Monday AM Notes, December 13 2021

A very happy Monday to you all–the last one of 2021!
I hope you had a wonderful weekend and that you’re charged up for a week of fun before the break! 5 more days and you’re off for a 16 glorious days! My family and I are headed to Mexico and I am beyond excited! I hope you have something amazing planned, too.

Last week was really amazing- Camp Amity, Kinder Community Time, and Grade 1 Dolfin cookies! Who could ask for more. Thanks for bringing the joy last week!

A few notes for this week
1) We have to get one more Earth Quake and Fire Drill in before break. We’ll do this on Tuesday at 9:20–EQ then fire drill. Please remember that EQ drills are Drop, Cover, and Hold. We’ll follow the EQ drill with a fire drill and should be done by recess.

2) Staff meeting on Tuesday at 2:45. Ray’s room.

3) SIW time is all yours this week.

4) Community Time on Friday hosted by Grade 2 at 1:30pm. Let’s plan to spend the rest of the afternoon outside after CT (weather permitting).

5) With the snow falling (finally!!!) it’s a good time to talk with your kiddos about snow play outside. The bottom line is this–no throwing snow at others. Please emphasize this with your class before they go outside for fist recess on Monday.

Also, in your communications with parents please encourage them to send their child to school with snow gear to help keep them dry and warm when we are outside.

6) Formal evaluations for some of you (Lauren, Sadie, Brian, Sara, Haley, Brad) begin in January. Here’s a link to sign up for a pre-eval meeting with me:Pre-Eval Meetings. Please sign up now and I’ll remind you when we get closer.

Lastly, as I have done for the last few years, in lieu of staff gifts I have made a donation to the Deschutes Children Foundation ( on behalf of the Amity Staff. This is a great local organization that provides many supports for children and families in our community.

December 20-31: BREAK!!!
January 3: First day back
January 13: EBISS–I’ll send info after the break

Here’s to a great week ahead!!
