Pride of the Tribe

Week of February 25, 2019

Don't Quit February!

February is often times a hard month for educators. We've got to dig deep. We've got to lift each other up. And, we've got to remember why we do what we do. The students need us more than many of us realize. We're not just showing up for work...We're showing up for kids.

Nuts & Bolts

  • Employee Dress Code - Please make sure tattoos are covered and that you are adhering to all parts of the employee dress code.

  • Tribe Time -
  1. Make sure you are pulling struggling students or students who are failing. Remember to schedule them into your sections before students are allowed to choose.
  2. Make sure all of your sections are structured. KIDS TALK!

  • Safety - Be Purposeful
  1. Know your pattern and what you would do in each location if we encountered a lockdown.
  2. Purposefully check exterior doors to make sure they are locked.
  3. Make sure visitors are wearing a visitors badge. If not, escort them to the office.

  • High-Risk Students - Please make sure subfolders indicate procedures for those students identified as high risk. You would have received an email identifying said student(s).

  • Technology Showcase - It is due February 28, 2019, by 4:30 pm. (Every certified teacher is required to participate.) It should be printed and given to Mrs. Nelson.
