Kudos to. . .

  • Lori Lane for volunteering to stay with tutoring students because other teachers needed to leave to make it to their trainings on time.
  • You all for the in-depth look that you are taking into the needs of the students. We received several messages from people across campus that shared that they had an "aha!" moment while looking at data for a specific student! Keep it up!

News you need to know!

Thank you - Thank you for taking a few minutes to jot a quick note of appreciation to Mr. Fred Campos for School Board Appreciation month!

Thank you #2 - Thank you for making the adjustments needed to make sure that our Diagnostician receives the ARD Worksheet on time! This takes the effort of all involved with the student due to the time needed to collect the information, so Thank You!!!

Collaboration Mtgs. - Melissa is setting up collaboration mtgs. with various grade levels in the upcoming weeks. As we start these, please have patience as we adjust to this schedule. As various teachers collaborate together, we have some volunteers that are assisting with coverage for the classes. They will help get students to and/or from Fine Arts/P.E. if needed.

Arrival- Please make sure that you are at your assigned duty and/or at your door, greeting kids on time. Seeing you at your door to greet them when they arrive can make a student's morning that much better! This helps us all to make a smooth start to the morning arrival.

Reading 3D Testing Window - Melissa and Lisa will be involved with testing during this window. If you need assistance from one of them, please send them an email as they will not be able to respond on the walkie. Thanks!

Students in the Office Area - If a student needs to come to the Front Office, Workroom or to see Mrs. Evans, please remind them to use the Front Office door. Students should not be entering through the office hallway door because an adult is not always available to help them as needed. By entering through the Front Office, we avoid having students wandering around. Thanks for your help with this!
