Thank you for your hard work each and every week! I hope you enjoyed the extra hour of sleep. I will be presenting a few highlights about Emory this Thursday at 6:00 p.m. at Burress Auditorium and would love to see you there.
TOSA Elma Visits Emory:
We do NOT meet as a staff. This is a PLC week. You may wish to think about stem challenges, review your units of study calendars, re-visit book bags or anything else of benefit to your team.
We are excited to continue to host students from Point Loma Nazarene. As a reminder, these students are enrolled in an art class and this will be their first time teaching students. We are excited to for these students to provide two lessons about a famous artist to our students. Thank you Dene, Sharon, Georgina, Maria, Rebecca, Jeanne, RoseAnn, Leslie, Aranzazu, Monica and Erika!
Teacher Meeting Nov 7 2:30-3:00

Leveled Literacy Intervention:
The LLI program has been stored in the cabinets in room 11 by grade level from Kindergarten to Fifth grade. Jennifer has created a checkout sheet for us to use as a courtesy to others. There are also master copies of the lessons in case these were to get misplaced. Our folders are on back order so as soon as they come in you will be able to find them more easily.
Google Expeditions- now what:
Thanks so much for helping make the Expeditions Augmented Reality happen!!
You may wish to complete the Pioneer Program feedback form
While the Expeditions AR feature hasn’t been generally released, in the meantime, you can still take your students on virtual field trips with Expeditions! Here are some helpful links to get you started.
***I’m not sure how easy or translatable to chromebooks this will be, but wanted to share in the event that it helps you.
- Download the Expeditions in the Google Play Store or the iTunes App Store.
- We recommend a tablet for the guide and smartphones with Cardboard, a virtual reality viewer, for the explorer. You can purchase a kit with the recommended devices. If you want to put together your own kit, you can use the app with tablets and phones. The devices need to meet the following specifications.

Report Cards in Cum Folder:
Reminder– please place a copy of each trimester one report card into your students’ cum folders.
A few words about supervision duty:
There is nothing more important to me than the safety of you, our students and families. Therefore, I’d like to remind us all that it is critical that we are on time to our supervision duties and present- not chatting with colleagues, but scanning and moving through the area we are supervising. Thank you for supporting guest teachers and trading duties as needed.
