CKE Monday Notes

"If It's to Be, It's Up to Me"

Red House Party - THIS THURSDAY!

The Red Team won the second eight weeks house party. Way to go Red Team! Everyone should have received an updated list of red house members from Mrs. Hipp, Thanks Carmon! The party will began at 1:00 in the gym on Thursday afternoon. We will call when we are ready to release students. This is a fun reward for our students so let's have some fun red team!

Entering Grades in Infinite Campus

We would ask that everyone do your best to enter some grades into IC weekly. Being a former teacher I know how grades can pile up quickly but please do your best to keep grades up to date so that parents can be more informed on the portal of their child's grade in your class. By grades being entered at report card time it is a little too late to contact teachers about grades. As a parent I like to know what's going on with grades. Our kids may not always want us to but it's nice to know when they don't always tell you! : )

Monthly Attendance Update

CKE Faculty & Staff Attendance for 2015-2016:
SEPTEMBER - 78% of staff present 100%
OCTOBER - 67%
NOVEMBER - 65%
DECEMBER - 65%
JANUARY - 70%
We get a breakdown of faculty and staff attendance monthly from Dr. Reed comparing all of the schools and we are generally one of the lowest. We are currently in the process of tabulating our "Golden Tickets" and will have it updated very soon. With attendance in mind, we would ask that you please try and schedule appointments as late in the day as possible or during breaks from school. Having to pull folks to cover classes is getting very difficult. We do our best to accommodate everyone but we are finding ourselves in a jam almost daily. We appreciate your help with this request.

Differentiation Plans

Overall, we are seeing differentiation plans develop well. However, we need more detail from some folks. We need more information on activities implemented and specific students who are working at each level. You are including student names on your needs based plans but they need to be identified on your differentiation plans as well. Come next year when you review your plans the detail may very well be advantageous.
