Are you using Charger Cash to reinforce PBS expectations and Second Step skills?

- We want to use positive reinforcement to draw attention to what we want to see more of from our students.

- How do you make sure you are putting the focus where you want it?

- Are you remembering to use all your tools? Specific feedback? Charger Cash?

"You are a giant, yellow highlighter. Highlight behavior you want more of, and help children become aware of the many kind and helpful things they do each day."

End of Year

1. Please be sure that when you have any special events going on in your grade level, information about times and such are shared with our secretaries. They take many calls with questions that can be answered easily if we have the information.

2. I will share a google form with you to check out purposes. I hope to get this to you by early next week. All things on the list will need to be completed before you are "checked out" and before summer school.

3. The 2018 summer professional development activities have been added to the district catalog in MyLearningPlan. Staff can sign up for activities listed in the district catalog by clicking on the activity title, then clicking on Sign Up Now.

4. Our assemblies for grades k-4 are Friday, May 11. Teacher teams need to decide on special awards to give to students. Teachers will announce and distribute these at the assembly. These will not have to be turned in to the office.
