JM Staff Bulletin

Week of May 23, 2016

12 Days Left...but who's counting?!

Hi Phenomenal Teachers and Staff,

Please take a moment to read through all of the sections below.



Staff Meeting Topics

We have a staff meeting tomorrow. Please let me know if there are any topics you would like us to cover.

SBAC Final Day of Testing extended until May 31, 2016

Please double check to make sure all of your students are finished with both the ELA and Math portions of the SBAC by May 31, 2016. If you need support with make-ups, let me know.

SRI, SMI, and F&P Assessments

If you haven't already begun doing these assessments, you might want to get started this week! If you need some sub time, check with Katherine to see if she has availability in her schedule.

Report Cards

If you would like me to review your report cards, please get them to me by June 3rd if possible. I will do my best to review any/all report cards even if you are not finished by the 3rd though. Report cards will go home on the 7th for fifth graders and on the 9th for K-4th grades.

DON'T FORGET YOUR YARD DUTY! Set a reminder for yourself if needed!

There were a couple of times this past week when no adult was on the yard for the afternoon recess on the big yard. Please remember to be out at your assigned time to ensure safety of students.

With appreciation,
