Agenda-Here is the AGENDA for August 10th-12th.
Teacher Kiddos-We have several teacher kiddos in our building. (ME included!) It is a great perk to have your own children in the building. However, PLEASE be considered of other co-workers and their work space. If your children are not enrolled in Tiger Tales, they need to be in your classroom before/after school. They should not be hanging out in the workroom, library, gym, playground, computer lab....
Math CAP/Curriculum/Assessments etc.-There will be a new Math website released this week. If you have made copies of anything or started planning, you are going to want to double check the website in a couple days. This also applies to writing and writing rubrics etc. You are going to want to wait until you hear from the curriculum dept. before finalizing plans. Just wanted to give you a heads up.
Expectations-You will need to read this PACKET of information by Thursday, August 13th. This should help answer some of your questions regarding dress code, hours, lesson plan expectations, and more.
