I cannot believe that this is our last weekly update for the 2016-17 school year!   Where has the time gone?!?!  I hope that you all had a wonderful end to your school year and that you have been able to get a good jump start on cleaning your room for the summer.  Your schedule for next week is attached above.  We will plan to start together on Monday morning at 9:15 in Room 134.  We will begin as an entire EC team, reflect on our current year, talk about any 'lessons learned' from the end of this school year and begin to look to the year ahead.  I hope to get some ideas for new Professional Learning Groups for the 2017-18 school year.  Then, I will meet with just the Kindergarten team, and then just the Preschool team, to go over some items that only apply to your grade levels.

On Tuesday, I would like to sit down with each grade level to go over ordering and supplies for the upcoming school year, talk about instructional materials that are needed and possible 'Wish List' items.  Rachel Gemo will meet with the entire SBPS faculty and staff at 11:30.

On Wednesday and Thursday, I will be meeting with you all individually to go over your end of the year checklist and to do 'check out' with each person.  I will have a sign up outside of my office by Tuesday for this.  Remember, all technology items need to be turned into and signed off on by Louie before you can check out with me.

Have a great weekend - stay cool!

Please use this link to sign up for a meeting time.  Please allow each person 30 minutes to meet with me.  After you have signed up for a time, please email me with your day and time (being careful not to erase anyone else's sign up).  I would like all meetings to be complete by Friday, June 2nd.  If you cannot find a time that works with your schedule, come see me, we'll see what we can do!


Please be sure to check not only the Breaking News on the dashboard daily, but you need to check both Early Childhood and the Inclusion and Instruction tab each week.
