THINGS TO KNOW...

* 5 DAYS and counting to a well deserved Thanksgiving break!!! We can do this!

* Scan tags need to be double checked. There are still several students missing them at dismissal. If you got a new tag, make sure and replace it with the one that your team leader has. New students you will need to get a tag from Deanna.

* Faculty Meeting is Monday.

* Attendance - Our attendance is WAY down right now and Kara is working tirelessly on sending letters and potentially filing. Remember you are a KEY part of that. You must be calling when students are absent and recording it into View It. Before we can file, we have to have proof that we are in contact with parents. You are a vital part of this communication.

* Third grade field trip is on Tuesday.

* Foundations committee meets Wednesday after school in the front conference room. Please check with your teams on procedure feedback and/or concerns.

* Thanksgiving Feast is Wednesday during your lunches. Please make sure you clean up after yourself. I'm sure social committee would LOVE help with set up early in the morning and clean up in the afternoon.

* Group pictures/retakes will be on Thursday. A schedule will be sent so you know when your picture will be taken.

* Friday is a FULL day of school. Please plan activities for that day to keep students engaged.

*GT nominations reminder - Chris Reichelt challenged us to nominate 2 students per classroom. If you haven't put some thought into those students, please take time to do that. We need to uncover some of our GT students who are hiding out there! :)

* Monday 3rd and 2nd flip specials for testing.

* Tuesday 4th and 2nd flip specials for testing.
