Important Reminders and Updates

Assessment Planning and STEM Days
Brett and I will be meeting with you during these days in order to get you started each day.  We will have an agenda for you on what we will try to cover during these times.  

Please make sure that your sub knows that you are not to be disturbed during these planning days.  If they need something, they need to contact the office.  They should not be calling, texting or trying to locate you to ask questions during the day.  

Also, please make sure your sub folder is up to date with any info needed for learners as well as safety/emergency info and procedures for the day.  There are times when we have a sub who has never been in our building before, so you cannot count on someone knowing the everyday routine.  Everything needs to be spelled out clearly for them. 
Faculty, Vertical and TLC Meetings
Just a reminder to please not schedule any doctor or other appointments on Wednesdays during the school year.  These will be our afternoon meeting days and we need to do our best to be in attendance at all times for professional learning and information being covered.

Copiers and Office Needs
Please make sure that everyone is taking care of our copier machines by not slamming doors and using them appropriately when installing paper.  Remember if there is an issue, please check with Laura or Sherri to help resolve.  This also includes the laminator.  I am fine with you laminating your own materials at this time, but if we have issues we will need to go back to having one person use the machine.

We will be placing an order to Office Depot this week, so if you have needs, please make sure you let Laura know as soon as possible!

Lesson/Unit UbD Plans
I will be meeting with team leaders to discuss how we will be housing our plans for this year.  Until then, please make sure that you are keeping up with your lesson plans and that you are utilizing the TCE UbD Template for your planning.

Curriculum Resources
Continue thinking about how we are instilling a growth mindset in ourselves and all of our learners.  As we begin getting ready for beginning of the year goal setting for you and for you kiddos, think about this question. . .

How can one's mindset make a difference in accomplishing  goals and being/feeling successful?
As we are going through this year, make sure you are taking time for yourself and spending time with friends and family as you appreciate all the world has to offer.
