PTSA Meeting

This morning I met with the PTSA and shared several items. Below is a very brief summary of each of the items.

  1. The SPLOST construction will add 50,000 square feet to our school. We will now have 150,000 square feet at Mabry!
  2. I have a meeting this week to explore the purchase of furniture and equipment for the new classrooms.
  3. Students are now taking the Performance Series, a nationally normed computer adaptive test that is correlated with the CRCT and should allow us to predict success on that state test.
  4. The 8th Grade Writing Assessment is scheduled for Wednesday, January 19th.
  5. Early Release Day is scheduled for Wednesday, January 26th.
  6. Buddy Pictures are scheduled for Friday, January 28th.
  7. The 7th Grade Science students will take a fieldtrip to Jekyll Island the week of January 27th.
  8. The changes in the federal overtime regulations are impacting schools. (See my post on January 6th.)
  9. The Power to Learn (1 on 1 laptop initiative) appears to be scheduled to go before the board during the first part of February.
  10. I have joined with those teachers who are now blogging as a communication tool for parents by starting this blog.
  11. All who are interested can take a tour of the construction immediately after your meeting today.
