Week at a Glance

May 4-8


Wow! What a beautiful weekend it has been! The flowering trees are in full bloom, the spring bulbs are showing their colors, and things are starting to look pretty green outside. I love this time of the year when the air smells so sweet, and we have warm days and cool nights. Guess I can take my ice scraper out of my car now. Spring is finally here! :-)

  • ISTEP TESTING: ISTEP testing is almost done! Grades 3-7 will all test on Monday and then we will finish up with grades 4 and 6 testing on Tuesday. Make-up tests will be given until all students have completed tests. That will likely be on Wednesday. As far as specials go, we will only need to delay specials on Monday. We can resume the normal schedule on Tuesday, but just be aware that grades 4 and 6 will be testing throughout the building. Please make sure your students are extra quiet in the halls as they travel to their special class. ISTEP testing has gone well this round. Thanks for all your efforts to make that happen!
  • PRE-SUMMATIVE CONFERENCES/DATA MEETINGS: This round of data meetings will take the form of our pre-summative conferences. I was able to schedule most of the conferences for Thursday and Friday of this week and will schedule the remaining ones for next Monday. Just a reminder that all evidence needs to be uploaded to SFS by Wednesday. If an item is too large to upload, you can email me that info. Keep in mind some things such as student data notebooks which are too large to scan and send can be brought to our pre-summative conference.
  • PAC: PAC is planning to provide a continental breakfast on Monday and then lunch on Thursday. They still plan to do their monthly luncheon on the 18th! Wow! What a treat for us!
  • STAFF DRESS UP DAY: Don't forget! Wednesday is the day to dress up like it is the 1980s! The clothing styles in the 1980s were so vastly different in my opinion. There was the punk rock look, flashdance style, hammer time parachute pants, preppy, big hair/big shoulder pads, scrunchies/clips to hold your t-shirts in place, rolled up jeans that sometimes were so tight it made your feet turn blue, boat shoes with no socks (Yeah, Rhonda!), Miami Vice style with pastel colored t-shirts and blazers, bow ties (even for girls!), and so on and so on. Hope you are able to join in the fun of heading back to the 80s! Prizes will be awarded to the top three best-dressed staff members!! :-)
