Mrs. Mayer's Monday Morning Memo

February 1, 2016

Happy February

Thank you!!

Thank you for all the birthday wishes, treats and notes, last week! My day here, is what made my birthday so special, last Wednesday.

Staff Development

What an awesome, full day of staff development. Please watch for and complete the survey that will come out. Also, if you have not turned in your notes from your grade level meeting, or your PLC, make sure to get them to your building principal right away.


* During the staff meeting, we talked about needs/wants for next year. Would you please meet with your grade level and talk about what those things are. Also, if there is curricular things you may need/want, please let us know that as well. I will take them until Friday, February 5th. Thank you.


* We also talked about the newsletter vs. staff meeting. Please give us feedback on whether the Monday Memos are helpful, or do you think we need to meet more often for staff meetings? Maybe you want both. I just want to make sure we are communicating effectively. Thank you.

February-

February is "I Love to Read" month, and Kindness month. Please see Mrs. Koch and Mrs. Erickson's email regarding "I Love to Read," month. I am so excited that we are sharing this with "The Cookie Garden." I would also love to come into your room and read a story to your kids. Please let me know what works for you!
