Weekly Update

Dec. 3rd-7th

Below is a great article on 8 ways for teachers to talk less and get kids talking more. It's short and won't take much time to read, but had some really good tips and reminders.

Upcoming Dates

  • Parking Lot Duty: Ms. Polhill
  • Mon, Dec. 3: Winter Concert 7:30 pm
  • Wed, Dec. 5th: 11:15 dismissal/SIP Day

SIP Day Agenda

  • 11:15-12:00 pm Lunch on own
  • 12:00-12:30 School report card overview in the high school cafeteria

December 4th and 5th

On Tuesday and Wednesday, December 4th and 5th district architects from FEH Design will be in the Library all day to conduct a Design Workshop from 9am-4pm that is open to the public. Community members still must buzz in and will sign-in as they enter the Library. Students and teachers who are assigned to the Library will be relocated on these days. If you could also minimize students printing to the Library that would be helpful.

Evaluation/SLO Reminders

  • Don't wait till the last minute to start your SLO's! Don't forget everyone must complete 2 SLO's each school year and can run a maximum of 4 per year. If you are being evaluated, they must be completed by February 1st.
  • Artifacts for teachers being evaluated are only needed for domains 1 and 4. These must also be submitted to me by February 1st.
  • The sooner SLO's are completed and artifacts are turned in, the sooner we can complete your Summative Evaluation together. Thanks for your cooperation!
