Nuts & Bolts

March 11, 2019

Thank You

The History Fair was fantastic this year. The student projects were well done. Thank you again to Adrian, Andrea, Kat, Nicoletta for organizing History Fair and for working with students after school on their projects.


Thank you for your participation in Monday's staff meeting. Your summarized feedback is below for your perusal. Thank you, Lana, for the well researched presentation.


I am so excited for Literacy Week! Thank you to the Literacy Week committee (Ms. Holly, Ms. Karen, Ms. Kari, Ms. Kirsten, and Ms. Krista) for your hard work and planning.


Friday and Monday are professional learning. Stay tuned for those agendas.


Have a wonderful week,


René

G&C Challenge - Interrupting Politely

I frequently hear that there is a lack of grace and courtesy in our building. Most recently, this was discussed at our advisory meeting. If you read this far in N&B, I applaud you and invite you to click here to get a special recognition treat. were several reasons brought up that could be causing this phenomena. I would like us to try to address this by recognizing grace and courtesy when we see it happening.


Thank you for practicing and recognizing G&C when closing lockers quietly.


This week I would like to pose a challenge for you to recognize students, families, and colleagues who interrupt politely.

Montessori Monday

We have a Montessori Monday professional learning opportunity this Monday, the 11th. This will take place in the library 8:45-11:30am and presented again 12:00-2:30pm. The agenda can be accessed: https://drive.google.com/drive/u/0/my-drive.


Bathroom Issues

There were no instances of inappropriate bathroom use this past week! Thank you for continuing to sign students in and out of our classrooms and conducting periodic bathroom checks, as indicated on the spreadsheet sent out last week.

Requesting Admin Assistance

If a child's behavior is so egregious that you click the "alert admin" button as you are entering the incident into Aspire, please send or walk the child to the office to be addressed by an administrator immediately - after the report is in Aspire. If you send the child unaccompanied to the office, please phone the front office to alert us that the child is on their way.


Administrators see a red indicator on the Aspire homepage when you click "alert admin;" however, we are not always on our computers staring at the Aspire homepage. To address behavior infractions expediently, please also send the child to the office. If it is not an emergency and the administrators are tied up at that moment, the child should check in with the front office and then wait their turn.


The "alert admin" button is clicked by default. Thank you and talk to Lana or René if you have questions.

Literacy Night

As stated last week and at the beginning of the school year, all full-time staff are expected to be at and participate in Literacy Night, this Tuesday. Kirsten sent out a link for you to sign up and several people have not signed up yet. Please add your name to the spreadsheet. John, you have signed up in two places.

Copier Reminders

Please do not to shake the toner or the waste toner box. It caused the waste toner to spill toner throughout the machine. I realize that these copiers have been breaking down a lot lately; and, they need you to be gentle.
