"NUTS AND BOLTS" NOTES

Brightbytes Survey

Earlier this week, Rachel Yurk sent a reminder about filling out the staff technology survey. As of Wednesday, the elementary schools had not reached statistically significant responses from staff. The survey window was scheduled to close on Friday, November 13. The tech department was going to extend the window by a few days. Please fill out the survey at your earliest convenience. Your response is important to us! Use the link below to access the survey. Thanks in advance for your participation.

Faculty Meeting

Due to Parent/Teacher conferences, we will be re-scheduling the Faculty meeting that was scheduled for Thursday, November 19 (this was a suggestion from a couple of your fellow teachers - good thinking!). I would like to re-schedule the meeting for Tuesday, December 1. Please let me know if you have a conflict on that date right away. Additionally, we will cancel the combined grade level meeting for November 24 due to conferences the night before. Thank you for your hard work on conferences and for your flexibility!

MLP Reminders

Just a friendly reminder - if you have not yet submitted your survey growth plan or SLO Form, please do so at your earliest convenience. In addition, if you are in your summative year, please schedule a time to meet with me regarding your SLO. Thanks for your efforts!

SPOTLIGHT OF THE WEEK

Thorson's Annual Veterans Day Assembly

Our annual Veteran's Day Assembly was a huge success! Thank you to Judy Plaster for all of her hard work on this program. Of course, we also thank all teachers and staff for their support, help, and flexibility. What a great way to come together as a community to honor those who serve our country!
