Middleton Memo

For the Week of 9/17/18 MARK is out all week

Big picture
Hey Everyone,

Sorry about the late memo. I hope you are all enjoying your weekend. If you're reading this right after I send it, don't worry, it can wait until Monday morning.

There are a couple of big things happening this week that I wanted to point out. We have our staff meeting on Tuesday. It is a jam packed agenda. Here is a rough outline of what we'll be discussing:

  • PE Shed
  • Boosterthon Fun Run
  • Rock Your School: Kindergarten Style!
  • Speaking and Listening Strategies

On Wednesday we have our Boosterthon Pep/Kick-off Assembly at specific grade level times. Each assembly will be about 20 minutes. Please make sure your class is seated by the start time so we can get going right away.

Thursday is "Rock Your School"! Expect to hear music in the morning and at lunches. I'm hoping to see some excited students.

Also on Thursday is our first PBIS meeting. This meeting is open to anyone who is interested. It's okay if you have not been trained. I would really like to see at least one grade level rep at the meeting. We need to be united in our expectations so it's important to have the perspectives of a variety of staff members to see how implementation may look different at each grade. After our initial meeting, most of the PBIS meetings can be accomplished in 30-45 minutes. They will be driven by data and the agenda will be focused.

We have a lot to discuss at this first meeting, but some of the agenda items will be:

  • Vision for PBIS at TBES
  • Playground Expectations- Seek clarity and understanding to get all staff on the same page
  • Citations and Data
  • Defining and Exploring Interventions to Support Student Behavior

On Friday, Mark and I will be out to continue our Data Driven Dialogue professional development. Soren will be in charge.

I'm looking forward to another great week with all of you!

Thanks for everything you do to make TBE a special place for our students.


Happy Birthday!!

We would like to wish Dawn a happy birthday who is celebrating her birthday on the 16th!

Happy belated birthday to Heather and Soren who celebrated last week!

Best wishes to you all on the year to come.
