Eastlake High School 8.12.19
Thank you for a great week of school spirit. I was so proud of our school and amazed by all of our awesome students and staff. Last week reminded me of why I love high school so much. It was pure fun. As we get ready for Open house this week, let's focus on some key reminders for the week:
A. Training. Please let us know if you have not received the Blood Borne Pathogen and/or Sexual Harassment training. Also, the Mandated Reporter Online training is due by August 23rd. We will conduct the Appropriate Boundaries Training at our August Faculty Meeting. Time is supposed to be afforded via Pro Hours to complete the online training. Please work with your departments to accommodate the time needed.
B. FAC Notes. You received FAC notes from Terri Hass-Zielinski this week. There was a lot to digest there, but we listened with intent to all concerns and advice. Here is a LINK to record your concerns about any operational issues in your classroom or the school. I am going to follow up on the bell ringing earlier in the morning (7:38). We will also start out new process for late students where they will report to the side gate instead of going through the front office.
C. Observation Schedule. We are committed to getting out to classes. Here is the schedule of our observations. Please hold us accountable. We have agreed to ask students What they are learning, How they will show they have learned and Why it's important. We start this week!
D. Junior Talk. I will be passing by this week to US History to say hello to the Juniors. Should not be more than a few minutes.
E. Titan Way Pins Update. We are ordering 10 pins for each teacher to give out as they please. The students really want the pin, so let's make it happen. Here is a LINK to report the student, so that I may call them out and give them a reward and call their parent. We will give out the pins at the next faculty meeting. So, give out your first pin this month! Add as needed.
Have a great week Titans. Can't wait to see you all in action. Go Titans!

I care deeply about the staff. We give so much of ourselves to our students and parents. Take time for balance.
