Syring Staff Week Ahead

Monday, June 11, 2018

Dear Syring Staff:

We are at the end of our school year this week! THANK YOU SO MUCH for your service to students this year. We couldn't do what we do for kids without each one of you.

Teachers, make sure that you complete the check out list and turn it in to the office no later than 3 pm on Friday, June 15. Classrooms need to be packed up as much as possible to aid our custodians in summer cleaning. Those of you moving rooms also need to make sure that you pack up and move things around before your last day in the building (by Friday at the latest).

Monday and Tuesday mornings are Donuts with Dads in the cafeteria from 7:30-8:00 am. PTO would love the assistance of any staff that can help come, plus families love to see teacher's smiling faces.

Wednesday we will do a "clap out" for our fifth graders at the end of our 1/2 day at 11:30. Please have your students ready K-4 in the halls like we did for seniors by 11:30 am. Also Wednesday afternoon is the all important STAFF END OF YEAR PARTY at Tara Kimbrue's house. Everyone is asked to bring a dish to pass and it is BYOB. PTO is taking the snowcone machine there as well. :)

Thursday, teachers are invited to attend the math PD at SCMS media center. You will get coupons from me if you attend as a thank you and to honor your time. K-2 attends 8-11 am and 3-5 attends 12-3 pm. There is lunch for K-5 between 11 and noon.

Also, teachers, remember that we like to be able to send report cards home with students on the last day of school, which is Wednesday, June 13. In order to do that, we will need your scores entered in PowerSchool by end of the day Monday, June 11. If there is any reason a teacher cannot have them done, please let me know.

Stacey Springer's last day in the office is Wednesday, June 20. I work through the end of June, but I have various meetings to attend so I may not be in the building every day. You may reach me through school email or my cell phone, I continue to monitor both all summer long. Other than a week or two in the UP, I should not be out of touch.

Please monitor your school email occasionally through the summer, and more frequently in August, as we will be announcing some training opportunities and changes may happen over the summer that you will want to be aware of.

Have a blessed week and a FABULOUS summer vacation!

Thank you to Stacey Springer for preparing all the awards for the fifth grade celebration, Karri Hoover for setting up chairs, Chelsea Thomas for putting together the fifth grade slideshow, Linda Burnett and Buffy Kish who watched the office so that Stacey and Jeanne could attend the event with their children.

Thank you to Mary Rock for all her work at our Syring field day! You ROCK! Thanks to Miss Cindy and Miss Amanda in the kitchen for our fabulous food for our picnic. Thanks also to all staff for working hard to make a successful picnic and field day.

Thank you to Chelsea Thomas for organizing the bridal shower for Deena Latva. Since Deena normally is our party planner for everyone else in the building, we appreciate Chelsea stepping up to take care of the party for Deena.
