grades are Here. Please remember TPlus courses are graded CR or NC.


If you have an IEP that has been in place for greater than 30 days you should be doing a progress summary report in addition to grades.

Internship Opportunity

There is an exciting internship opportunity coming up for Native students. MIGIZI Green Jobs Pathway is a 10 week paid internship specifically for Native students where they can learn about and get experience in the field of green jobs. Please share this information with students and post the attached flyer and informational document in your rooms!


Spring Semester Scheduling

Believe it or not, it's time to start thinking about thinking about spring semester scheduling! The scheduling committee has developed the spring semester master schedule and this means the next step is getting student course registration sheets completed. I am hoping to have the course registration sheets in case manager's hands by the end of this week on Friday, November 3rd. Completed course request forms would then be due back to me by the end of the day on Tuesday, November 21st (the last school day before Thanksgiving break) to allow enough time for student schedules to be entered in the computer system.


There will be two different course request forms used for spring course registration this time around. One form is identical to the one used in the past and the other, new one is to be used with only full-time students who are here in the building Monday-Friday, periods 1-6. A draft of the new course request form for full-time students as well as a directions for the new form are attached. I will be placing physical copies of both course registration forms as well as the directions for the new form in mailboxes by this Friday. Please do not print and use the attached new form yet as it is still being finalized.
