RES PRINCIPAL'S BLOG TO STAFF - Sun., June 4, 2017

Dear Dedicated Staff,

This is the time of year when the clock is ticking as loud as the alligator's on the old cartoon of Peter Pan - you feel like Captain Hook always aware of the clock!    As yucky as the weather has been, it's actually a good thing for keeping the "summer itch" down to a minimum.  This week's weather looks better, so it's a great time to learn outside!  

Also, I recognize this is a very independent staff, but please run plans by the office so we know what's happening.  If I don't know I schedule things guest speakers, coaches, etc., so please keep me in the loop.   Please fill in the Google Docs for times to meet with the literacy coach on Fri. 


KUDOS to STAFF Who "Stepped Up":  
  • SeƱora Elaine for helping out with lunch Fri. when both Sherry & Liza were on the field trip!  
  • Sherry and Pam for volunteering to drive a staff member home when we needed it!  
Important Items to Know:    

END OF YEAR EVENTS - If you're planning anything special with your class as the year comes to a close, please keep the lines of communication open and let the office know before things occur.  

GUIDANCE CANDIDATE - The guidance candidate will be coming back on Monday to observe excellent teaching strategies in your classroom.  Please share any helpful hints you have.     

PBIS CELEBRATIONS - School-wide celebrations  are planned to celebration reaching our "respect" goals. The student council will be coming around to announce the pending events in your rooms - please let them announce them!   Please encourage your classes as they celebrate each letter AND continue to give out "respect tiles."     Here is the schedule of events:

STAFF END-OF-YEAR PREP - At the staff meeting Monday, we will discuss: end-of year expectations/procedures  goals for next year, the action plan for 2017-18, and some items to review and prepare for our staff retreat.  Let's start promptly at 2:55 so we can start our interviews on time.  Thanks!
