PDP/FINAL RETENTIONS, etc...Important Information Regarding EOY PDPs.  By now you should have been uploading and completing your final evidences for End of Year PDPs.  I should aso have ALL Retention possibilities sheet. We would like to go over both after your last observation conference and before the summative.  We are well into final observations so do your best to complete your EOY pdps. asap.  Be brief with evidence and straight to the point so that it is easily evident that you completed your PDP. If you still have a family engagement night or parent activity not held yet, upload a copy of the flier as evidence.  If you have questions, please feel free to ask.  I will expect that you are well planned out in regards to completing your PDP. There will be no carry over to next year.  

 Please come out to Thursday's PTA Meeting and Spring Production to support our students and staff. A lot of work goes into these presentations and we need to be there for each other, especially our students.
