Cyber Cafe- From Emily Burleson
On Tuesday, January 19th I will be providing a Cyber Café training for your teachers. I would like for this to be individualized for your teachers that afternoon. Please let me know if there is anything you want me to go over and address. This is a great time to invite teachers who need additional training. Thanks so much for your time. Have a great weekend!
If there is anything you'd like to be cover specifically, please let your grade chair know.

From Ms. Mia
Please make sure your reading mastery notebook is complete and up-to date. Please pay close attention to the Lesson Gain chart to make sure the dates are correct and that you fill out every section including the section that has lessons taught out of how many days. Make sure attendance is kept daily. Also, make sure that you are highlighting students who do not pass assessments and retesting them.
Remember your secret pal
Parent/ Teacher Conferences
Although some of the content presented may have seemed a little advanced for our students, in our effort to push rigor, independence, and developing the quality of our lesson delivery, the presentation was nothing short of meaningful and right in line with the direction I want this school to be headed in. If anything, those of you that struggle with the direct portion of your instruction could've really benefited.
Faculty meetings are a must and are required. I was once at a school where the principal told us to leave our Tuesday afternoons free because we were required to stay after school for meetings. I'll never get that harsh but from the response you all gave yesterday, it made me reevaluate the leniency I've had with you. Please do not make me a person I don't want to be. I don't ask much of you, except what is required. If you think that you've got it bad here, please try another school. I promise there's a difference. Some of you do not realize just how blessed and fortunate you are to be here at Stigall. Do not take it for granted.
I try not to meet too much because what can be covered in a faculty meeting can also be covered in a grade level meeting or a PLC. We will have our next meeting in March and it will be in the morning due to the number of people with activities going on in the afternoon.
