Sunday Night Memo, 4/15/18

April 15, 2018

SLT Meeting
Our last SLT meeting will be tomorrow at 3:30pm in the library. We will discuss and settle on a date for our summer retreat, break off into different teams to lead building work and talk about the end of the year.  Unfortunately, I have not heard back from district technology so will not have sample laptops for viewing like I wanted. 

Chromebook Collection
Tomorrow, students will turn in their Chromebooks and chargers to their 4th hour classes.  Once they are in your rooms, please follow the instructions shared by Jason.  I know it will be a bit messy and confusing as times as we shift the Chromebooks back to the classrooms.  Thank you for you patience through this process.  A special thank you to Bettye, Lana and Jason for all of their hard work and planning to create the process for collection so that we can make sure that every student has a working Chromebook for our MAP tests.

Mike Visits
From now until the end of the year, Mike Hazelton will be visiting our building once a week.  He will start his days at Steger, getting to know his new class of students and building relationships.  He will then spend some time with us, getting to know our building. 

Outs This Week
Sarah Bodi and I will be out on Tuesday for LACE.  Sarah and I will also be out on Wednesday morning to meet with the Steger team and have a transition meeting about our next class of students with teachers and admin. 

Aimee and I will be out on Thursday for DLT.

Have a great week!

With gratitude,

SLT Meeting
The last SLT meeting of the year will be held on Monday, April 16th.  We will be talking about end of the year activities as well as planning a date and solidifying our SLT summer retreat.

SLT is open to everyone.  Please join other Hixson building leaders as we work to grow our school.

Character Committee
The next Character Committee meeting is April 30th in the Library at 3:30pm.  Please feel free to join the committee to examine how we can continue to build on our character culture at Hixson.

Our Nurse
Our nurse, Shannon Conrad, gave me permission to share why she has not been at school.  Last week, Shannon hit her head in her office and sustained a concussion.  She is being treated and will return to school when she is able.  Shannon will be out tomorrow.  We wish Shannon all the best as she recovers.

Have a great week!

With gratitude,
