Glows and Grows

Glows: What a week last week! So many students sick. I know it can be hard on teachers to catch students up after they have missed several days. I appreciate you working through it all and appreciate your effort in working with the families of sick students. Again, thank you to the staff members who agreed to help with the ELPAC. The assessment of our English Learners is important and will help us in gauging the growth of our EL students. Lastly, great job in helping to meet our goal of a postcard home or good news referrals for each classroom for each month.


Grows: How do you work with your grade level to meet the needs of your below grade level students? Do you pool resources? Do you have resource students and if so, how is the increased push-in going? I'd love to hear from you.

Attendance, Student and Staff/Reminder!

If you are concerned about a student who is missing school, reach out to the family or to Karen and we will work on making a contact with a family to chat through whatever is going on. Sometimes, a postcard or good news referral for a student missing school goes a long way.


Remember, I track school wide attendance here! One of the best things we can do to find success for our students is to celebrate their presence and to make sure we are the ones leading them each day! Thanks for your commitment.

Donors Choose

Many of you put together some awesome "DonorsChoose.org" requests. As a school, your work to gain donations to use for specific projects, supplies, activities, and furniture from the community is appreciated! A few things:


1. Please let me know if you have submitted a Donors Choose project. Send me the link and I will be sure to include it in my parent newsletter and on our Facebook page.


2. If the project includes furniture, it must be approved by our purchasing department. If you send me the specs ahead of time, I have no issue sending it to the appropriate staff for approval.


3. Send me any photos AFTER the arrival of the project and I will also include that in any parent newsletter/FB/IG post.
