Health Room News
Letters to remind parents to pick up any medications that were left w/the school nurse need to be retrieved by a parent or guardian by end of day on Thursday, 6/2/16. Any remaining meds will be destroyed. If a teacher is unsure who had meds, contact me. There will be many parents in school for awards, etc & this is a good time to remind them to see me.
*You should have access to Canvas and the Canvas calendar for your PLC. If not, let me know and I will add you.
Teachers, you will be receiving a bag on Monday to hold all of your technology equipment. This will be the same procedure as in the past. Be sure your bag is labeled with your name and room number. As you unhook things, try to label them, so it will be easier to put things back together again in August. Here is the list of things you will be turning in:
Front Row Box
Front Row Power Cables
iPad (Unless you want to keep it for the summer)
Laptop (Unless you want to keep it for the summer)
Promethean Board Power Cable
Be sure that all batteries are removed from remotes.
Teachers, I have discarded several hundred books: easy, fiction and non-fiction. Please plan to stop by starting on Monday to take any that you might want in your classroom.
