Monday's Staff Development and Collaborative Planning

K-4 teachers will meet in the downstairs computer lab at 8:30 am. Lunch is from 11:30-12:45 and all professional staff who serves students will meet back in the downstairs computer lab. Please plan to eat somewhere that is quick enough to get back on time. At 12:45 we will be working with a representative from Amplify to take a personal survey regarding use of technology in the classroom. You will receive results of the survey.

Info from Chelsea

Tutoring:

As tutoring groups change, please make sure that Rhonda has the most current tutoring list. When parents call with questions regarding tutoring, it is helpful for Rhonda to have this information so that she doesn’t have to interrupt your class. Also, please make sure that the office is aware if a tutoring session has to be cancelled due to an emergency. Please do not cancel tutoring unless it is absolutely necessary because no matter how much communication is provided, parents still get confused about where their children are.

MOY Textbook Count—I will be sending the MOY Textbook count on Monday, 1/11. It will be shared as a Google Doc again. Please physically count your books and type the number on the form. At the bottom of your column type your initials and the date. Thank you for your help with this! I will close the form on 1/22.

As our enrollment continues to grow, if you are in need of textbooks, please let me know!
