What Really Matters?
A Word from the Principal
Teachers thank you for a great week! You have done a great job of setting expectations and reviewing procedures with your students. Please be sure you are planning accordingly to arrive at related arts and pick up from related arts on time. There is no time in between pick-up and drop off so please be on time. Please also be on time for lunch to ensure a smooth flow. We are working through dismissal procedures. Please make sure your students are ready to leave when their mode of transportation is announced. We will monitor and adjust throughout the week if necessary.
Question of the Week: What are the things that stand between you and complete happiness?
Textbook Information- IMPORTANT!!
We will begin checking all math and ELA books out to our students next week.
Science and SS are consumable workbooks. If a student moves, please make sure you hold on to their workbooks so we can let a new student use them.
Please make sure all books (not workbooks) are ready to be scanned out. Ready means that Mr. Thorne can get to them easily and he will know who to check them out to even if you aren’t there. :) You can stack them on student desks or in cubbies. Just make sure the students’ names are already in them or you have a post-it note on top of the stack of books so we can assign them to the correct student.
Do not allow students to write their names in books. An adult needs to do it with pen and both first and last names need to be recorded.
If you need more of any books, please check with your team members first because some students were “no shows” and there may be extra books in your team members’ room.
If you still need books please use the TEXTBOOK REQUEST LINK HERE: http://tinyurl.com/km2op4d

Weekly Progress Reports
I put them in your mailboxes on Thursday. Please send these home each Thursday with all graded work. Remember, THURSDAY IS OUR COMMUNICATION DAY.
We hope that this strategy will help parents to return things more quickly and avoid the tendency for things to get lost over the weekend.
