The Pirate's Log

Week of September 28

Good Morning!

As we discussed yesterday (I think we discussed it yesterday...everything is a bit of a blur), we'll be meeting Monday morning @ 8:10 as a staff in the library.

Paras...I know you're not contracted to do so, but feel free to stop by too if you're able. I'm trying to figure out a way for us all to be together, but with all of the different start times, this is quite a challenge. You know you can find and talk to me whenever you need to...send me an email too if that's easiest.

Some of us...or all of us were to meet with Sherri Parent about our SLOs on Monday morning. I have canceled that so we can be together. If you want me to reschedule that session with her, email me and I'll reach out to her.

Homecoming Week!

Please make sure you put the names of your float riders in the PTO mailbox. They must have a cell phone number on their form in order to ride.

Monday: USA Day

Tuesday: Tourist Tuesday

Wednesday: Welcome Home Wednesday

Thursday: Dress to Impress

Friday: Black Out

If you or your students ordered a Homecoming Shirt, I think I remember reading that those will be delivered on Thursday.

Homecoming parade starts at the fairgrounds at 5:30. It travels south on Columbus Ave. to Marshall Ave. to South Ave. and ends at Briar.

Things that are due by the end of next week:

  • Emergency Sub Plans (for paras and teachers...please be detailed in your responsibilities, especially if you have a duty.)
  • SLOs
  • Professional Growth Plans (I'll email you if I don't have one from you.) I have to touch base with you and have them signed by September 30.
  • Daily Schedules

Pennies for Patients

Diane Smith and her committee will be communicating more about this soon.

Please plan on an assembly on Friday, October 2 @ 2:30-3:10ish. It might be a good idea to pack up your children before the assembly just in case we run over.

Walk Throughs

I need to start doing some walk throughs next week. Just a reminder that walk throughs last about 10 minutes and I'll have my computer with me. After I complete the form, you should receive an email. If you see me in your room and you don't receive an email by the end of the day (at the very latest) please let me know so I can try to figure out where the glitch occurred.

Professional/Personal/Sick Leave Forms

When you're filling out your leave forms to be approved by me, please complete the absentee form at the same time. The leave form can be put in my mailbox and the absentee form should be placed in Terri's mailbox. Terri needs the absentee form so that she can enter the information in to her book and the google doc that Pat Kelley uses to find our subs.

Side Note...we are desperate for subs. D.E.S.P.E.R.A.T.E. If you know anyone wanting to get on our sub list...tell them to do so!

First Friday!

Friday, October 2 is "First Friday"!

Our Kindergarten team is hosting breakfast for us! Let's plan on working hard to get everything done during the week so we can have our CPT to just visit and have breakfast together! We've been working hard on everything...we deserve a break (as long as you're okay with that contractually, of course). :)

Curriculum Materials Google Doc

Per John Gerber's e-mail:

Principals and fellow teachers -
EJ Mahoney has enlisted my help in compiling an updated listing of curriculum materials and supplemental materials PK-12. To help organize this effort, we are asking to you enter the data on all curriculum materials you use in this spreadsheet. Please use the tabs at the bottom to select the appropriate sheet.
Please note - if you already have this information somewhere - as your building may have an existing curriculum/textbook inventory - please forward that info to me and I will get that info added into this inventory.
If you have any questions about what you need to inventory, please contact EJ. If you have technical issues with the spreadsheet, please contact me.
Thanks in advance!

*Feel free to use your CPT to complete this task.
