Please check newsletter daily for updates

Message from Dr. Mazzoni

Good Afternoon Folsom Team!

As a follow-up to Monday's staff meeting, I am providing a link below to assist you in creating your professional development plan for the 2019-2020 SY. PDP's are to be created in Realtime and finalized for administrative approval by October 11th. Please submit your PDP to the administrator assigned to your summative evaluation (see observations section in this newsletter for the link).

The PDP must specify, at a minimum:

- one area derived from the results of the teacher’s most recent evaluation

- one area aligned to the teacher’s role as a member of a professional learning community

- one area aligned with school or district improvement goals

Professional Development Plan Guidelines

The district goals can be found on the link below:

Fire Prevention Day

Folsom School will recognize Fire Prevention Day on Tuesday, October 1st. The Collings Lakes Volunteer Fire Department will continue providing students with a 20 minute tour of the fire trucks and equipment along with having refreshments and souvenirs. The presentation is for students in grades PK -4 during the following times:

8:30 -> PK

9:00 -> 3rd Grade

9:30 -> 4th Grade

10:00 -> 1st Grade

10:30 -> 2nd Grade

11:00 -> K

I ask that teachers add this event to your weekly updates to Folsom Families. In addition, we want students in grades K-4 to wear RED in celebration of Fire Prevention Day. Lastly, I ask that students create thank you cards to give to the firemen on this day.

All Teachers should schedule a time with Michele to review curriculum for their grade/subject areas. This meeting will include receiving a hard copy of the curriculum that you will be responsible for until June.
