Thursday's Thoughts

April 12, 2018

Please complete the teacher survey on the SCDE website.

The survey can be accessed from the State Department of Education website at http://ed.sc.gov/. Teachers will scroll down to the “Hot Topic” section and select “Teacher Survey.”

BEDS Code: 0401005

Please plan to meet with us next Wednesday in Stacey's room during your related time to review and discuss our schoolwide literacy plan.

Grades 3-5

Remember to include SCReady practice tutorials in your plans for next week.

Looking For Custom Keepers

We are going to include students in our testing video this year. We are super excited about our plan for the video. This is always a highlight in our year.

Teachers in grades 3-5, please show the video that was sent to you to your students tomorrow morning. We are hoping to motivate our students to work hard to be selected to be a part of the video. We need 5 students from each classroom who you feel work hard to be custom keepers. Please send me those names by the end of the day on April 18th. Hold these kids to a high standard. We only want the students who work hard to keep our customs.

Instructional Needs

Do not forget to send me any instructional needs that you have. I need these by the end of the day tomorrow.
