RES PRINCIPAL'S BLOG TO STAFF - Sun., May 21, 2017

Dear Hardworking Staff,

Wow, only 16 1/2 student days left!  Ambivalence abounds - many of us are exhausted and ready for summer and some downtime, on the other hand  there's so much left to teach, and how we'll miss them!  Enjoy the time you have with them!  Try and get outdoors as much as possible though with your classes!  





KUDOS to STAFF Who "Stepped Up":  
  • Pam and Jen for attending the guidance interview after the EST Meeting Monday!
  • Jen, Libbet, Liza, and Heather for holding down the fort with 5 subs in the building! 
  • Patty for her work organizing the Nature's Classroom field trip!
Important Items to Know:   

GUIDANCE CANDIDATE - We have a guidance candidate that will be coming in to work the students on Wed. where we can observe her interacting with the students.  We have asked her to teach a lesson to every grade level.  I have shared with you a Google Doc with you to have your class meet with her.  Please write in your class name for a time.  Thanks!  

PROFESSIONAL EVALUATIONS - I need to meet with each of you briefly to review your summates and goals for next year.   Please find a time NEXT week that we can meet.  I am creating and sharing a Google Doc with you for that schedule.  

SBAC - So Gr. 3/4 will be starting NECAP this week and Gr. 5/6 will continue with SBAC.     It's important that no one interrupt them when they are testing.  The door will have "testing" signs on it when the testing is active.  Please do not call into her room unless it is an emergency!
