Weekly Launch

April 2-6


Please remember to vote for Volunteer of the year.

Don't forget to complete your Teacher Self Report

Please make meeting with your small groups a priority from now until the end of the year. We need to take advantage of every moment we have from now until the end of the year.

We are looking for a volunteer to take over our Volunteer breakfast. Please let me know if you would be interested in taking this on. We are planning on doing it exactly like last year!

Please remind your students that we will be having a special visitor on Friday for our NSOC visit. She will be visiting classrooms, talking with a student and teacher panel and getting a tour of the building. Please take some time to check out the hallways and restaple bulletin boards and make sure that things on the walls are timely. Also, look around your room and look for evidence of character in your classroom and make sure it is up to date also.
