Weekly Update: 11/10/2014

Good morning! Here are the updates for this 4-day week:

Spirit Day:

On behalf of our Student Council, today is red, white, and blue Spirit Day – please recognize those students who are in attendance today as we anticipate some will be absent and give a shout out to those who are wearing red, white, and blue in honor of Veteran’s Day.

PBS:

Our PBS lesson today will be around Cafeteria Expectations.  Please see the email that Chris sent on Sunday with the powerpoint.

PLCs:

Our PLCs will continue to focus around unpacking standards and scoring PTAs if you haven’t finished.  If you read Chris’ email last week, you know that there is an extension for inputting scores into Illuminate until this Friday, Nov. 14th.

We have a couple of changes to PLCs schedules this week:  3rd and 6th grade will have PLC on Friday.  2nd and 4th grade will have PLC on Thursday.  (Thank you 4th grade for be willing to switch with 6th grade who will be on a field trip on Thursday.)

Staff Meeting/PD:

We will have PD this Wednesday around Report Cards in Illuminate.  Our Illuminate leads will facilitate this once again.  We will meet in Rm. 21 at 1:40p.m.   Please bring your laptops and compostion book/journal for note taking.

ELA PTAs:

If you haven’t done so already, please remember to give me just one copy of a 1, 2, 3, and 4 from your ELA PTA.  Please make sure to paperclip and put the grade level and place in labeled folder next to my office door.

Assembly:

We will have an assembly for 5th and 6th grades on Friday at 1:10p.m.  Please email Angelica, if you haven’t already, with the topics you’d most like them to focus on during the assembly.  (Bullying, rumors, anti-drugs, etc.)

Question of the Week:

What do you plan to do on your day off tomorrow?  If you have anyone who has served in the military, here’s a chance to give a “shout out” to them and their service for our country.

Quote of the Week:
