We're Half-Way There!

I'm very sorry to be sending this out so late this week. At least we're half-way through the week!I have had appointments and meetings scheduled that have taken up quite a bit of time.


Here's a list of news:


I will be unavailable from 9:30 - 10:30 on Wednesday for a pre-assessment call from NAEP.


I will be unavailable from 10:00 - 12:00 on Thursday for the quarterly Terra Nova webinar.


Honor Roll Award Ceremonies will be on January 20th, 22nd, and 23rd.

January 20th at 2:15 for 1st and 2nd Grades

January 22nd at 1:00 for 3rd and 4th Grades

January 23rd at 2:15 for 5th and 6th Grades


Student of the Month - Please get your nomination forms to me no later than Friday, January 16th. I'm in the process of printing out certificates and invitation letters. They need to go home before the Awards Ceremony.


Classroom guidance will be focusing on the upper grades as they prepare for NAEP (4th Grade) and Terra Nova (3rd - 6th Grades). Classroom guidance for the lower grades will resume in March. Julie Costello, our awesome MFLC, will be going into classrooms and working on similar concepts that I had been working on with the lower grade classes. The classroom schedule is coming! Thanks for your patience :)

Assessment Schedule

I'm working on getting a list of assessments at Brittin. I will update the list as soon as I am able to get the calendar from DSO.


Upcoming Assessments:
