Nuts and Bolts

  • State Testing: There are 5 testing days remaining. I'll finish the 5-7 who need to complete Math on Monday from 9:30-10:30. On Tuesday, the eight 5th graders who need to retake Science will start testing.

  • Evaluation/Growth Goal Meetings: Please make sure to have your growth goals form complete prior to our meeting. The form is located in Perform. If you have any questions, please stop by. If you are an off-cycle licensed staff, you will complete your growth goal form in Perform and you are done. I look forward to our meetings.

  • End of School Year: For our students who view you and FV as their best and safest place, they have/might/will struggle as the year comes to a close. Its human to get frustrated by their actions. Please do your/our best to remember that these 6-12 year olds needs us even more now. I encourage all of us to give an extra smile, pat on the back to our students who you know are struggling. The video below speaks directly to this (Which students need some flowers?). Thank you for being amazing role-models to our students/families!

  • North Parking Lot Pick-Up: I'll know by Wednesday whether the fence will be up in time. If not, we still might try a plan B just to see how it works. Our observations will be helpful for next fall.

  • End of Year Check Out Forms: Susan will have them in your boxes on Wednesday.

  • Cafeteria Noise: The Boosters and facilities will be working together this summer to install noise reduction materials in the cafeteria.

  • 2016-17 Schedule Committee: Please let me know if you are interested in being on the schedule committee. I would like to meet this Wednesday at 3:00 until ?.

Shout Outs

  • Kathy is a one person show when it comes to our cafeteria. She only has 5.75 hours a day to prepare, serve, and then prepare for the next day. Her positive attitude and ability to make do with the limited time she has, is amazing!

  • I want to thank all you impacted by testing (whole school). You were flexible, supported one another and always did what was best for our the school and students during testing.

  • Observing TimiSue's small social groups is heartwarming. As TimiSue was facilitating a discussion on decision making, she asked "Do you ever hear my voice in your head when you are thinking about doing something?" One of the girls who has made significant progress this year looks up with her eyes wide and said; "oh yes." TimiSue's ability to challenge our at-risk students in a loving and caring way has given them a chance to show their best self.

  • Marcia's willingness to be flexible allows State testing to run smoothly. Thank you for your efforts! The finish line is here.

  • As I observed Danielle's class, I noticed how every second had a purpose to it and students always knew exactly what to do. If Danelle wasn't sure if they knew, she would say; "Thumbs up if you know exactly what to do." Having this sense of purpose and urgency keeps students engaged and on their toes.

  • As Teresia was teaching our 4th graders a song, she said; "You guys are being conductors now be more expressive!" As she moved her arms, more students, including some boys became more expressive. Sometimes, stating what you need is an effective strategy.

  • As I observed Daniel teaching our 3rd grade PE, I asked one of the students what they liked most about PE. His response; "Its fun and we are always running around." Daniel has done an exceptional job using activities that all students can participate in and show improvement in their skills.

  • Marcia, Karey, Alissa, Danielle, Shay, Susan, and Sarah are truly the jack of all trades (and the master of many) in our school. It doesn't matter whether they are working on academic support, social support, playground duty, before/after school duty, injuries, or any other student issue, they do it with a great attitude and expertise. Thank you!

Have a great week!
