MS Staff Weekly Memo – April 26, 2015

What’s On My Mind:

Hi Everybody,

Please forgive the brevity of this week’s newsletter, but I have been out of town for the past weekend celebrating life, love, and happiness with some of my dearest childhood friends.  I admit that I am sliding back into town in total “catch up” mode, and I need to wade through mounds of email, but I am delighted to report that I had a great time and my stomach is officially sore from belly laughing. 🙂  I want to extend a huge thank you the colleagues who stepped up and covered for me in my absence.  You are appreciated and valued more than you know!  May this week be a pleasant, productive one for all of us.

Nuts/Bolts/Reminders/Tips:
We will be finishing up “formal” observations over the next two weeks, so expect Juli in and out of your classrooms.  And as always, feel free to give me a job!  I love interacting with the students, so I would be delighted to help in any way possible.
Go ahead and begin to think about year-end close out.  The close out list will come to you soon but the NUMBER #1 challenge is collecting all EOG books, novels and calculators.  It is critical that you begin to figure out NOW if students have lost things so that they can be paid for before school is out.
Thought for the Week:
life is better when
