Monday AM Notes (on Tuesday), Jan 16 2024

Hello All!
I hope you enjoyed the long, wintery weekend! Another 4 day week ahead…

A few notes to get you going:
1) If you haven’t taken the Youth Truth survey yet please do so soon. The survey is open until January 26 but let’s see if we can all get it done early. I’d love to have 100% participation! Staff link: Thanks!

2) Please be sure you continue to share the school-wide theme with parents each week and include some of the activities you are doing or discussions you are having with your class. Ideally parents are engaging with themes with their kiddos at home and knowing what you’re doing at school is super helpful.

3) SIW this week will be a make-up from our missed Educator Network Day last week. Brian and Sara will lead this activity. Brian’s room at 1:30pm.

4) Cafe Amity on Wednesday hosted by Kindergarten.

5) DIBELS date has changed. Due to the snow day last week, some DIBELS days have been shifted. We are now February 7th. We’ll reschedule our Student Support Meetings and I’ll share the new date with you soon.

6) I sent you all an email last week regarding tightening up on some things around school. I could tell instantly that some of you took the request to heart and I am very appreciative! Please take a moment to re-read the email first thing this week to be sure you didn’t miss anything.

7) For those not using Lexia on a regular basis please remember that Lexia can be a valuable tool for helping some of our striving readers, giving them some needed extra practice.

8) Camp Amity is coming up February 8th! We’ll be sending permission slips home soon and we’ll need to get those lunch counts.

9) Amity Eats this month is Cuppa Yo this Thursday from 4pm until close. Please include in any communications you send home between now and then. Thanks!
