Glows and Grows

Glows: Wow. It is a bit overwhelming to think about what we accomplished this week. Over 700 students, arriving on our clean and prepared campus! Over 30 classrooms, bright and planned! Lots of smiles, cheers, hugs, and even a few tears and screams. Bravo

Thank you to Mr. Linnet and the K team for working to adjust our lunch routine to better serve our K students! Thank you to Ms. Baker for getting initial ELPAC testing up and running. Thanks to Sandi and Marisa for staying SOOO late each day to get everything done, including interviewing prospective attendance clerks.

Grows: Think about this: Ask your students "what questions do you have about _______" instead "are there any questions?" See what happens. What is their reaction?

Site Leadership

We are still short a few members for our leadership team. If you are interested, please reach out in person or via email. The support is appreciated. Thank you to those that have already agreed to help lead our campus.

Illuminate-CAASPP results

I am re-sharing information that Blake emailed two weeks ago. When you open Illuminate and go to reports, it has a tile for all of the different CAASPP reports that are available. Check it out below. Don't skip doing this because you are struggling to open to program. If you can't access it, let me know and I will help.

CAASPP Illuminate Reports

Random Stuff

1. Please continue to do your attendance ASAP. It helps greatly in completing the Warm Body Count in a timely fashion and it is good practice.

2. If you have collected all or most of your emergency cards/forms/etc., please feel free to bundle them together and return them to the main office. Please remember to write the teacher name in the top corner of the emergency card and to alphabetize the cards.

3. Thanks for your continued patience with our office staff. I anticipate filling the attendance clerk position by mid-month.
