Monday Memo MAY 2
This week's Wyatt h APP enings~
TEACHER APPRECIATION WEEK!
Our PTA Parents are wowing us once again!!!! I hope you feel like royalty!
And here's the plan from our wonderful PTA:
Teachers will enjoy Einstein's bagels and orange juice. And to give teachers extra energy throughout the day, the lounge will be stocked with K-cups, flavored creamers and cokes! Look for small treat in mailbox!
Take & Bake Tuesday
Dinner is on us! Teachers will stop by the cafeteria to pick up a large take & bake Papa Murphy's pizza and salad! And a little something in your mailbox! LOTS OF HUGS FROM THE KIDLETS TODAY!
Lunch is on us! Teachers will enjoy a full hour offsite lunch at Verona Italian Restaurant. Our amazing parent volunteers will cover lunch duty and recess. Look for a little treat in your mailbox!
Day 1 of our teacher's relaxation station - 10 minute chair massage! Also, a small treat in your mailbox!
Day 2 of our relaxation station - 10 minute chair massages continue. Since the week is over, our teachers can make it a movie night with a Redbox gift set!
This is sure to be a memorable week!
As you know, it's difficult for some to express how they feel about the school year coming to an end. Our 5th graders will not only be saying good-bye to the fabulous 5th grade team but to all of you who have taught them over the years... that is really difficult for some. So, just take a deep breath and count to 10 before you react to outwardly naughty behavior.
As much as possible, try to keep your routines, but make time to listen to your students every day!
SAFETY AUDIT - 1st Week of May
This is just a reminder in case you didn't check these things last week. If every teacher does this, we will pass our audit with flying colors! Pod doors and main hallway doors should be set to lock, fire maps and the Standard Response Protocol signs are in sight and not covered up/blocked.
The Bond Election- LOW VOTER TURN-OUT SO FAR!
Please do what you can to rally support for our Bond Election! There are several well-done videos that are relatively short that can be shared on social media - Here's one that makes a few common questions easy to understand!
Early voting ends on Tuesday, May 3, 2016
Monday, May 2, 2016 and Tuesday, May 3, 2016 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m
Please take advantage of all these opportunities to vote early!
LIBRARY! This is 'A' Week!
STUDENT COUNCIL ELECTION INFORMATION 3RD/4TH GRADE
On Wednesday, May 4, immediately after the announcements Kim will speak to 3rd and 4th graders about how to go about running for student council (All classes will sign off of announcements but 3rd and 4th will remain on)
Afterwards, she will place election packets in your hallways for students to pick up.
THEME FOR NEXT YEAR!
One thing that every teacher will need to do is to choose a professional goal to work on next year. I'm happy to say that this shouldn't be new to you, because we all did that this year! As you reflect on this year, spend some time brainstorming some areas that you would like to grow in professionally, put your list in a safe place, and you'll at least have some ideas when we start back next school year.
I am going to attach Domain 3 to an email rather than embed it in this memo.
