General Notes

We had a very successful Reading Motivational Assembly. Please encourage your students to read read read!!!


Field Trips - Make sure you give the cafeteria a 2 week notice for your trips. Also, make sure that your parent chaperones have had volunteer training with Mrs. Vernon. She is scheduling training sessions the morning of your trips as well.


Parent Contacts - Please remember that you should have made contact with all your parents at this point. Please begin setting up your first parent/teacher conference at the end of this month.


Upcoming Workdays - Oct 27 - Required Workday - training will be for certified staff from 8-12 on CGI in the media center. All employees are expected to work on required workdays. Oct 28 is an optional workday. Paperwork for a absence on this day must be submitted by Oct 26. Instructional Assistants please remember this is a no-day for you.

Oct 3-5

As you out Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday this week. My surgery is scheduled for Monday morning. I actually have to be at the surgical center at 6:00am. Please see Mrs. Vernon, Mrs. Templeton or Ms. Clyburn if you should need any assistance on these days. I don't know how much access I will have to my phone or email most of the day Monday but will check in when I can. Tuesday and Wednesday I will be recovering at home and will have access to phone and email. Thank you in advance for making sure our children get what they need each and every day this week.
