Monday AM Notes, May 10

Greetings all,
I hope you had an amazing weekend, and a big happy Mother’s Day to all the mamas! I got to spend the weekend with the youngest member of our family–it’s been a few months and she has grown up so much! This is Aurelia at the sweet age of 7 months, and a picture of the treehouse Kaila and I stayed in a few miles outside of Corvallis.

A few notes to get you going this morning:
1) Big thanks to those of you who were able to help out with Bike and Walk to School event last week–it was a huge success, and more importantly it was a nice community bonding experience!

2) SIW this week starts at 1:30pm. We’ll meet in Matt’s room so we can use the projector. We’ll be discussing what it means to be a “good fit” at Amity as we prepare for upcoming interviews. Please give this some thought prior to the meeting.

3) Last week I sent you a copy of the End of Year Celebrations (Grows and Glows). Please take some time to chat with at least one other teacher before Wednesday’s SIW time.

4) I’m trying a little experiment with re-zoning in an effort to expand options in each zone. I’ll cone off each zone early Monday AM and it would be great if you brought students out a little early for first choice time to orient them.

Zone 1: 4 swings, jungle gym, play structure, one side of wall ball, slice of field
Zone 2: 2 swings, climbing wall, basket ball court, slice of field
Zone 3: Four square, Gaga, table area, slice of field

5) Grade 2 will host Community Time this week, Kinders next week.

6) Planned staff meetings for the rest of the year:
*Tuesday, May 18, 2:45-3:30pm
*Wednesday, May 26, 2pm
*Tuesday, June 1, 2:45-3:30pm
June 2 and 9 will be time for you to write End of Year Celebrations
Save the afternoon of June 17, our last day of school, for some kind of social gathering–it’s a tradition!

7) School cleaning schedule. Several of you have asked what the cleaning schedule is now that we’re back at Amity. Tom has shared the following with me-if you feel that things on this list are not getting done as indicated please let me or Tom know. Thanks!

8) Please drop by my office this week to sign your SLGG. You need to sign now and again at the end of the year.

9) Reminder: No art again this week.

10) Just a heads up I’ll be out on Wednesday, May 19 to be with my gal who is having a knee operation…finally. I’ll just be attending to a heavily medicated patient so I’ll be available by text and phone all day.
