1st Day of the Year!
Shout Out to Jennifer Rogers for putting together the McCalister's spud lunch. Potatoes, cheese, and bacon...oh my!
Shout Out to Sandy Padgett for organizing the staff luncheon at Olive Garden. The pictures of our staff together was powerful, especially the huge number. I hope that is just the beginning of many opportunities for our staff to continue strengthening our relationships!
Shout Out to Greg Butler for coming in on Sunday to get the trash overflow out in time for the early morning pick up!
Shout Out to everyone that has been working so hard to prepare their rooms as well as help new staff be prepared for welcoming our students tomorrow!

Staff Focus and Action Items
Teacher Contract Time - Adjustments were made to the teacher contract day at the end of last year. The regular teacher day is 8:20 am to 3:50 pm. Extended days for PD are on Wednesdays of full weeks only (see PD calendar below). Teacher contract time on PD Wednesdays is 7:30 am to 4:00 pm.
Professional Development Calendar - The link to the PD Calendar for this year can be found here. The bold sessions are district driven PD, all other sessions are building driven. Session topics/focus are subject to change based on our building needs.
Classroom Furniture FINAL NOTICE- There are tables/chairs in the 4th grade pod and outside the STEM room if you need additional furniture for your class. I will be sending the extra to the warehouse next week.
Safety & Security - Officer Brandon Pounds will be the WPD officer assigned to Sunny Heights Elementary. He will be stationed at Stonybrook Middle School (next door), but will be a presence at Sunny Heights as well.
Building Hours - The building access hours for Sunny Heights are listed below. If you are in the building outside of the set time range, the alarms will go off and our school will be charged a fee for a false run. PLEASE adhere to these times (for many reasons)!
Weekdays: 5:00AM - 11:45PM
Weekends: 9:00AM - 5:30PM
Tier I Classroom PBIS - Continue to review the PBIS Tier I information shared last week (I know it was a lot). Reach out to the committee for questions or clarification. It is very important that we commit to the process and provide consistency for EVERYONE. We will see the results that we are striving for if everyone is committed to being part of the TEAM!
One-on-Ones - I will be sharing a schedule with everyone to sign up for a one-on-one meeting with me to discuss your focus and goals for the year.
