Again, thank you, and have a wonderful weekend!
Please turn in your institute evaluation on Monday if you haven't done so already. The folder is on Cathy's desk & also contains extra blank forms.
Please review the Memo to stay current on building parent communication!
Are you using the FLIGHT think sheet with your students? If so, please put a copy of the completed Think Sheet in Kathy's mail tray when you use them. This helps identify trends or individuals with concerns.
