FCI Week At A Glance

March 14-20


As we head into the last few weeks before Spring Break then on to the end of the year, it is imperative that we have a heads up for safety and procedures. In the last two weeks, we have had a very noticeable increase in student behavior incidents in unstructured areas such as the hallway, lunch, recess, as well as small group activities especially those outside of the classroom.

Some items to keep in mind:
  • Recess - Be on time to recess duty. Now more than ever your vigilance is necessary. Walk the perimeter of the recess area to monitor student interaction.
  • FCI procedures - Review the expectations in of hallway movement, at recess, lunch, bus, etc.
  • Communication - Communicate with parents making them aware of issues that have been addressed. Let Kim know if there are particular cases in which you need assistance.
  • Presence - Be visible in the hallways during arrival, balancing the monitoring of students inside the classroom with those coming in from the hallway. Walk students to the outside door at dismissal. Walk so you are viewing front and back of your student line moving in the hallway.
  • Structure - Try to keep the schedule as similar as possible to what has been in place all year. (This is a toughie...)
  • Praise - Catch them being good! :) Praise can go a long way.

Your efforts in being proactive will help make this a safe, successful adventure to the end of the year! Thank you in advance!

FCI Staff 2015-16 survey

April PLC date change - Please note!

The April PLC date has been moved from April 22nd to April 21st. This is to allow us to have PD time throughout the day and after school during PLC time to work with Dr. Tara Kingsley on crafting text dependent questions and higher order thinking combined with utilizing Blackboard to do so. Look for a schedule after Spring Break.
