10-minute Evaluations

We are hoping to finish all 10-minute evaluations by next Friday, 12/19. Unfortunately, that means that we will be out of our offices. Should you need one of us for urgent issues, please contact the office as they can help locate us. Otherwise, email us so that we can touch base on your needs/concerns.

Man-Made Drill

Be sure you have reviewed the ALICE procedures with students. We will have a drill this week. For more information review p. 21 in your HSE Emergency Reference Guide.

Outdoor Recess

Although we know you tirelessly remind your students to bring ALL of the items necessary for recess, please give another shout out! There have been a number of students who do not bring their coats (yes...their coats!) to lunch with them and ask to go back to their lockers.


Email Randy and Kim letting them know when your team intends to take NWEA per our team meeting discussion. NWEA should be completed 1/16/15.

CLASSROOM Winter Party

Reminder that classroom parties are Friday, 12/19 @ 2:00 pm. (Team 5-2 - 1:00 pm) PTO will deliver treats at some point during your party time. If you would like to contact a parent to assist, you may do so on your own.

Spread Some Cheer

At our last staff meeting the Diversity Team talked about a way for staff members to get involved and help a family at FCI who is in need of a holiday meal. There is a list of remaining items in the teacher’s lounge that you may choose from. If you would prefer to give a monetary donation, put that in Jen Shults' mailbox or drop by her room. She will pick up items that still need to be purchased and put the remaining amount on a gift card for the family. All items must be brought in by FRIDAY, DECEMBER 12th. A box will be given to the family on the Monday, 12/15. Thank you for your generosity! We have such a great staff!

Speak Up!! (due by all students and staff by 12/19)

The basics:

Who- students and all teachers

What- Speak Up survey

Where- at school

When- any time before Dec. 19th (required)

Why- as a condition of our HSE21 Digital Learning Grant

  5. Complete and submit survey- plan for 15-30 minutes

Classroom teachers decide with your team when you’ll be administering the survey and if you’ll give it in homerooms, by rotation, or by subject area. All other teachers you may take the survey whenever you like before December 19th.
