Monday Meeting

The Monday Meeting is for certified staff only. We will spend time reflecting on this year's accomplishments and looking toward next year.

Notes and Reminders

  • Triple check that all student testing has been completed. The benchmarking period is closing. It is essential that each student is assessed during the benchmarking period in order to set ECRA projections.
  • Please encourage your students to swing by the lost and found to determine if anything is theirs. Items will be donated once school ends.
  • The end-of-year checklist will be sent out later this week.
  • Interested in a stipend position next year? Please let me know. Also, let me know if you're ready to give up your current stipend position. If I don't hear otherwise, I'm keeping the list the same as this year.
  • I will be checking our clustering Google doc often to determine the progress of building class lists for next year. Please let me know how I can support you throughout the process.
  • Please continue to maintain a normal routine. If you plan any end of year activity/celebration, please get my prior approval. Also, please review the building expectations often with students. Their memories of being respectful, responsible, and safe are failing.
  • In your weekly communication to parents, please continue to remind them to register for next school year (especially if the following grade level will potentially split).
