TEAM CSF News - Weekly Update

One Team. One Goal. No Limits.

May 2nd-6th


  • Please make sure that you check this daily....when our agenda changes, I note it on the Weekly Smore.
  • Mark your calendars....Elementary Registration is July 26th! If you are willing to work on this day,
  • Everyone...please plan to stay on Monday, May 9th until 4pm. Dr. Hinton will visit us to discuss our district initiatives and our next steps. All certified staff should have received a survey. Please complete that survey by Monday, May 2nd at 3pm. If you did not receive it, please let me know.
  • Please make sure that you are on time to duty. You should be at your duty location when the bell sounds, not moving to your location.
  • Please make sure that you actively supervise students at all times. You should never leave students unattended. When you leave them unattended, this creates a liability.
  • Please make sure that all doors stay closed and locked at all times.
  • Please remember to carefully supervise all our play areas. Children find creative uses for playground equipment and often their choices are unwise. If you see signs for fire ants or wasps/hornets near any of the equipment, or equipment that is damaged please let us know immediately.
  • Please remember to take a walkie with you before you go outside.

Nurse Information
  • Please make sure that students have had lunch before leaving the cafeteria to see the nurse, unless it is an emergency. (We have had students missing lunch, and they were waiting for a band-aid.)
  • If you need band-aids, please email Nurse Belue and she will place them in your box.
  • Head Lice Reminders - Encourage students to avoid head to head contact. If you have pillows in your room, please make sure that students are not placing their heads on them. Please make sure that students are not laying down on the rugs in your classroom. Please make sure that coats and book bags are at each child's desk and not hung where they are touching each other. If you have questions, please see Nurse Belue.

Things to Complete:

  • ALL Teachers - complete the WIDA PD course on Edivate by May 1st and submit a copy of your certificate to Mrs. Ehlich. I will make a copy and place in your box, once I have received everyone's copy. You will need this when you complete your recertification paperwork in the future.
  • Please make sure that you are submitting your lesson plans on Thursday before leaving.
  • Please make sure that you update your blog by 8am on Monday morning.
  • We have all student's transportation forms! I appreciate your help with this!

A Few Safety Reminders...

1. Conduct a daily “safety scan” of your classroom each morning as you enter the room. Remove or relocate any items that may create a safety hazard.

2. Ensure the door to your room is closed and locked at all times.

3. Be aware of your surroundings as you walk. Watch for potential slip and trip hazards.

4. Ensure you have a class list with you at all times.
