To Do...

*Salary Verification- Every employee received a salary verification email on Thursday. It is important that you check your salary each year to ensure you got your step for experience, etc. It is especially important for new hires, especially new hires with experience. If you are a new hire with experience the salary level should be on the correct experience step. If not, your old district may not have sent in your service record. Teacher salary scales/steps for 16/17 can be found here


*An Employee Information Sheet has been placed in your box this week. Please complete/correct any information on the form, sign/date it at the bottom, and return to Jacque by Wednesday, September 21.


*Please be planning with your team for Open House, September 27th, 5:30-6:30pm.


*During our week of staff development teachers were asked how they are targeting vocabulary this year. This was in relation to the article and the training on vocabulary. We need the plans from each team/subject area as to how you are targeting vocabulary this school year. The general plans are due to Becky and Lenay by October 14th.

Reminders

*We have ordered several Ipad stands for check out. These stands are good for recording lessons or using as a type of document camera. Please see Kathy if you want to check a stand out or see how one works.


*This year we will offer Papa Murphys Pizza ordering on the afternoons that we have staff meetings. Kari T. will place an order form in your box if you wish to order for the 20th.

Shout Outs

As described by you....


"Shout out to Carla Bustamante for being a team player who jumped right in and helped the front office with Inclement Dismissal."


Monica Cupp had many people to thank for this week while she was out. People stepped up to help with class coverage, securing a sub, TTM, Science Labs, gathering math and social studies materials, and helping with StuCo. Monica states, "People are amazing, just amazing."


If you have shout outs for a staff member, email them to me before Friday at noon and I will include them in our newsletter.
