February 15

Carly’s Kids- Don’t forget that Carly’s Kids has $$$ for you to spend on outdoor education activities for your students. Let me know if you are interested and I will provide a grant application (very simple).

FAN- FAN update from Dana-

  • Boundary changes and changes in school/district demographics will potential impact staffing.  I’ll contact site administrators prior to any information being shared with Advocates.  I’ll do my best to make a few changes as possible.
  • If your school is considering a fund raiser that will benefit FAN, please give me a call first.  Ensuring that we follow Board Policy and Business Office protocols will help get the funds to the right place and not cause any further work for staff.
  • As we approach evaluation time, I’ll be in touch if your FAN Advocate is due for an evaluation.  I love having input from site administrators when completing the evals.  
  • As always, if you need anything FAN related, please don’t hesitate to call or email.  

Student Shadowing-  From Lora- First of all, I want to thank all of you who took the time to shadow a student. While I know everyone is busy, I believe the opportunity to see the world of school through a student’s eye makes us all better leaders. I encourage all of us to make this a part of our routine once or twice a year! And now for the news you’ve all been waiting for…the WINNING horizontal team: our elementary team, with 58.6% of administrators participating! Middle school was close behind, with 58.3% (and yes, Eric Powell, I included you in the middle school count J). High school had a 50% participation rate.  Elementary leaders, I know you have a casual gathering on Thursday, February 21st. Although I can’t join you, drinks are on me! I will make sure either Dana or Gary has my credit card…

So, if I have Lora’s credit card I won’t be at the happy hour…Dana is the safer bet for Lora.

School Visit- Please schedule a time for my next visit. We will do a mid-year slgg review and I’d like to visit a few classrooms and maybe even see some of your SDP in action.

Helmet Assemblies– Be sure to sign up for The Center’s helmet assembly if you haven’t already. It looks like we still have 4 schools that need to schedule.

Immunizations- There has been some confusion around immunizations, homelessness, and registering students. Tami Pike developed this flow chart to help. One important piece is that if you think a student is homeless, please contact Mara in order to verify.  Please let me know if you have any questions.

That’s all for now. Thanks for all of your hard work. It is appreciated! Have a great three day weekend.
