Staff News Letter
I hope everyone had a wonderful first full week in May. I appreciate all of the hard work that has gone into the testing over the past few weeks. As many of you have found via past experience, the end of school year will be much more enjoyable and productive if we continue with our regular routines and procedures until the end of the year. I quickly found out while teaching that if I didn’t keep my students focused right up to the end of school year, life became a challenge. I would encourage all of us to push through to the end. Those who have field trips scheduled, please be sure to communicate with the kitchen if you need lunches or have a change in lunch schedule.
I am excited to announce that our Theater Arts Grant was approved for funding. The Theater Arts position will be posted next week. Thank you for all of your support in helping to bring this program to our school. I think you will find it a wonderful help to you.
I sent out a Google Doc on Wednesday for your class rankings. If you have not already done so, please have it filled out by *Monday at the latest. I can’t start on classes until I have the rankings completed. If you are still waiting on DIBELS data, go ahead and use what you have to list their level.
Reminder (Teachers/Full Time Employees): Poster pictures Monday afternoon. Be ready to smile and remember to bring your favorite book to display.
By way of information, at this moment, we have 10.27 days, 246.54 hours, 14,732.3000 minutes, and 887,521 seconds left in the school year.
Have a fantastic weekend!
