A word from Kris...

Kudos for all that you have done for our students and for each other!! Thank you for going above & beyond for our organization.


Don't forget to bring your envelope with your description of what you want your classroom to look like next semester to Leigh Ann!! ( I was supposed to collect them at the luncheon but I goofed!)


Katrina will have all our imprint items in the art room on Monday for you to take a time to stop and paint your creation. You can go as you wish!!!


Monday is a workday. The only thing that we have scheduled is that there is an option to attend the Dreambox session on either Monday or Tuesday at 4:00 - 4:30 so that you can begin using the resource. Other than that... you have time to get things accomplished.


Happy holidays & see you in 2016!

Winter Break!

Our winter break is beginning with early dismissal today and goes through Friday, January 1st. Monday, January 4th is a staff preparation day. Students return on Tuesday, January 2nd.


All holiday decorations should be taken down and put away before students return on Tuesday, January 5th.

Holiday Building Hours

The building will be open 7:30am to 4pm Monday through Wednesday next week and the week of New Years. The buildings are closed Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Years Eve and New Years Day.

Dreambox – Kindergarten – 5th grade Math Teachers

We have scheduled two Dreambox sessions here at Winborn so that you can choose one of the sessions to attend. A district Technology representative will be here to show you how you and the students are to log into Dreambox (since it will be different than last year), make sure you can log in and that all your students are on your roster, and to answer any questions you might have. These sessions are a come and go type of session. Come anytime during one of the two sessions. Please attend one of the sessions sometime during the time listed.

Dreambox sessions:

Location: Primary Computer Lab

· Monday, January 4th 2:00 – 3:00 p.m.

· Tuesday, January 5th 4:00 – 4:30 p.m.

Team Planning Days

All teams should select their team planning days for the 2nd semester during your planning and preparation time on Monday, January 4th. Each team will have 1 planning day per content area each semester. Please pick a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday, not a Monday or Friday. Each staff member must secure a sub before the absences are approved.

Please be mindful of holiday weeks and special events when selecting the date you'd like to plan. You can fill in the google doc below and then send an email to Leigh Ann so the calendar can be checked and the date can be approved by an administrator.

Again, while the date may be approved based on the calendar, the absences are not approved until subs have been secured.
