The Weekly Hoot

July 21- July 27, 2014

Greetings All -

Hope all is well in your world!

We are making great progress at school! I have official word that rooms in the new wing can begin being moved into on August 4! The fences have been moved, the grass has been cut, and the moving of the playground playscape will be happening soon. PK and Lifeskills classrooms have had their floors waxed and their things will be moved back in on Monday. The Kindergarten classrooms will then be waxed (hopefully on Monday) so Kindergarten teachers, by Wednesday of this week you should be able to get in your classrooms.

The trustees cleaned the gym this week. It is nice to get all of the cobwebs down! Lee and David also took all of the banners down, and believe it or not, there was paint behind them. It makes the gym look so much bigger with them down. Coach Sexton is getting new banners made, I believe, and these he is going to auction off at an Athletic event later on in the school year.

The resource closet upstairs is coming along nicely. Dana and April have organized and set up a math section with manipulatives that can be checked out, and Amy and Tonya have begun setting up and leveling all of the books in the other section for our guided reading library. If you add anything in there, please put it on the floor because they have a system started and we don't want to get it messed up! :)

All of our science and math adoption materials have been ordered and should be in relatively soon.

The administrative team is meeting on Monday to get inservice together. We have worked on New Teacher Inservice already, and I think it is going to be very informative for all of you newbies.

I have updated the Anderson-Shiro Elementary Activities Calendar, but here are a few dates you might want to put on your calendar now:

August 15 - Back to School Get Together @ Amberly Kolby's family camphouse. It is not the camphouse we were at last year. It is a different one. Details and directions coming soon.

August 21 - Meet the Teacher Night from 5-6:30. I will feed you supper.

September 2 - Parent Academy Night. Time still to be determined. I will feed you supper.

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer! It is flying by. Pretty soon we will all be back together and my world will feel right again!

Remember to text me pool pics, vacation pics, camp pics, workshop pics, etc... for the Hoot so we can keep up with each other this summer.

Everyone have a great week!

Soaring with you this year,


Owl Wings This Week Go To...

Dana, April, Tonya, and Amy for going "above and beyond" their classroom in order to get the resource center/literacy library ready for the year! I totally appreciate it, and I know everyone else will, too, when they see it.
