PRINCIPAL'S BLOG TO STAFF - Sun., Nov. 6, 2016

Dear Dedicated and Hardworking Staff,

It's a busy week - parent conferences, the AOE team visits Tues. and Wed., Election day, picture day on Thursday - whew - you earned MORE than a  Friday off!  Sincere thanks for all you do!



KUDOS to STAFF Who "Stepped Up":  
  • Kathi, Pam, and Jenn who put in all the extra efforts to do sub plans for two days of professional development with a smile on their face.
  • Jenn for all her hard work organizing the field trip!
Important Items to Know:

Copier Issues - The copier is working. There is a new copier in the office for limited color copies until the new ones comes in.

Discipline Concerns - For consistency, please put all discipline sheets into Cathy's box, and do not send them home. I am available 24/7 and check in with the office frequently when I am not here. I am working one revising the forms and will provide you the drafts to consider.

Picture Money Envelopes - Please turn in all picture money envelopes to Libbet. Libbet will keep them and give them to the picture company on Thursday.

Parent Conferences - PLEASE provide a Google Doc with your conference schedule and share it with Libbet and I so we know who's coming in when and if they happen.

AGAIN, I am happy to support you in anyway to make sure your days are not too long. Please let me know if you want me to join you in any of them. I am happy to get a sub so you can come in "late" or I will be happy to do a tech lesson with your students so you can meet with parents during the late afternoon.
