Reminders

  • Forward emails regarding dismissal changes to both Karla and Renee.

  • Please remember to be at specials door :35 after to deliver & :30 to pick up.
  • Fridays --jeans with Ray-Pec spirit wear.
  • Classroom doors should be locked at all times and the magnet should be used to allow flow in and out of classrooms. However, we are aware there are some doors that are tricky to get to stay shut when using magnets. We do have a couple of other options we can try to help solve this problem. If you need help with this situation, please see Melissa asap and we will problem solve.
  • Remember to add your lesson plans to the Google RE Shared Folder each Monday by 8:25 a.m.

  • It is our district and building expectation that all staff reply to communication (email and phone calls) with within a 24 hour time frame.
  • If you have any pictures of great things going on in your classroom or family, please send them to Melissa. I would love to share with others in our Weekly Staff Update.
  • Call Jennika & Melissa if you're going to be unexpectedly absent (after 4 pm day before). 816-550-4434 and 816-868-9856
  • Call or text Jennika or Melissa if you will be in the building on the weekend! The lounge/workroom will be open for access to copiers.
  • Remember to check the RE Shared Calendar for events! We are still adding, and things change.
