Student Holiday/Staff Development


8:30 Teachers (TELPAS Raters) Meet in computer lab and bring you previous years Calibration certificate. (Everyone printed this out in the fall) If you are new to TELPAS and did the Online Basic Training, just come with the course completed. I will get your certificate for you. I will have scratch paper and your PLD's for you to use.


Don't forget your own headphones :)


When you are done with calibration you may leave the computer lab after printing your successful calibration certificate and signing a sheet stating completion.


Lunch - on your own


1:00 CPR training - 40 people have signed up. So proud of Carson Elementary stepping up and volunteering for this life saving training. We will meet in the cafeteria due to the size of the group.


***Paraprofessionals check in with Candace, we have a small project to work on.


***If you are you are not in TELPAS training, we could use your help getting ready for open house. Check in with Candace for ways you can contribute.

Random Acts of Kindness by Classrooms

February's Character Builder is Kindness and Carson's kickoff to Random Acts of Kindness. Your students have been introduced to RAK, during Fly Friday, so they may come with ideas for the class project. There are also ideas on https://www.randomactsofkindness.org/ for you to think about.



As your class is doing their RAK for others, please take pictures and/or keep a sample.


We will do a display of Classroom Random Acts of Kindness and have it up for Open House Week outside the library.
