We are looking forward to being FRONT AND CENTER at Convocation on Friday. Doors open at Irving Bible Church at 7:45 and the event starts at 8:30. Plan to arrive at 8:00 so you can get a seat. This is a FUN event where the whole district gathers to kick off the school year. We will be inspired by Wendy, be entertained by our school board, and listen to George Couros (author of our book study Innovator's Mindset). We will take a group picture on the stage at the conclusion of Convocation and are expected back on campus at 1:00. We will cover some "Nuts and Bolts" (approx an hour) and then give you the remainder of the afternoon to work in your spaces.
BEFORE / AFTER SCHOOL DUTY
Don't forget that all staff is on before and after school duty the second through fifth day of school. It is about learner safety and showing our parents that this is a priority at Lee. THANK YOU! On the first day, learners and parents can come straight to your spaces upon arrival (doors unlock at 7:25). We request that specials and all support staff help us by guiding learners and parents to their destinations.
Ashley and I would like to meet each and every learner the first week of school. Please sign up HERE to bring your class to our offices.
FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL
Since parents have permission to walk their learners to your class on the first day of school, we thank you for being prepared to welcome them and to ready to leave a great first impression of their first day of school with YOU! Remember that this first week is about building SOLID relationships with the children and their famiLEEs. Please, by the end of the first week, pick up the phone and call EVERY family. Tell them/leave a message sharing something special about their child. It will pay huge dividends to take the time to do this! My expectations for you, this first week, are to ensure that school is SO FUN and EXCITING, that the learners do not want to leave at the end of each day.
- Please plan to complete your Digital Literacy Lesson, cover Responsible Use Rules, and complete first log-in by September 5. A reminder is on the faculty calendar.
- Sign off on the Lee Campus Handbook in the front office
Thank you, Sam for sharing some questioning resources with me. I put these in a folder for you to access when you need them. They align beautifully with our CBL Training non-negotiables. We can revisit these with questioning support throughout the year.
