The END of YEAR Staff Happenings
Week of June 8- June 12
Nuts and Bolts
NWEA Dog Tag Procedures and Parent Reports:
As we did last year, we will recognize the largest growth for each class with Dog Tags. I will be calling each grade level chair to announce their top three NWEA growth winners in each class. Teachers please give the chairs the information so they can announce. Please pick up your dog tags from Pam to present on Thursday. Please make sure that you send home reports with report card. You are welcome to use the parent friendly report kindergarten shared.
Summer School Positions
I will be doing summer school placements this week. We still have openings for Jumpstart if you are interested.
As part of the check out procedure you will need to sign out your laptop if you want to keep it over the summer. Pam will have the forms in the office. If you do not plan on taking your laptop you will need to turn it in to Pam and sign it in.
End of the Year Volunteers- Important
After receiving requests for volunteers under the age of 18, the Superintendent and the School Board have agreed that we will not allow students from districts outside of Hanover to volunteer at our school functions. I just wanted to let you know if you were asked, since it was just addressed at last week's Board Meeting. I know some of you were willing to have your own children come to help out, but we have to be consistent with the decision.
Summer PD conferences
I still have some room for the PUC inquiry Math workshops
Grades K-2 will be offered by Merrillville August 3-7 8am-11

Staff that served on the Assessment design team were automatically invited to participate.
Mary stated she would still like only one rep from each grade level. If we have additional slots we can make a list of interested staff and add them.
If you have questions or concerns please let me know.
Thank you to the Pam and Lori for CRAZY Friday! We had two field trips, the fire drill and K graduation! That was ALOT to handle. We value your hard work and patience!
Special Shout out to Tracy Lakomek, Janet Neitzel,Marcie and the title staff for getting all the IREAD testing worked out as well as documenting the scores in Google docs. They also helped get all the summer school letters out.
Congratulations to Tracy Lakomek who successfully wrote a grant to expand our Minds in Motion Curriculum.
