Please send me a quick email letting me know if this move has been a positive move and how/if it makes a difference in your day. The primary purpose of attempting to move breakfast back into the cafeteria is so that you don't have to worry with food and be able to begin your instructional day by 8:10-8:15.
Also, we are blessed to have one of the largest Good News Clubs in our area. With the number of students attending Good News and with the Y being at our school, we do not have an area for us to meet on Tuesdays. When we do have teacher's meetings, it causes the Y to have to find another location to meet because Good News takes up both the library and cafeteria. As the weather turns colder, going outside will not be an option for the Y as they have done in the past when we have scheduled meetings. We do not meet much, but I want to resolve this so that it is not stressful when we do need to meet. Please let me know if it would be okay to move our meeting day to Monday or Wednesday afternoon. I know that Wednesday is church day, so I wanted to suggest Mondays as well. Remember that we do not meet that often and we are always out by 4:30 at the latest.
Please let me know about breakfast and our meeting days as soon as you can.

School-Wide Read to Succeed Plan
Goal #1: 75% of teachers will work together in teams to collect and analyze data, establish goals and look-fors for students, and create action plans for students by the end of the 2017-2018 school year.
Goal #2: Teachers will monitor student engagement in reading and writing and use this data to confer with students.
We have already started work with Goal #1 as we looked at SCReady data and F & P data. We will continue to use data to drive our instruction as we move through the year.
We are going to tie these two goals into our SLO's and will discuss this next week at our meeting.
