Principal's Corner #35

May 3. 3019

Given some recent information, I am going to ask all of us to attend a brief stand-up meeting starting promptly at 7:35 am. Please plan to arrive at school a little earlier than normal and you may adjust your schedule accordingly the remainder of the week. The purpose of this meeting is to share a literacy update and review our district values.

Please help make sure your teammates have received this information.

Thank you and enjoy your weekend.

Printing Inventory

On Monday, May 13th, the district will be at COT to conduct a detailed inventory of all printing devices, including Xerox devices, desktop printers, fax machines and any other miscellaneous printers (wide format, 3D, etc.). This process will require a walk-through of every room. They are doing this at every school. The walk-through will be conducted by a small team from Lewan and a representative from Fiscal Services.
