Dr. Stevenson's Weekly News- Week 16

What's happening?

Dear staff,

Here are some updates for this next short week:

  • No staff meeting on Monday. We will use that time to have 4th grade collaborative meeting in the conference room and 5th grade collaborative meeting in the library.
  • Our annual Title I Family Literacy Night with Rock-It Academy was a success! Kudos to Jenni, Becca, Holly, Lauren, and Trisha for all of their help coordinating the kids' activities, the book give-away, the pizza dinner, etc.
  • Tomorrow (Saturday) is the annual NA PTA Holiday Shop. Please consider volunteering an hour of your time to set up on Friday after school and/or work on Saturday morning or during clean up. It is fun to see the families, the crafts, and Santa!
  • The African dance troupe will be here on December 10th from 12:10-1:10. I know this isn't the perfect time, but they needed an hour so as soon as 2nd, 3rd, and 4th eat, we will take them to the gym for the performance. Please send them to lunch with their things to go home if they are in the 2nd lunch. PK, 1, and 5, please bring your things to go home with you at 12:10, too.
  • Our staff Holiday party which will be at the Alcoa Union Hall down the street on Friday December 12th at 6:00 p.m. Get your crazy white elephant picked out and sign up for a potluck food to bring! Be sure to pay your $2.50 or $5.00 to Colleen.
  • Please make sure to thank Mrs. Bert for her hard work in taking over the Scholastic Book Fair. It is not the easiest of tasks and she did a great job!
