Moving and Shaking at McIntire Elementary

So many wonderful things are happening at McIntire Elementary! We are well over 1000 positive referrals! Students go above and beyond being respectful, responsible and safe. Our negative behavior referrals are dramatically down from last year. Great job, McIntire students!

Just a reminder that Grandparents'/Special Friends' Day is this Friday, October 3rd from 1-3. This is a great way to experience a "day in the life" of a McIntire student. Please be sure to fill out the RSVP form that was sent home yesterday in Monday folders and return to school. Thank you!
Our 1000th and 1001st positive referral!
Our next McIntire Online Read Aloud is set for this Sunday, October 5th from 6:00-6:30. Invitations have gone out from Anymeeting.com. If you did not get an invitation or if you have others you would like me to invite, please email me at bhouf@fulton58.org. Don't forget to check your spam folder to be sure it wasn't delivered there by mistake. I am working to change the format to Google Hangouts via YouTube so that we can watch the read aloud live as well as record for those that are not able to join.

TeamingUp4Tech: Parent Technology & Learning Nights beginning at McIntire!

We are excited to announce the first Parent Technology & Learning Night which is a new monthly “21st Century Learning Series” designed to educate and connect parents and community members of McIntire Elementary School. The first event is being held on Thursday, October 23rd from 6-7 pm in the McIntire Library. We will then do an online read aloud from 7-7:30, to show those not familiar how to take part. The focus of the first event will be on digital safety. We will also explore the technology tools used as means of communication at McIntire, including Twitter, Facebook, blogging and online read alouds. This will be a hands-on, interactive session, so feel free to bring your favorite device. Chromebooks will also be available to borrow for the session. Parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, family friends are all invited! Activities will be available in the gym for school age children. Looking forward to seeing you there!
