Principal Passage...

Colleagues,


Thanks to all the staff members that showed up on a rainy morning to support the district initiative to Stand Up against bullying. It may have been gray but our smiles brightened up the morning.


Progress reports to go out this Tuesday, 10/13. This will be the last progress report before report cards. Perhaps to determine if a PEP is on the radar for your students.


Fall Fest is just two weeks away! This is the PTA's biggetst fundraiser. Look for a letter from Jessica Himebauch, 2015 Fall Fest Raffle Chair in your boxes on Monday with good detail on the process.


Colonial Life representative acknowledges that he is not here for some afternoon planning times. He offered to talk with you over the phone or ask someone in office to cover your class so you can meet on Nov. 18th. He apologized for the inconvenience.


Still have a ticket. I have a ticket to the high school mass band performance - Jamboree on 10/12 at West Forsyth. I cannot attend. I would like to give it to someone that might be going - just email me.

I hope our initial feedback is useful. I know the process will attune us all to instructional planning and design. Do let your assigned reviewer know what day your grade-level decided on for turning in or having them up-to-date if online.
