Housekeeping for the Week

Enjoy your time

  1. 19 days. I say rather than countdown because of negative reasons, you take the mindset that you only have 19 days to enjoy this school year. It's gone by quickly. We've accomplished a lot. As I stated three weeks ago, let's SPRINT over the finish line, rather than crawl.
  2. Send your volunteer names to Dorothy by the end of school on Monday! We'll make certain to get those invitations out to people on Thursday.
  3. Field Day Meeting on Monday--Folks, if you'd like to help Cynthia tie up any loose ends with field day and lend a hand, we'll be meeting at 3:00pm in the Media Center. That way, it will give those of you going to the shower a chance to party with Emily.
  4. Wednesday PD--We'll spend our time planning for next year in terms of vision and philosophy. We will not be planning this time around but please bring your laptops so that you can view the documents I'll have Shelly send your way. If you have some great building themes bring them with you.
  5. CSI Interrogators--When you catch a 5th grader in the hall, question them! Tanyka sent a list of questions to us last week. Have fun with it!
