It's that time to again to begin planning at least 1 field trip for this semester! Remember to submit your completed field trip packet at least 2 months in advance for approval. Consider planning a trip during the week prior to Spring Break. The scholars have checked out and will be ready for a break. It is a great time to go on a field trip! Due to the GA Milestone testing, the only week in which a field trip will be approved in April will be the first week. Please take this into consideration when planning your trips.
Room Cleanliness & Readiness for the next day
Starting this week, if you don't do so already, please begin stacking your scholars' chairs every day after school to help the custodial staff clean your rooms nightly. Continue to let me know if your rooms are not clean when you enter in the morning.
Before leaving for home, please leave your room ready for the next day. That means changing the date & connections schedule, posting I can statements and standards, and having the Do Now up and ready on the board. The expectation is that you also have your lesson plans and activities on your desk and ready to go. This preparation makes your morning go smoothly and also ensures everything is ready to go in the event of an unexpected absence.
