I would like to remind you to review your TEI rubric. Mrs. Calderon will utilize the rubric to score your evaluations. If you have any questions remember your experts are Tanya Young and Lorie Back. You can always come to me and Mrs. Calderon for assistance also. With continued joint efforts we will achieve great things at Johnston and you will be able to achieve your personal goals. Thank you for your belief in our children and your efforts in ensuring they succeed.

Student Retention

In to retain a student the following must have occurred:

· - Failing 3 or more core subjects for the school year

· -In the system for RTI with documented interventions

· -Met with parents to discuss possible retention and ways to help (please document time and date)

· -Kindergarten student may not be retained without the approval of parent, teacher, and administrator.

Cinco de Mayo committee needed

Since cinco de mayo is right before testing season starts up again, I would like for us to do something different than a program. Perhaps we can get ideas from parents, etc. and do something more interactive. If you would like to be on the committee please email me. If no one signs up I will ask for help. This is for TA's and teachers. Thank you in advance.

Earth Day April 22

Ideas are needed for honoring Earth Day. Please send me your ideas or if you would like to spear head the day let me know.
