News At The Creek
GTES and GEES
The second round of brief observations has begun. Our goal is to have these completed by September 30.
Early Release Days
We will provide lunch for the staff on Early Release Days (Subway and Zaxby's). We will also provide pizza for dinner on the late day (Wednesday). Please plan to come in “late” (8:00 am) if you don’t have meetings scheduled September 29th through October 3rd. The first ten people who email Carrie their favorite tailgating food will get a treat in their mailbox.
2014 Broad Prize
The winner of the 2014 Broad Prize for Urban Education will be announced on Monday, September 22. The announcement of the winner will take place around noon. Whatever the outcome, we already are winners. We have such great people who work in our schools and who support our schools! Think positively on Monday!
We are in need of substitutes for our cafeteria monitors when they are absent. If you know someone who may be interested, please have him/her contact Pegge Savage.
Before or After School Duty Reminder
Please make sure that if you are unable to fulfill your morning or afternoon duty, you are responsible for securing someone to sub for you. This may involve having to trade a morning duty for an afternoon duty.
Great job to everyone during CogAT Testing! Thank you to everyone for your flexibility and support to each other.
DDA Interims (1-5 grade) begin on September 30 (see the testing calendar I sent for specific dates)
ITBS (2,3 and 5) is the week of October 20.
Thank you special education teachers for completing the classroom testing accommodations spreadsheets for me. DDA Interims will be administered just as you would administer a regular classroom assessment and students will receive accommodations that are appropriate for that setting.
