A Cordelia Hills Staff Update

Let's Toast to 2018-2019

Let's toast to a new year on Monday with our staff meeting. The festivities will start at 8:00 in the library. Breakfast will be provided but it is BYOC! Also, let's keep it low tech. Leave your devices back in the classroom.

Schedules and Calendars

Team Drive for all Schedules and Calendars includes Bell Schedule, District Calendar, Release Schedule, Release Make-Up Schedule, and Duty Schedule. Please refer to this for all the info. If you see a mistake or need assistance, please let me know right away.

PBIS Information

Our Team Drive also includes all the information you need for PBIS. For those that are new or for those that need a little refresher: PBIS is our system of school-wide expectations for students. The information sheet includes information on how we recognize students and hold students accountable for behavior. Good news referrals and Paw Prides can be found in the staff room. Paper copies of the recess academy and Office Discipline Referral (ODR) can be found in the staff work room.

PD/Buy Back Reminders

Thank you to all of those that attended our awesome retreat. The PD materials for our day can be found in the Team Drive. Sorry for any confusion as FSUSD rolls out a new PD platform. If you have attended Buy Back eligible event, please make sure you are signed up on the PD platform.

Once you receive your electronic certificate, you will want to send that certificate along with the PD Dev Timesheet ( Don't worry about old buyback verification forms or agendas. Just send the timesheet and electronic certificate so you can be paid =)

1:1 Chromebooks

We are continuing to work out movement of locker cabinets for devices. The plan:

-Chromebooks to be ready for your class by Day 1 except for first grade.

-5th Graders take Chromebooks home

-Other grades can send home also but can also store in class

-Amy Baker will provide you with appropriate forms/procedures for student devices. She is the point person. You will not need to bring your class up to check them out one by one.

First Day of School

The start of our First Day will include a line-up at the front and back gates of the school to welcome students back. If you would like to participate, show up at 8:00 a.m. at the front gate (Grades 1-3) and Back Gate (Grades 4/5). TK and Kinder should stay at their designated class meeting spots and TAP will of course meet their students at designated meeting spots. Come to cheer and show the students LOVE!

Morning PE for Grades 1-5: 8:20-8:25 on yard.
