In lieu of LST this week (as I have another meeting scheduled), please send me your final thoughts on the students you have recommended for retention.

In your summary, please include:

*PALS Spring Scores

*Math Screener scores for Spring

*Overall thoughts on retention for the student

There are a few parents that I still need to call to confirm the retention. I would like the spring scores (if a 4K student) to use as a final determination.

Please see me this week if you have any specific questions!

Mental Health Awareness

Please wear GREEN (staff & students) on Friday to acknowledge Mental Health Awareness.

Please review these possible activities (put together by Mike):

Most students in the district are getting bracelets to wear for this event, however they ran out of small sizes for our students. Please discuss this topic, as appropriate, with your students.
