Monday Morning Message (2/8/2016)

Every Child - Everyday!

General Information

Good Morning Everyone! We have an EXTREMELY busy week this week (Do I say that every time?)! We have Mock Testing, a TEA Visit, ELA/SS Night, YLOD Date Night, and the usual everyday hustle. I want to take this time to thank you for all that you do for OUR students! In celebration of all that you do, I would like to have a mid-week jeans day tomorrow (2/9/2016)! If you are reading this, you will know about this. If not, you will ask me tomorrow in the hall after you miss out! Have a great week and I will see you around the halls!

Reminders & Information

  • Dress Code: Do not allow students to sit in your classroom out of dress code. If you allow them to bend this rule, they will attempt to bend others.
  • Time Clock - Remember to clock in and out each day. Missing a clock in or out once or twice is okay, but if it is a persistent problem it may affect your PDAS appraisal.
  • Please be at your door during transitions. If you are on your conference period please come out and help to monitor the hallways.
  • Remind your students to walk on the right side of the hallway during the passing periods.
  • Do not let students out of class without a pass that includes their name, destination, time, date. We are trying to reduce the amount of time that students are out of the classroom and we would like to be able to quickly determine where they should be.
  • Remind students of the "lending grant" chromebooks that we have that are available to check out and go home with them.
  • Remember to follow the discipline ladder with students in your classroom. Try different interventions and parent contact before sending a student to the office. If it is a level 3 offense, send them to the office immediately. If you have any questions, please ask Ms. Smith or Mr. Swacker.

Deadlines

  • Grades - Make sure that you are inputting 2 daily grades per week. The administrators will check on Tuesdays to verify grades have entered.
