There are no current updates or information regarding upcoming testing. :-)

Textbook Gaylord Information

They will begin shipping out Gaylords next week. When we receive our Gaylord, ONLY the items listed may go inside:

Grades 3-4 Social Studies

Grade 6 Social Studies

Art Grades K-6 (Teacher may keep one copy)

Music Grades K-6 (Teacher may keep one copy)

K-5 USED Envision and Investigation Math Consumables

Grade 6 USED Math Consumables

Grade 5 Social Studies will not go inside of the Gaylord. In addition, you may not fill the Gaylord with library materials, random teacher materials, unused or gently used consumable math workbooks, or any other materials other than those listed above. Before any books are placed inside of the Gaylord, you will need to get with Clarence, so that he knows exactly what you are placing inside of the Gaylord and how many of that item you are placing inside. He will give you a sheet to fill out with this information.

Kudos to. . .

  • Melissa Hassell and Lisa Evans for all of their help in setting up great events for Teacher Appreciation week!!!
  • The secret helpers that cleaned up the Lounge after our Appetizer Luncheon on Wednesday! Thank you!!!!!
  • David and Rosa for saving the Baked Ziti when Shannon forgot to take it home to bring back on Wednesday! They figured out how to get it safely in the fridge for us to be able to continue to enjoy!
  • The Shady Brook Family. . .across the campus over the past few weeks I have witnessed staff members helping each other left and right. I know for a fact that this has a huge impact on others. Thank you for all that you do!
