The "Futures Way" is to do whatever it takes to build up our students and their families for academic and social success.



Shout Outs!!!

Thank you sunshine committee for organizing Cato's event!




Reflection on what went well last week (school-wide)


Our walkthrough team with Sondra Aguilera observed: schedules and objectives posted and students independently reading.


Challenges

The hallway started to get a little hectic around 1:00. Please see my separate email about bathroom use.

Behavioral Tips

Don't give extra chances. I caught myself saying this at lunch : "Table ___ you know I will have to turn your cone to yellow if you are not at level 2!" Why is that wrong? If the expectation is level 2, I should have just changed their cone right away. Otherwise there will be 10 steps on my hierarchy!



NO Wednesday PD this week. Suggestion: see if you need to test SRI on anyone absent. You could get them from after school program.
