Hall Elementary Teacher Newsletter

I have moved our Master Calendar to Hall's SharePoint site calendar. Mrs. Gray and Ms. Miller recently attended a training on SharePoint and will work to help us to learn to use the site soon. It will be a great place to share documents and links! For now, you may click on the "School Calendar" tab above and log on using your system username and password.

Floor Cleaning Schedule
The custodians will be cleaning the floors in all rooms before the end of the school year. In an effort to make this process as smooth as possible, please make sure that you prep your room by picking things up from the floors so that the only thing that has to be removed is your furniture. Please remove student materials from desks and table cubbies. I will post the schedule weekly in the newsletter.
As a reminder, you must post attendance daily...Even if you have 100% .
For students in your class when you call roll: mark PRESENT.
For students not in your classroom when you call roll: mark MISSING.
PLEASE POST BY 8:15 DAILY
