New look for the library
If you haven’t been to the library since break, please stop by and check out our new look! While you’re there, let me show you where to find the collections relevant to you and your students. I bet you’ll be surprised by some of the amazing resources we have!
There are some excellent webinars being offered over the next few months. You can also search through recorded webinars on topics that interest you. Let me know if you need your account login details.
Semester 2 can be viewed in the MS Private Calendar.
You can use this form to let the MSALT2 students know what teacher announcements you would like to make. Please share this information before Thursday at 3:30pm each week so they have time to plan for the announcements.
This is where you can submit anything that you would like to be added to the Tiger Tales / WAG / SWAG.
This link has the final chaperone schedule for SY1819. We have also sent calendar invites to the chaperones involved in every event for the respective date and time.
It was great to see so many of you on Friday night. It’s a busy time of year so I know there were other events on. Thank you to all those who brought treats from your travels over the break. We have a full week with 3 consultants at AES. While it can be a challenge to juggle we are so fortunate to have the resources to bring these people here to work with us. Please remember to organise a substitute if you need coverage. Wednesday is a PD early release with Stevi Quate (unless you are a math teacher). Have a great week.
