Grade Level Meeting Focus
(Paraprofessionals and support staff received a paper form for goal setting and those were also due to your appraiser last Friday.)
Soon, we will begin conducting formal walkthroughs in TNL. The walkthrough form has changed this year, and I am supposed to be getting more information about this at REV on Wednesday. Emily and I will update you and go over this in more detail soon! :)
A Message From Mrs. Skinner with XPlore
Please forward any parent communication to me regarding changes in transportation home/anticipated absences if your student regularly attends XPlore. I can reply to the parent directly to remind them to CC me on future emails. Thank you!
Students must report to the café for attendance/check-in by 3:00 each day. If you have a request for student help (class job, etc), please email me directly so I am aware and can gain parent permission. Students can check in and then return to you for their job. It’s an XPlore program policy that students may not assist staff during program hours without parent permission. Thank you for your support!
