Announcements and Events

Field Trips—As you make field trip plans, if you have a student who takes medication at school, some provision needs to be in place for the student having that medication. Our options are:

  • One of our school system nurses could go on the trip.
  • One of our instructional assistants who has been trained in the administration of medication could go (Mrs. Monroe or Mrs. Jackson).
  • The child's parent could go.
  • If you are taking a chaperone who happens to be a nurse, that person could give the medication with the parent's written permission.

Staff Room—On the counter in the Staff Room are quite a few items that are free for the taking. We will let those stay there until the middle of next week and then throw away what ever is left.

Science Adoption—As you are looking at the textbook samples, first and foremost, look to see how well the book covers the material in the Course of Study. Mrs. Graves is putting in your boxes papers related to the course of study adoption. You will receive several copies of the Science Course of Study for your grade level, one for each of the publishers who have sent us materials. Mrs. Graves needs to have the form where you indicate your 1st, 2nd, and 3rd choice by Feb. 18.

Playground Benches—I have received input so far from one teacher on a proposed location for the new benches.

Make-up Day—Please have your students put in their planners that February 20 is a school day to make up for the day missed due to Katrina.

New events for your calendar:

RSA-1 Deferred Compensation Plan and Flexible Benefits Plan. The meeting will begin at 2:50 in the library. Attendance is optional.
