THINGS TO KNOW...

*Hope you all stayed high and dry over the past few days. As we return to work Monday, please take an opportunity to check in our your students and let Becky know of any needs. We will funnel them all through her to see how we can assist families in need.

*Academic Conference will be rescheduled and I will notify you of that when I hear.

*HRS Level 1 Certification will be Monday. Thank you to Angel Gomez, Kim Dooley, Hillary Soniat, Gina Godinez, Dena Green, Kara Saly, and Rachel Miller for being ready to "share our story" with Toby Boss on Monday and complete this process.

*Parent Information Night will be rescheduled. We will discuss it at faculty meeting today.

*Faculty Meeting is Monday. Second grade is responsible for snacks. We will be doing LPAC training as well as a few other housekeeping items.

*Wednesday is the Homecoming Parade. Remember to be out of the back parking lot by 4:00 or you will get stuck waiting on it to clear out for the parade. If you want to join us, Student Council will be riding on a float representing ORE!

*Picture Day - Start adding in your email notifications to parents that Friday, October 4 is Picture Day.

*Early Release/Storybook Character Day - Please include in all newsletters home that Early Release/Storybook Character Day is Friday, October 11.

SEPTEMBER SOCIAL

Reminder that our September Social is attending the ORHS Homecoming game as a faculty. We can all sit together and cheer on the ORHS football team and enjoy the half time Homecoming festivities. Your teacher badge gets you and immediate family members into the game free but you must enter at the northwest end of the stadium at the pass gate.

POSITIVITY PROJECT

PARLIAMENT OF OWLS

The poster resumes are AMAZING! I knew you were a talented bunch but you have out done yourselves. I'm so excited to hear the excitement about these teams that I"m hearing. I know this is going to make us a more cohesive staff.


Be on the lookout for your next team assignment and if you have any great ideas for team challenges, send them my way!

TECHNOLOGY STAFF DEVELOPMENT

Lisa McGarrah will be here on Thursday to work with 1st and 2nd grade classes. She sent the link to sign up. Please make sure you are taking advantage of these opportunities as implementation of technology into the classroom is one of our school focuses this year.

PLC TIME

If you haven't completed your goals and/or your SLO, please allow some time this week in PLC to make that happen. We need to be finished inputting goals and SLOs so that we can move forward.


Fourth and Kinder need to make time talk about Data Tracking this week or next. Please let myself and Rachael know which day you will put this on the agenda so that we will be present.

GARDEN WORK DAY

Watch for more details coming soon. Karen Boren is in the process of putting together a garden work day. The more people who come to help, the quicker it will go. We need to get it cleaned up and ready for the fall.

ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE

*All those who came on Thursday morning and manned the front office after school cancellation notification had been sent out.

FOCUS FOR 19-20

ENSURE THAT GOOD QUALITY INSTRUCTION IS TAKING PLACE IN ALL CLASSROOMS BY FOCUSING ON:


*integration of technology

*implementation of guided math 3x a week

*improving Tier 1 best practices

SUGGESTION BOX
