Week at a Glance

April 15-18


What a great day! The sun is out, the boys are behaving, and I am able to open some windows to get some fresh air. I'd have to admit I'm a little distracted by having the patio door cracked open while I work at the kitchen table, but I just love to have fresh air coming in throughout the house. The boys love it too since they can hear the birds chirrping better than when the patio door is shut. It's fun to watch them "chase" the birds.

I'm really looking forward to tonight! I am going to cook dinner out on the grill since it is so nice outside today. Yeah! First grilled dinner of the season. Pure bliss. :-)

Please bring some sort of text material that you will be using in the next couple of weeks to the session as there will be time for you to actually write questions to use in your upcoming lessons. At the end of the PD session we will talk about forming classes for next year and the HAGT clusters. I know several of you have questions about that knowing that all the cluster students will be in one class.
  • STAFF MEETING: Our staff meeting this week will be a follow up to the email I sent last week regarding a few items we need to discuss including procedures for dealing with inappropriate materials on student computers and fundraising for the park department. We will also talk about end of the day procedures and some issues that have come up. Please bring your questions and ideas. :-)
  • TINCAPS TICKETS: I am planning on sending home the TinCaps tickets on Tuesday. A note will go home on Monday letting parents know. That way if they want to pick up the tickets themselves, they can do so.
  • MATERNITY LEAVES: I would like to extend a warm welcome to Pam Hoose who will be teaching for Colby while she is gone on maternity leave and to Laura Cripe who will be teaching for Megan while she is gone as well. Colby's last day will be Tuesday and Megan is planning to work this entire week. We'll see what the babies decide for them, however. :-)


Below are links to some items that you will need for Tuesday's professional development session. :-)
