Discipline - Thank you for submitting referrals prior to sending a student to the office. Also, sometimes a referral is submitted just for documentation purposes. Please make sure you let us know if you are just documenting or if you are wanting an administrator to get involved.

Positive Referral - I have created a positive referral form for you to use when you would like to recognize a student for something AWESOME they've done. I will put a few copies in each of your boxes tomorrow. When you are ready to submit one, please turn it in the box outside of my office. Once you run out of forms, you can find it here:

Textbooks - I appreciate you all updating your textbook quantities in Google Docs. Please continue to do so if you exchange books with a teammate. If you are needing more books, please compile ONE email per grade level with all of your textbook requests (only specify the exact amount of books you are lacking).

Need Help with Running Records?

Our reading interventionists, Cathy Thompson and Elaine Delgado, and our AP, Mrs. Smith, are available if you need a refresher in how to do Running Records (they would be happy to schedule a time after school). We'll be using running records, last year's EOY ISIP data, and a preponderance of data to place students on reading tiers.

Here is the link to the Google Doc that allows you to track your students' running record data:

Jeff's Corner

One of the books assistant principals are reading this year is Mindset, by Carol Dweck. It is not a new program or "thing" to do--- it is a glimpse into ourselves and how we have grown accustomed to doing and thinking about things. In a few brief minutes, it shifted me to looking at things differently. I encourage you to take less than 3 minutes and check the video link that introduces this. It's worth it!

"I can do things you cannot; you can do things I cannot. Together we can do great things." Mother Teresa

Have a great week!!!
