Thank You

Thank you to all of our hosts for the "appy hours". The learning that has taken place has been useful and relevant (the best kind). Thank you, Christi Moran, for getting this going this year!

Thank you to Mrs. Knight for helping with discipline so the AP's could attend data meetings!

Calling All Bingo Callers

One of our community events, Bingo Night, is taking place on Friday, November 2. Teachers are needed to help with calling numbers, the will call table, and for helping give out prizes. If you are interested, please email me. This year the event is taking place at Goodson Middle School and begins at 6:30 pm. Proceeds from this event benefit all of the great programs our PTO provides to our staff and students.

If you help during the event, you will receive free admission. The prizes are amazing, so come on out to play even if you are not volunteering.

Book Character Parade

Please be sure you've read the Rocket Register and are aware of the details for this. The parade is a whole-school event this year. We are looking forward to a fun morning of costumes. Although this is Halloween, students and staff should be dressed in book character costumes. Staff should not wear anything with "Halloween" written on it, nor ghosts or witch-type designs during "Halloween Season".

The A-team is having "trick or treating" for all of you throughout the day on October 31. We'll have snacks in each of our offices. You will start in my office where you'll receive snacks and participate in a fun Halloween game that will give your team the chance to win prizes. Your team may show up at one of the following times:









Please let us know if your team needs to come at a different time. By having these set times, our staff that are not assigned to a grade level are able to choose a time when others are coming, and we'll be able to be available at other times throughout the day.

We are looking forward to a fun-filled day!

GT Hours

If you teach students in the GT program, please be sure that you've completed your initial 30 hours or your 6 hours of required update training. If you have any questions, please see Courtney, Carrie, or me. Thank you!

Veterans Day

On Friday, November 9, we will have our annual Veterans Day program. This is a whole-school event and requires a schedule change. The younger grades will go to the gym so sing to the veterans, and our 4th and 5th grade students will attend the program. K-3 students with guests will also attend the program in the cafeteria. Veterans also have the option of staying after the program to visit their student's classroom, so all teacher should plan on this as a possibility. Our Veterans Day committee has been working since the beginning of the year to make this a special event. We appreciate each of you!

Pineapple Chart

Thank you to everyone who has volunteered to have guests in their classrooms. I know it is a busy month, but keep the invites coming. We will have a drawing at the end of this month among all who volunteered to host and all who took time to observe. Fun shirts for Wednesdays with jeans will be the prize! If you have tickets to put in the drawing, please drop them off in my office (I'll have a jar for them). If you volunteered either way and did not receive tickets for the drawing, please see me to get them. Each host should receive 2 tickets, and each observer should receive 1 ticket.
