Monday's Faculty Meeting
JoAnn Kite from the district business office will be presenting information on district insurance updates. This is an important meeting, so we will postpone our fourth Monday technology PD meeting until May 12th.

Hixson High Five Awards
This is a busy and fast-paced time of year. Still I ask that you take 15 minutes to recognize students, who may not otherwise be recognized, for their readiness, respect, and responsibility.  Students really do value and benefit from this personal feedback.  Click here to read more information about the High Five Award.  Click here to e-mail Mrs. Davis your nominee. She will need to receive this on or before 5/9/14.

8th Grade Recognition PowerPoint
Last year, as a school, we contributed to a PowerPoint slideshow that ran a few times before 8th Grade Recognition began. This year, I would like to do the same thing. Essentially, each student's picture is on a slide and next to the picture is a list of accomplishments or qualities we would like to recognize. Click here to see last year's.

The time we spend on this is valuable to our students, their parents, and our program. All of us have editing access, so please Click here to contribute. Thanks to Jason Heisel and Kyle Anderson for pulling this together for us. If you have any questions, please let me know.

Track Day
  • Thanks to Coach G for last week's e-mail regarding Track Day. 
  • We will gather for lunch after dismissal for our annual Qdoba buffet. (This is our Cinco-de-Mayo-Teacher-Appreciation-Lunch-Even-Though-It's-Neither-Cinco-de-Mayo-nor-Teacher-Appreciation-Week lunch. It really only worked out that way my first year, but since a burrito sounds good after a morning at Track Day it's a tradition I've kept nonetheless.)
  • After our lunch, we'll have at least two hours of work time, and I suggest that departments determine how they will organize that time. If you have any questions or if I can be helpful, please let me know.

This week I will be out of the building on Tuesday at Crossroads. Barring any unforeseen circumstances, this will be my last full day away. I will begin Wednesday off campus at a curriculum meeting.
