Reminders

  • Morning supervision: Teachers are asked to be at their classroom doors to greet students and to control the hallway at 7:50 each morning.

  • Please remember to send change of transportation notes to the office in the am.

    Students are to go home their routine way unless there is a phone call or

    note to change that.If a student is adamant there is change, please contact parent before the end of the day to verify.

  • Please remember to let both Brenda and I know if you are going to be out for a sick or personal day. Please do not just put this in Aesop without letting us both know. An email to both of us is fine.

To Do


  • Check out the following video on transitions (Thanks, Kate!):

  • Continue to check Lexia and Dreambox usage and make adjustments so kiddos can reach their weekly goals. Please make sure you are logging into your account at least once per week to see what your kiddos are learning.

Feb. 15 PD Day

Please read the "The Impacts of Poverty" chapter I gave you from the Gorski book. Also, complete the "poverty quiz" and respond to the 3 guiding questions before we start on Monday.


The plan is to have doughnuts and juice starting at 7:45 in the library. We will start our work with poverty and authentic learning around 8:00. Please see the agenda for the rest of the day.


In the event that we have inclement weather on Monday, the expectation is that teachers report to work at their regularly scheduled times unless the county is on a Level 2 or 3 travel warning. The first level is Yellow and the lowest level of warning. If the travel advisory moves to Orange, the 2nd level, or higher, we would not expect teachers to travel in to work. If the weather and condition of roads prevent safe travel to work, teachers may use personal days for Monday. You can find the travel advisories here:
