A School to Emulate

Memorial Elementary Bobcat Bulletin 2-29 through 3-4-16

Spring Break!!!

Spring Break is right around the corner and I can feel it in the air. The weather is playing tricks on us and some of the student behaviors are a bit more interesting than normal. Thank you in advance for your patience, extra love, and focus on instruction as we prepare for the break. If you are looking for creative ideas and strategies to help with student behaviors, check out this link on Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS) http://www.pbisworld.com/


Literacy Night and Open House is this Thursday! The theme is perfect, Rocking in my Reading Shoes. I love all types of shoes so why not add "Reading Shoes" to the bunch! I am hearing about the wonderful activities you have planned for our families to enjoy. To help you prepare, this Wednesdays Vertical Team meeting is optional. Vertical Team leaders are aware that they can offer this time to you for Literacy Night and Open House preparation.


Action Item: We all received an email from the Executive Director of Safety and Security to complete a survey for the district audit. The deadline in March 14th (the day we return from spring break). If you haven't already done so and would like to complete it prior to leaving for spring break, click the link.https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/PISDStaffSurvey


We have one more day of Saturday School, March 19th. Please be sure that families are aware.


I LOVE the student work displays. Thank you so much for taking the time to post!


Lastly, remember that "unknown" district personnel will enter the building using doors other than the main entrance. They will see how much of the building they can access before being addressed by staff and escorted to the main office. We got this!


Thanks everyone and let's have a great week! Spring Break will be here before we know it!

That's HILARIOUS! Send your funnies my way...

A 1st grade student lost his tooth. He was so excited. A staff member asked, "Did the tooth fairy come?" The student said, "Yes, and I got a pay out!"

Kudos

Elizabeth A. & Clara for being nominated for the district Superintendent Award! Michelle for helping to stitch patches on Boy Scout uniforms for students in need.
