Paraprofessionals: Meet in the computer lab at 1:00 to complete oath for Mrs. Schwab.

-With student-led conferences coming up, please make sure to update your bulletin boards (if you haven't yet) and incorporate Leader in me vocabulary with student work. TY!

-(2/1 Email from Katina) Due to changes made to our library coverage time, our Flex Check Out will now be from 9:30-10:30. Mrs. Petzold will not be in the library during the original set flex times, so adjustments needed to be made. Only students who can independently check out should be sent for flex checkout. If students who are sent show independence, more availability to flex check out may be possible in the future.

-(2/5 email from K. Schwab) Welcome to the spring semester…also known as the testing semester. I have attached the general test security training presentation. Please take time to view the slides and then print and sign the oath at the end. If you have difficulty printing the oath, please let me know and I have blank ones available for you to sign. For whatever reason, testing services recommends that you use internet explorer to view this presentation. Please return your oaths to my box by February 12th . If everyone completes this general security training online it will help our face to face training go a little faster, thank you in advance for taking care of this!
