Points to Remember
Classroom Meetings- Please address fighting during your meetings this coming week. There are other ways to solve conflict. Please stress to students that if they get into a fight with another student, they will be suspended.
Killian Family Game Night- Please remember that Thursday, November 12 will be our first Killian Family Game Night. We want to provide an opportunity for our families to come out and enjoy food, fun, and quality time together! A staff sign up has been shared.

Quote of the Week
Techie of the Week
Mrs. Porter’s Techie of the Week goes to Jarette Pendergrass. At our digital playground, Mr. Pendergrass created a google for for his students as a formative assessment to be used the following day. He added flubaroo to it to grade the assessment and set it up to send the grades to his students via email. How’s that for immediate feedback using Google Apps for Education! Mr. Pendergrass collaborated with his team this week creating a blended unit for Social Studies this week as well where he picked a few time saving tech strategies that he was very excited about.
