We are in the process of selecting WEB Leaders for next year. The 7th grade students are writing essays and turning them in with an application by March 6th. On March 13th we will announce the leaders for next year after we complete the process of looking at attendance, behavior, leadership skills, etc. The students are excited to have the opportunity to be leaders at ESMS next year.
Techsperts are helping to wrap up the year. We have weeded out old books and are straightening shelves. It is a messy and tedious process. Teachers have been offered the opportunity to come select deleted books for their classrooms. I have order a bunch of new books this year and we are processing those as well.
Techsperts are also working on their leave their mark projects. Lots of neat things being discussed. Next year several of the Techsperts are going to go out and explore some of the other electives. I am excited for them to have this opportunity. My Techsperts classes will only have 3 or 4 students per hour. I am excited for those students to stay with me and help me make the LC a better place.
Spring break is fast approaching. It is March 16-20. After that we will start MAP testing. We are getting new carts and iPads to make that process happen. Following that. we will have one last in-service day, April 9 which will be half day for students and in-service in the afternoon. No school will be held on April 10.
With all of the snow days, our last day of school is scheduled for May 19. It will be a half day for students. The original date was May 7. I just hope we do not have many more. It will still be a long summer as we do not start back up unit August 24.
