What's happening

I am trying something new. Love some feedback on it.


The sidewalk around the A pod, the small playground, and the sidewalk out to the playground from the A pod will be getting some updating. The cement and sidewalks are being repaired for more appropriate access to the building. They are going to try to do some of the work on the weekend. However, there may be sometimes we have to block off access to those spaces. We will let you when or if that happens.


Conferences and report cards: I know you all had a terrifically full, exhausting, busy, overwhelming week, weekend and previous week. Please leave early on Friday, if you can. As a small, small, small stress reliever, please wear jeans next week.


Next week is the fall festival so mark your calendars.


We still can use some volunteers to help with day care for our parent education night. A $25 gift card is a small way to say thank you. Boone, PTA and the church are sponsoring a talk on fiscal responsibility.


PPfT-Don't forget that the "classroom visits" we are doing are not a part of your "observation". The way we are using them is a pre visit to the observation. We are trying to share ideas for "taking it to the next level". Ideas you can consider for the official observation. PDAS was different. We did not do pre walk throughs before the 45 minute observation. Walk throughs could positively or reversely impact your scores on the domains. The visits are intended to support. Remember, we can do more than 3 classroom visits for the year.


Gardening club-Thank you to the Boone staff who are joining Jennifer, Kareen and Kirsten with the gardening club. It was a huge hit yesterday.


Technology refresh-We were given more money to purchase new devices due to our large increase in enrollment. We have 4 companies and platforms to choose from. If you are interesting in weighing in on which ones to choose, please let Stephanie know. You can find the options we have on the AISD tech website under the 2013 Bond Refresh and under devices. I want to make sure we get as many as possible for the best use of our money.
