Yard Supervisor Memo!

October 17-21

Thank you for bringing your best to work every single day!

I am so very proud to work with each and every one of you! Thank you for your excellent work and your support. You have really made my first 38 days at Altamont absolutely amazing. Have a wonderful week!

This Week: Conference Week 2

Monday: Character Counts Week! Wear blue for trustworthiness

Tuesday: Character Counts Week! Wear yellow for respect; Tech Tuesday 3:30PM

Wednesday: Character Counts Week! Wear green for responsibility; PTA 7PM, Lunchtime Activities, Wellness Workshop: “Achieving a Better Work/Life Balance” at 3:45 p.m. in DO – Conference Room C

Thursday: Character Counts Week! Wear red for caring; Library closed; Great California Shakeout; Writing Commitee Mtg; Tech Lead Mtg.

Friday: Character Counts Week! Wildcat Spirit Apparel


As you may know, we have to reduce our supervision staffing/hours. Amy and I realized that if everyone starts at 11:35 and ends at 1;15PM it resolves our issue. The new hours will begin on Monday 10/17.

Congratulations Cassia!

Tracy Thurman she goes above and beyond as a school psych

Daena Nelson because she is such an awesome teacher and she is great at collaborating and working as a team.
