ECPS Weekly News

May 2014 be a year of creating strong TIES (Teach, Inspire, Encourage, Support) at ECPS

I don't know about you, but I was more than ready to come back to school this week. The time off was wonderful, of course, but I needed to get my head back in the game. So many of us were sick before or during the break, hopefully, we got that out of our system!

Teaching Strategies Gold alert. As far as I've seen, to date, all students have been entered into the TSG system. We need to have the baseline data for all students entered this month in order to have the time necessary for comparison to our Spring data. Remember that you are not alone in entering data - I can add your para-educator and ancillary staff to help capture information. Please email me with the names of staff you would like added to input information to your classroom list. I will start reviewing classroom profiles after next week.

The reimbursement amount for mileage has changed to .56 as of January 1. Please visit the P drive for the new form.

Next week you will hear details about Yoga classes starting at SESC-South later this month for several weeks - get those mats ready.

What's the big deal about soap?

Marcia McGee is collecting soap and other personal items (toothpaste, shampoo, razors, etc.) for the Catholic Charities of Genesee County. She is asking for our help and there will be a donation basket in the staff workroom starting Monday, January 13th for the entire week. All donations will be very much appreciated!
