The Weekly Hoot

July 15-21, 2013

Greetings All -

As I type this, I realize in less than a month all of you will be back! These summers seem to go by so quickly!

Sorry this is late this week, but we have been busy with 5th grade student promotion/retention meetings here on campus. It has been a tough couple of days, and after some meetings, I was completely emotionally spent. I am glad we have met with all of the parents and students, and everyone knows what is ahead of them for next year.

Christy and I are busy finalizing the master schedule. If you haven't sent me your intervention time, please do so. We might have to change lunch and recess times just a hair because I didn't realize I had 1st grade going to recess at 10:20, which would mean a teacher having to eat at 10:20. No one wants to do that I am sure! I will send out finalized schedules shortly.

If you have not gone in and updated your items on "Favorite Things" and "Can You Help Us Out", please do so quickly. I need to know some of these "Favorite Things" items before the beginning of school (hint! hint!).

Gloria and Raquel have finished the floors in the school so you are free to come up whenever. I have seen several teachers already. It's nice to have life back in the building!!

Within the next week or two, I will be sending out a schedule of our teacher inservice for August. Please be looking for that as well as an invitation to our "get together" on August 9th.

I hope all of you have a great rest of the week!

Soaring with you this year,
