News of Note

Kindergarten Orientation: Kindergarten Orientation will take place May 9th. Parents will arrive in the morning and attend an orientation session in the gym while new kindergarten students will visit kindergarten classrooms. The event lasts from 9:30-10:45, but parents will arrive early. Please greet parents with a friendly "PUE" welcome, and help as you are able. It should be an exciting event!


This Thursday our staff meeting will focus on how to review student data, how to use standards reporting to inform instructional practices, and how to create assignments with Dreambox. PLEASE bring your laptop and hopefully lots student data. Is there anything else that YOU would like Dreambox trainer Stacey Shumake to cover? If so please email Kevin ASAP. Thanks.


School Maintenance: If you have anything in your classroom that is broken, or you notice something around the school that needs a-fixin', please email Lara and/or Henry. They haven't bugged the folks over in Cary enough this month (with the floor waxing etc...) and we don't want them to get complacent :-)


EVAAS Teacher Verification of their class rosters continues this week and is due May 19. Please get with your supporting staff to corroborate on the percentage of time in the general ed. classroom and the time involved with a pullout classroom (Intervention with Peggy Blocker (Reading), Special Education and Heather Shipley-AIGReading and/or Math) staff that teach Reading and/or Math). If you have any questions please alert Kevin well in advance so that you can complete your roster percentages accurately. Please look to veterans on you team to assist in the process, also.
