Operation Getting Ready for Work Week - Part 2
Oh how I wish I could freeze time sometimes! The teachers are here! I am so blessed to have THE BEST group of para professionals that help me get all of this together prior to the teachers returning. Without them, none of this is possible.
Look at these people! BEST STAFF EVER! DREAM TEAM!
Bins, Binders, and Buckets Oh My!
Each teacher has a bin that contains "ALL THAT STUFF"! I'll go ahead and list so I can remember for next year. #TURNING40BRAIN
- Student Packets with the district required forms for Meet the Teacher Night
- 504 plans ready to go
- Emergency Folder with all the goods inside of it
- Good Office Visit cards (Thank you Ashley Jackson)
- Our teachers are a creative bunch. Each grade level makes their own student information sheet. They send me what they want and we copy it for them.
- Colored windshield cards for car riders (I'm proud of these this year! We put the procedures on the back! Boom!)
- Sub Favorite List with numbers
- Master Schedules printed in color
- Bus rider tags for backpacks (Not ready in time to make the bins this year, but soooo wanted to.)
- A sweet treat!
- Our Staff Binder which contains more good stuff! See previous post.
Like the Bobcat? He came from my friend Mary Kay. She's so talented!
We also give each teacher a new spirit shirt each year. The teachers love a practical and useful gift! I've worked with many t-shirt companies and these guys have excellent customer service and are very timely. http://www.elementaryspiritzone.com
But Wait, It's not cute!
It was time to call in an expert. I got together with my dear friend Reagan Tunstall! I said I'm thinking of spray painting a pot with a stick coming out of it. What do you think?? In typical Reagan fashion she knew exactly how to make it happen for me. We found some awesome inspirational quotes and bright colors and voila! Now I have centerpieces to use all year long for other school events. Yay! Oh and the pots are plastic and cost less than a dollar. This project was totally worth the black fingernails! #Astrobrights
Make this your best school year ever everyone! Good Luck and remember to balance and breathe!
