From Jennifer Martin
The final opportunity for co-teaching training this year has been scheduled! It will take place on January 31st from 8:00 – 3:00 at Central Office room 131. The training is appropriate for teams of teachers who have not been to a prior training. It’s designed for co-teaching pairs. If you have a team where one has been trained and the other has not, then one person can attend.
The training is designed as an overview of the four approaches to co-teaching with an emphasis on scheduling, role clarification, lesson planning, and other logistical issues.
Please email Danita Long if you would like to attend.
2nd Semester and Overdue Evaluations
From Sherry Samples
The second semester evaluations are now visible in Talent Ed Perform. If you did not complete a required 1st semester evaluation this will need to be completed before moving on to semester two. The timelines for second semester will remain the same and will not change even if first semester is completed late.
From Lisa Garcia
All students will be asked to pre-enroll for the upcoming (2017-2018) school year. This process will allow the district to begin to gather in accurate count of how many students will be enrolled in the district next year, and which schools they will be attending. Parents will be asked to review the information electronically, make any necessary corrections, and submit the updated information.
It is the expectation key staff (Counselors, Registrars and Principal Secretary???s) are trained, informed and provided the necessary information to be prepared for re-enrollment. Please note the time and date for the training below:

Give the Gift of Attendance this year!
All families want what is best for their children, but they don???t always realize how absences can add up to academic problems. Sometimes they allow children to miss school when it???s not absolutely necessary. This often happens before and after the winter holidays, as families try to squeeze a few more days out of the vacation season. Principals and teachers have an opportunity to reduce holiday absences by ensuring that parents and students understand the toll that absenteeism takes on achievement.
Encourage teachers to talk to students about the importance of showing up in the days before and after the holiday break.
Plan a special event for the first day after the holiday break. If possible, create a contest or find ways to recognize good attendance.
