Thursday's Thoughts

October 15, 2015

Friday with K & M

I am looking forward to spending time with you all tomorrow. Remember that this is a time for you to discuss anything you would like with us. I want you to always know that if there are issues or concerns, you can always come to us. We will always work to make sure we help in areas where we can. I miss this time together, and can't wait to see you.

We will not be able to cover lunch tomorrow due to meeting with each group in the school. We will pick up duty free lunch next Friday.

Have a great night! Happy Friday!

United Way

Please consider giving to United Way. Reggie placed forms in your boxes this week. If you decide to give, please give your form to Reggie. Thank you!


T-shirt order forms went home this week to everyone except K5. K5 classes received order forms several weeks ago. You may get some questions about this order, so I wanted to make sure you knew about them. We originally thought we could order shirts through Tiger Town graphics for $6.50. That price was not accurate and the shirts were going to cost $19.50 each. Rather than refunding all the money collected from this order, we are trying to fulfill the order with another vendor. The orders are due next Monday and the shirts will arrive within two weeks after that day. If you would like to order a shirt, please complete a form and give it to Reggie before next Monday.


Please make sure you have discussed the ALICE drill procedures with your classes. We will have this drill October 22nd in the afternoon due to 2nd grade testing. We will most likely have it around 1:30. Remember to prepare your students that I will announce there is an intruder in the building and I will tell you of his location. When I announce this, please lock your door, listen to the intruder's location, and exit your classroom if you are not in the intruder's direct path. If you have questions, please let me know.

Fall Festival

We will be selling Chic-Fil-A meals for the festival this year. We do not have enough funding to provide free supper as in the past for our families. Parents will have to pre-order and will be given a ticket to present the night of the festival in order to eat. If you would like to eat as well, please order your food with the form that will be given next week. We will only get what we order, so you must order if you plan to eat.

If you have not talked with Melissa Creamer about your game for the Fall Festival, make sure you do so by tomorrow afternoon. She is in the process of putting together the flyer of games that we will pass out the night of the festival. If you do not know of a game, she will give you one. If you have your game, please let her know so that she can put it on the flyer.

We need candy donations for this festival! We are asking each teacher and staff member to bring a BIG bag of candy and place it in my office. If every staff member brings one bag of candy, we will have plenty of candy to hand out. Please remember to bring your candy by Tuesday, October 27th.


Do not forget to send your quote to Melissa Creamer.


I hope you all have opened and made a copy of the reading SLO I sent this week. Matt sent out a math LO a couple of weeks ago. Please use these to help you write your SLO. Please remember that this is a practice year. We will meet to discuss your strategies and students in the fall, winter, and in the spring as well. If a student is not moving, we can talk about what can be done and adjust growth targets if necessary. I truly want this tool to be something you can use to help your students.

Please complete your SLO and send it to me by October 27th. We will plan to meet on the 27th for the preliminary fall conference. We will meet during planning on this date so there will be no faculty meeting after school on the 27th.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

Faculty Meeting

We will meet next Tuesday after school to work on AdvancEd. Please make plans to attend.
