Happy Friday! YOU are the MOST INCREDIBLE staff on the planet in the BEST school in the universe. I hope the love your school famiLEEs have shown you this week keeps you uplifted and motivated to tackle the last few weeks school. Did I just say the LAST FEW WEEKS OF SCHOOL? WOW! The year has flown by, and I know each of you are going to "finish strong."
Happy Mother's Day to all of you next Sunday- you are second moms to our learners each and every day!

The 2016 Honor Roll recognizes public elementary, middle, and high schools that demonstrate consistently high levels of student academic achievement, improvement in achievement over time, and reduction in achievement gaps. Congratulations to all of you for your hard work with our learners!

I know you are in full swing of end of year conferences, but it is the perfect time to end the year on a good note. Take some time and make a happy call to each of your learners. It will pay off for you as much as it will them, trust me!
SUMMER PROFESSIONAL LEARNING
Summer Professional Learning is now open for you to sign up. An email was sent to the entire district from Laurie O'Neill last week. Please take advantage of the opportunity to start earning your 2016-2017 flex time in areas of YOUR CHOICE this summer. You MUST sign up through Euphoria and unenroll if you are going to be absent. This will ensure that classes are full or canceled due to low enrollment. THANKS to those of you that already signed up, we see that in your professional portfolio in Euphoria.
RTI & END OF YEAR DATA
Designers, as the end of the year approaches, we want to make sure that all of your data for any RtI learners is up-to-date and in AWARE. If you have any learners currently on RtI, please schedule an RtI meeting on either Monday, May 15th or Monday, May 22nd to visit with Ashley and Angela about learner progress, end-of-year assessment data, and the required documentation. They are happy to walk you through what is expected to be in AWARE.
JUNE 2In order to not have to come in to work on Friday, June 2, you must accumulate 8 hours before the 2nd. GOOD NEWS- many of you have already earned some hours from attending our FamiLEE Science Night and will with our Movie Night. Hours can be accumulated from work done BEFORE 7:30 or AFTER 3:35. For example: Spring Conferences, storage room inventory, end of year checkout work. Time clock employees must also have accumulated 8 hours of comp time to ensure they don't have to come in on June 2nd. Part of your end of year check out form will ask you to log your 8 hours.
WEEKLY WALKTHROUGH FOCUS
We will still be visiting classes, but will focus on all domains for the remainder of the year.
