A big thank you to Joyce Wilkerson for presenting the Color Code information! Learning about your own and your co-workers colors can help us understand each other better.

Items to Order

If there are items that you have put off requesting that you need or would help make your instruction better or more organized, now is the time to put in the request. All might not be granted. This excludes furniture and tech request. Heather has a catalog if you need to look through it.


Mrs. Harter and I will be getting into rooms to get observations done. We enjoy getting to see great teaching in action. We are here to support you and make the staff even better for our students. This staff has always been very respectful of the leadership and open to finding ways to grow. Teacher Growth= Student Growth

Grade Level Science Material List

Mrs. Frazier has asked grade level chairs to create a list of supplies each grade level would like to have to teach the content they are assigned. Please send these to me when you get the list from your Grade Level Chair.

School Board Recognition

If your class is interested in writing a thank you to our board members, please get them to the office by Jan. 24th. Our building board reps are President Michael Goolsby and Vice President Justin Baucom.


Both ACCESS and DORA testing will be going on the next few weeks. Thank you for being flexible with the lab and sharing technology to help us get these done as efficiently as possible. Remember to keep the noise level down in the area that testing is taking place.

Step Up to Writing at Powerful PD

We are looking for some teachers that are willing to share how they are using SUTW in their classroom. We are going to combine a teacher from FV with a teacher from CO. We need one from K-1 and one from 2-4. Email me any teachers that you know do a good job.
