May Staff Gathering

Our final staff gathering for the 2013/14 school year will be held on Tuesday at 3:30 pm in the library. The agenda can be found here. Let me know if you would like to add something to the agenda. Please bring your Focus book and your journal.

Reading assignment reminder: language arts teachers read - chapter 4, social studies teachers read - chapter 5, science teachers - chapter 6 and and math teacher - chapter 7. Pre-K-1 and "specials" you may choose which chapter you would like to read. This will allow us to get into "focus' groups during our staff gathering and finish the book study! Reflective questions for each chapter can be found here.

Playground Reminders

Please be sure to monitor students while on the playground very closely. It seems that many of the discipline referrals lately are coming from physical activity time. Duty teachers should be walking around while outside. Standing in one spot or sitting restricts visibility. Also, cell phones should only be used in case of an emergency while on duty. This can serve as a distraction and we all know what can happen in a split second. There was a recent abduction from a Springdale playground where the unthinkable happened to a 13 year old student. We must be observant and alert any time our students are outside.
