Weekly Announcments

June 13

This is the last Weekly announcement for the year. I wish everyone a restful and relaxing summer break. I know I plan to come back rejuvenated and ready to make a difference.

End of year Procedures

Look for an email from Julie this week with an updated checklist on how to prepare your classroom for check out.

Denise will send out a check out procedure for technology as well.

Building Schedule

The scheduling committee met last week. We each looked at the comments in the shared folder. Thank you to those who took time to give their thoughts. I will finalize the schedule and email it to you when it is complete.

Tuesday ALL Staff Meeting Social

For our last staff meeting, I will bring light snacks so that we can gather and say farewell to those teachers and classified staff that will not be with us next year. This will be informal, just time for us to get together and appreciate one another.

Moving DAYS

Staff that will be moving have arranged their own schedules that work better for them. There will no scheduled moving on the 13th and 14th as originally planned.


Although there were many KUDOS through email, I just wanted to give another shout out to our Super Awesome PE teachers Holly and Aprill! Well organized, safe, smooth, and FUN! Thank you for a great day!
