Transcript of 1st Faculty Meeting Boeve - 13'14

the Marshmallow

Explorer Elementary 2013 '14
My Life's Journey
✦Build the Tallest Freestanding Structure:

1) The winning team is the one that has the tallest structure measured from the table top surface to the top of the marshmallow. That means the structure cannot be suspended from a higher structure, like a chair, ceiling or chandelier.

2) The Entire Marshmallow Must be on Top: The entire marshmallow needs to be on the top of the structure. Cutting or eating part of the marshmallow disqualifies the team.

3) Use as Much or as Little of the Kit: The team can use as many or as few of the 20 spaghetti sticks, as much or as little of the string or tape. The team cannot use the paper bag as part of their structure.

4) Break up the Spaghetti, String or Tape: Teams are free to break the spaghetti, cut up the tape and string to create new structures.

5) The Challenge Lasts 18 minutes: Teams cannot hold on to the structure when the time runs out. Those touching or supporting the structure at the end of the exercise will be disqualified.

6) Ensure Everyone Understands the Rules: Don’t worry about repeating the rules too many times. Repeat them at least three times. Ask if anyone has any questions before starting.

Keep It Simple..
- Everything falls under the umbrella of
what is "Best For Kids"

- Hire Good People and Support the Heck
out of them!!

- Maintain the Crystal Focus on Changing the
Dichotomy of learning..

"Go To" Statement to Kids and Parents

Mr. Boeve - "My most important job is to
make sure all 325 students are SAFE from
the minute they leave the house til the second
they get back to their home..."
Visitor Check -in

` Sign - in the Office
` New Safety door procedures
` All Visitors must have "Visitors" Badge

` Panic button in the office
Staff Meetings
~ Staff meetings are Fridays @ 7:45
` I will let everyone know by end of the day
on Wed. if NO meeting - I do NOT want to meet
for the sake of meeting
` Be on Time
` Dr. Rasmussen will cont. w/ Charlotte Danielson

- All Teachers required to be in Lab w/ students... Feel free to switch times of fill out for open times..
- K-2 do NOT have to go to the LAB
- Future vision is that Tech is no longer
a place you go to.. It is "INVISIBLY INTEGRATED"
into all we do.. District has invested GREATLY.. It will only become more prevelant and it is what is "Best for Kids" if utilized effeciently and correctly (not longer a fact recital society.., see Smarter Balanced)
- My experiences w/ TECH - "UTILIZE TRAVIS"
- GOOGLE DOCS... I will utilize extensively.. more to come as far as some trainings and getting everyone set up on hsdtiger.org accounts
Stop and Thinks
Still policy (I don't really understand)

From what I can tell we want to lessen Stop and Think
and increase "pawsitive notes"

Please use your discretion.. We will cont. to evaluate

Parking - please park in back rows to allow for parents and visitors
Classroom Schedules - Get to Sue ASAP.. if they change please just email the change to Sue

Tiger Tuesday - We will try to do ALL online unless you need a sig? Correct?
Lunch and Attendance - Please have to Sue by 9 am
Switching Duties - Just have it covered
Supervision - Never or on Extreme RARE occasions kids should ALWAYS be supervised
- THINGS Part Deaux
Library 1st Quarter - Please come to library early to help children pick out "good fit books"
Blue Forms - As I stated I will try to be accommodating can help cover etc.. so you do not necessarily have to fill ourt blue forms.. otherwise get them in.. See me if you have questions
Lesson Plans.. - Please have them done in some form.. Do not have to be in-depth.. Do not believe you can even have done into far future.. We differentiate and individualize.. But be prepared never know when you need a sub
- Things - PArt Trey
PTO - Jan Norwine is President.. Extremely supportive and want to help in anyway.. Please Reciprocate!.. Please run any PTO requests by me first
