Monday AM Notes (on Tuesday) January 17 2022

Good Morning All!
I hope you had a great, long 3 day weekend! The timing couldn’t have been better, eh? I got out and did some cross country skiing on Saturday and Sunday, and gots lots of chores done on Monday. I hope you got out and did something fun!

A big thanks for all your flexibility these past few weeks as we fight the good fight to stay open. I sincerely appreciate all you are doing!

A few notes to get you going on this 4 day week:
1) Huge thanks for the super productive Student Support Meetings last week! We hope you left your meeting feeling supported and with a clear picture of support for your students going forward. If anything is unclear, please ask. I will be sending an email later this week highlighting a few observations from the meetings.

2) We will continue to try and be outside for lunch as much as possible and it looks like the weather is set to cooperate this week! I’m also asking that all snacks be eaten outside when possible, and that we avoid eating indoors whenever possible.

3) A few housekeeping notes that will help everything run a little smother:
*During afternoon recess we need one teacher to grab the red bag with the bell in it and commit to watching the time. I am not always out at the afternoon recess so it’s very helpful if one of you takes this on each recess.
*Please lock your doors at lunch-we still have lots of kiddos coming in to use the bathroom (or under the pretext of using the bathroom) and end up in classrooms. This is a safety issue that we can easily avoid.
*Please do all you can to be aware of who your students are leaving with after school. We have had a few instances when we couldn’t find a student after school and it’s a terrible sinking feeling not knowing where they are. Please be vigilant and keep your students nearby until they leave.
*If you don’t already do so, please engage your students in end of day classroom clean up. The cleaner the room (mostly floors and tables), the more Jeremy can focus on other things in the room that need attention.
*We are not allowing students to play with balls after school so if you see a student with one please ask them to put it away.

4) As a reminder several of you have formal evaluations coming up this month- Lauren, Sadie, Brian, Sara, Haley, Brad. Check here if you have forgotten your meeting time with me:Pre-Eval Meetings. And please be prepared for the meeting by filling out the Pre-eval form. Thanks!

5) SIW this week is teacher directed/prep.

6) The district is once again administering the Youth Truth survey. If you haven’t already done so please take a few minutes to take the survey very soon: ytsurvey.org/acestaff22.

Upcoming
February 1: DIBELS
February 4: No School

Here’s to a great, and healthy, week ahead!
Andy

  1. I have read your article carefully and I agree with you very much. This has provided a great help for my thesis writing, and I will seriously improve it. However, I don’t know much about a certain place. Can you help me?

  2. I don’t believe your article’s title drift hunters 2 is relevant to what it’s about, haha. I jest since the article left me with some misgivings.

  3. Your style is unique compared to other folks I’ve read stuff from.
    Many thanks for posting when you’ve got the opportunity, Guess
    I’ll just book mark this page.
