Campus News

Week of November 16th-20th

Happy Friday Everyone! PSSST~5 work days till Thanksgiving break!

CONGRATS to Dennise Schuler, Megan Fogarty, Heather Schmitt, Sydney Gantzer, and Coleen Referente on your grant awards! Beaty was awarded 100% of grants submitted! We were the only ECS to be awarded grants. The Foundation received 272 grant applications this year and only 97 were granted! Way to represent ladies!

MANY of you are still not members of the PTA. It is very inexpensive to show your support for the few folks that do so much for our campus. We should have 100% participation. PLEASE, PLEASE sign up, it shows our appreciation for all they do for us!

Sunshine has 94% of dues paid!! Thanks everyone! Flutter on butterflies! You 6%ers, get on it!

Remember that Elena will be coming through classrooms collecting non-evaluative data. Please don't worry, it's really not about you!

Please analyze your CPAA and do intentional grouping to close those achievement gaps. We will discuss further this week at our DSM.

Don't forget to order your Spirit Wear! Contact Alesia and Debbie R. for more information.
