Announcements and Events

  1. Flu shots—Check your e-mail for a schedule of the order Mrs. Scroggins will be keeping classes. (Only those who e-mailed me saying they needed a class covered will be getting that e-mail.) Those who do not need classes covered may simply come when it is convenient. Remember to bring your insurance card and the form that you were to complete.

2. I have posted information about the Missoula Children's Theatre on GrahamSchool.blogspot.com so that parents and students can have a heads up on the auditions. You can view that information here.

3. AR Marking Period Progress Report—I have put this report in your boxes.

We are striving for an average percent correct answers of at least 85. You can see how your students did in this area each of the first two six weeks.

You can see how point totals are progressing. Hopefully the students earned more points the 2nd six weeks than 1st.

Median of Points Earned—Here is how your “average” students did. The median would be the student in the middle. Half of the students scored better. Half of the students scored worse.

Average Book Level—Hopefully, this number rises as you go through the year. Students should be reading more challenging material as they go through the year.

Percent At-Risk—If you are seeing less than 20%, that is pretty good.

  1. Reminder—Please close out of the Accelerated Reader program before you leave at the end of the day. (This would apply to STAR as well.) We all simply need to get in that habit. Most of us are anyway, but it only takes one who is not. If even one person is in the program, I cannot backup the database nor run the data doctor, and trying to find which computer is still running the program is a real research project. I basically wind up having to shut down and restart the server in order to get the offending computer out of the program. When someone else assumes this responsibility, they don’t need to be faced with that problem.
  1. Graham Christmas Party—Just a reminder that Davonia and I are inviting everyone to our house, Monday, Dec. 12 for a Christmas party (6:30). Spouses or significant others are invited. I have put out a sheet in the Staff Room where you can sign up for what you would like to bring.
