News and Notes for the Madison Staff (10/2/15)

Faith's Walk-Thru Schedule for 10/14

In an effort to direct our guests to get into rooms and observe at the right time, I'd like you to fill out the linked schedule.

  • If you don't teach AM Math, feel free to "XX" it out or change your Wed schedule to allow guests to see your awesome instruction!
  • For ELA, you can have freedom of choice. Input your time for writing, guided reading or other differentiated facet of ELA.
  • It won't be perfect as we are unsure of the number of observers on the 14th, but I believe this will help.

21st Century Parent Communication App!

Ask Tori or Tom about it!

A Few Housekeeping Reminders

  • Please remember not to pull outside doors open with your key. We have pulled a few locks right out of the doors over the last couple years.
  • If you call a parent from a school phone, please leave a message. We receive many return phone calls from parents who do not know who at school was trying to reach them.
  • Door Wedges: If you are in K-3, ditch the door wedges as we move into heating season. We do not heat the hallways and its much like you leaving your front door open at home. If you are in 4-5, get ready to start using Door 5 or 11 for students to exit, enter.
