August 19, 2013

As I said on Friday, thank you for many, many jobs well done this week.  One can never underestimate the value of a good rest after a strong first week of school.

I will do a mid-week update regarding our first fourth-Monday faculty meeting so you know what choices there are and how to indicate your choice.  I'll also include some information on Open House, which will be on Wednesday, 8/28, and will begin at 6:30pm.

Other Notes

  • The counselors worked hard to bring Rachel's Challenge to our school.  This effort toward a culture of caring in our school community will benefit all of us and our relationships.  I hope you are able to attend the community event on 8/22 at 7pm.
  • Growth Plans are still coming in and looking very good.  Thank you. I have been making comments that you might not be able to see if you do not expect the "Element Questions" section on the Growth Plan.
  • Jason is still waiting for TLC to install the necessary software on our printers.  If the software isn't installed by Monday morning, he will do his best to get them connected and working in your classrooms.
  • Although it's not due until 10/4/13, I wanted to remind all of us about our required staff training.  Click here for the tracker and PowerPoints.

Teacher-to-Teacher Resources
Teacher sharing and collaboration affects student achievement, so thank you to those of you who shared so many resources via Outlook this week.  I have compiled them all in a Teacher Resources folder in our Faculty Handbook.

Out this Week
I have jury duty on Monday, so I will be out of the building on 8/19 (maybe longer).

I have great expectations for all that is possible during week two!
