Things to Decide

After School Tutoring: Make a plan together of how we want to split students so they are getting the most from tutoring. Look over ERI data for students and form groups according to skills needed.


Oct Block out dates: 2 teachers need to go on Oct 21st and 2 teachers need to go on Oct 24th


Character Dress up day for October 31st: Team theme for this year???


Conference Day - I will let you know when I have been told which conference form to use with parents and any other things we might need to hand out. Let me know if you need help with anything else for your conferences.


Report Cards: Let me know if you need any support doing your report cards for this six weeks.


Field Trip has been approved for Friday, March 10th at the UTA Planetarium in Arlington. The buses are supposed to be at school at 9:00am and the show starts at 10:00am. We will eat lunch at the J.W Dunlap Park in Arlington. (Friday before Spring Break!!)
