A Message from Jen

Team,

  • Happy Mothers' Day to all of the moms out there! Hope you had a great day with family!
  • Congrats to Laken (and any other runners I didn't know about) who completed the Mini Marathon on Saturday!
  • I hope you had a wonderful Staff Appreciation Week and felt totally spoiled. We have a wonderful PTO, so if you have the opportunity, please jot them a quick note of thanks.
  • It is Relay for Life Spirit Week! Lynne and team have worked hard to prepare for a successful week. Each of the spirit days is included in the calendar below. You are welcome to dress more casually as you participate in the spirit days!
  • On Tuesday morning, we will have our last staff meeting of the year. We will meet in the cafeteria and breakfast will be provided, so come hungry! Dr. Robison will be in attendance as we review our Insight X Survey data, We will also talk about celebrations from the year, standards based reporting, and plans for the upcoming year.
  • Look for an email this week about our schedule for class placement meetings. Also, in response to the suggestion of the Literacy PLC, I will send out an email about cross-grade level meetings to support vertical articulation and planning for next year.
  • On Monday, I will have 2 fourth grade girls with me throughout the day for Principal for a Day. I am going to take advantage of having two helpers and will be knocking out some tasks, including working on an appreciation video for our PTO volunteers. On recess at Monday, you may see us out recording students. We might even ask you to say a few words too!

Have a great week!

Jen
