Town Hall Video
We pinpointed a few time stamps for you to watch first, the entire video is almost 2 hours! The time stamped video is basically the financial professionals reassuring us that our schools and corporation are fiancially viable and our issues are very fixable. If you do not have a lot of time, watch:
GOOD LUCK TO ALL OF OUR DRAGON OLYMPIANS!
JUMP ROPE FOR HEART 5/26 From Mrs. Preece:
First of all, there are some good lesson plan ideas you may want to use to teach the students about heart healthy habits and heart anatomy if you happen to have some extra time. These can be found on the website www.heart.org/jump in the tab titled, “Resources for Teachers”. You can also search for our school here and track its progress in the fundraiser.
The easiest way for kids to fundraise for this is to go to the website, look up our school and join the team. There are also prompts there for them to create their own secure website if they’d like. This way, they can send an e-mail out to friends and family, and don’t have to handle any cash themselves.
If students fundraise online, I automatically get notified about what they’ve earned and the prizes they should receive. I’ll be checking once a day and passing out the lanyards and pups they’ve earned as soon as I can. I’d like to travel to the classes and pass them out personally to generate more excitement for the fundraiser, but if you’d prefer that I put them in your boxes, I’m happy to do that as well.
We are changing the jumping date to Thursday, May 26 so we aren’t competing with the musical performances. All money will be due that day as well.
All elementary classes who have P.E. that day will do the jumping in their P.E. class. For classes who do not have P.E., I will set up a schedule and you may sign up to bring your class for a 30 minute session. My P.E. students will be setting up different fun stations and your students will rotate through these stations.
*Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have ANY questions regarding administering the tests. *
**Important: please do NOT assign any homework during testing**
**Students are allowed to chew gum during the tests**
***Remember: Students need to be logged OUT of their google accounts in order to access the secure browser (which can be found on the bottom left corner of the home screen under "apps".***
****When in doubt, hit PLUS (+): When selecting the test you want to give, please remember to keep hitting the + sign until you find the SPECIFIC grade level CAT test or performance task that you need.****
Please update the CAASPP Completion Sheet on a daily basis. We have a proctor available to help us with make-up testing. Thank you!
