Monday Memo

Week of May 2


The first week in May gives us a chance to stop and reflect on all the awesome ways our teachers impact the students in their classrooms. I really appreciate every one of you and the effort you have put into our STEM Units of Study and the technology being used in the classrooms. You all have worked very hard this year and I know our students are the ones benefitting from it! Thank you so much for all you do!

This week begins our first Twitter challenge! Today you need to make sure you have a Twitter account, change your egg to a picture and tweet #HCPSTeach. It was so awesome to see 30+ teachers learn the Twitter lingo at last Monday's PD.

This week also begins specials testing. Please be on time and make sure you know where to bring your students for testing.

3rd grade will not have music on Wednesday due to the 4th grade field trip to the Straz Center. Please pick up and drop students off for PE only on Wednesday.

We will have a small group faculty meeting tomorrow to go over end of the year information. We will meet in UC Media center. Please be on time. LC 3rd grade should attend this meeting.
