Most elementary staff will participate in Sheltered Instruction (like SIOP) in order to review and remind us of important strategies to assist our English Language Learners. Many of you have expressed an interest in this training in your goals.


This week, let's send hugs of appreciation to Sarah by email, note, or card!

Sarah, we appreciate all you do for the students and staff of Hajek Elementary!

From Candice: I wanted to say thank you to those who called and text to check on me while I was recovering from surgery. Thanks to my team for helping out when I was a week later than I thought for returning. A special thanks to Toni for covering me on morning pictures and to Heather Nivens for being a great team lead and stepping in to help get all my kids reading level test done and to Melanie for helping me fill in the TPRI forms.

Sharon, thank you for stepping up and stepping in yet again! You are so appreciated!

Thank you, 3rd grade for your flexibility!

Thank you, Jana and Debbie, for your love, friendship, and caring.

Thank you, Melanie, Cindy B, and Stacie K, for the flexibility and understanding

Thank you, Jana, for all you do to go above and beyond for students and teachers
