Sloan Creek Intermediate School

The Leopard- December 1st

Are you ready to TACKLE the CHALLENGE?

3 Focuses for High Reliability

Nuts and Bolts

Welcome Back Staff-

We hope you had a restful and relaxing break. I have asked our parents not to contact you over the break, so I hope they were respectful of your time. We intentionally have not sent the leopard over the break in an effort to try not to send out anything while you were resting and recharging for the end of the semester focus on our kids.

10 quick reminders to finish strong:

  1. Grades- are you on track to have 10 minor and 2 major.
  2. **Progress reports are due on Monday, December 7th at 7:45 a.m.**
  3. Please ensure all tests are on the master calendar, Teri Duncan can help you with this.
  4. Please ensure that you have enough time at the end of December that you can reteach and re-test major grades. I would strongly encourage you not to be giving large format major grades after Wednesday, December 9th to allow you time for mastery learning and retesting.
  5. All grades should be input within 3 days of students completing work
  6. Our goal is to have all parent communication returned within 24 hours
  7. If you need to leave during the school day for any reason, please sign out.
  8. Communication committee meets today after school, if you have any ideas, questions, or concerns, please them know so we can problem solve to come up with what is best for our learners.
  9. All visitors must sign in during the school day, please do not let them in the side doors
  10. Please do not release students for any reason prior to the bell.
