Staff Smore

Special Reminders!!

Week of Oct. 2nd

Hello, Everyone.

This is a short week. We will have Teacher Excellence Day on Friday, Oct. 7th. It will be a wonderful opportunity to connect with teachers from other local Catholic schools, as well as get some valuable information for this year.

Chocolate money is due this week. Please remind your families to get it turned in asap. I can't wait to see the totals. I think we really outdid last year's fundraising on this one.

If you have anything for this week's staff meeting (I am planning to be there!!), please email Amparo. She is putting the agenda together. Thanks!

Have a wonderful week!

With Blessings,

Annual Fund - Have you donated????????

I am asking the staff to contribute to the Annual Fund this year. It began last week and will go until November. I would really like to have 100% staff participation. The donation amount does not amount is too small. Really!! Please just donate to this important campaign. You may pay through the office, visit Sarah in her new office (Kelly's old office), or go online to and click on the "Donate Now" link. I will also put envelopes in your mailbox, in case you want to put cash or a check in there. Thank you for your support!!

Lesson Plans, Observations, Goals...

Due to problems with the Teachscape software, we did not make it in to the rooms last week. Hopefully, this week will be different!

All teachers should be doing weekly lesson plans. If you are using an online lesson planbook, please share it out to Amparo and me. This is the easiest was for all of us to be on the same page. If you are handwriting your lesson plans, please give Amparo a copy by Tuesday morning. Beginning this week, we will be coming in to the classrooms to start doing the IPad observations. If we enter with the IPads, you can just ignore us. Just a reminder...the observations are based on Charlotte Danielson's framework. At the staff meeting, I will also talk with you about establishing your professional goals for the year.
