Mrs. Mayer's Monday Morning Memo

December 7, 2015

Today is the day, our little musicians have worked so hard for!

Music Program

Thank you for helping out so graciously with the program. Mr. Hendrickson and all 497 kids that will be performing, have worked so hard and I know they are so excited to perform.

Mandated Reporting

As a reminder, the Mandated Reporting law states Oral reports must be made within 24 hours of receiving information from a student; written reports must be made within 72 hours. Please see the attached document with the statute. Thank you.


Please remind students to dress appropriately for the weather. This is also a good time to check your Skyward information to make sure that phone numbers are updated in case an instant alert needs to go out regarding school late starts or closings.

Please be cautious in the parking lot as well, as it may be icy.

We made it through Trimester 1!

Report cards go home on Friday. Please let myself or your team know if you have questions.

Mayer's Out and About Days, this week

I plan on being out and about Monday and Wednesday this week. I will be out of the office on Friday this week. If you need anything on Friday, please let Ann or Mark know.

ASCD Magazines

I get the ASCD magazine every month. Each month, all the articles are focused on one topic. This month's edition is about co-teaching. If you are interested, please let me know.

I do have all my past issues as well and some of the topics are:

Reaching the Reluctant Learner

Reading Comprehension

Using Assessments Thoughtfully

Instruction that Sticks

Teaching with Mobile Tech

Talking and Listening

Emotionally Healthy Kids

Writing: A Core Shift

Tackling Informational Text


If you have anything you think I should add to the Monday Memo, please let me know by Friday of the week before.
