Hill Elementary School ~ Sept. 28, 2015

Need 2 Know...Info/Reminders

- Siple has their kick-off for Watch Dogs Tuesday evening. A few of us will be attending to see the kick-off in action. Feel free to come out. It's from 6:30-7:30 at Siple!

- The balanced calendar committee will be meeting tomorrow morning. If you haven't had a chance to look at the chart paper in the lounge, please do so and add anything else that you feel we may have missed or not considered regarding intersession.

-We sent a note home on Friday to families with a reminder about early release dates and also included a revised 2015-16 calendar. Please include the early release dates/times in your next newsletter as another reminder.

A little bit of PD.....

Student Goal Setting document

I participate in a Twitter Chat on Monday evenings and last week's topic was student portfolios. There was a lot of discussion on digital portfolios as well. I'm including a few articles and a google doc (below) that a member of my PLN (Professional Learning Network) shared. I hope that you will find the information useful!

A few of the GREAT things that I noticed last week...

-I received 8 positive office referrals last week! Thank you Jeane, Julie, Linda, Jodi, and Leigh Anne for taking the time to write up some kiddos who are doing great things!

-I noticed a lot of school spirit throughout the week. It looked like students and staff had a great time participating in spirit week!

-Kudos to Carlie Richardson for doing such a wonderful job student teaching with Linda. Linda was out on Friday and Carlie did a fantastic job leading the way! Good work!

-Nice work Tracy Bennett and Crew! After School clubs started last week and students are enjoying a plethora of activities such as karaoke, fusing beads, junk art, fitness, and legos. Hill Heroes love their after school clubs!
