WEEK OF October 2nd # 9

● We have a Growth Mindset ● We Keep all Staff & Every Student in Mind ● We Commit & Follow Through ●



  • Thank you to Mrs. Cortez for demonstrating the core value of growth mindset for stepping up and volunteering to teach our new 5/6 combination class! Classes in 5th & 6th grade had 32-35 students, so this will help decrease the number of students in those clas
  • ses. The kids being placed in the 5/6 combo class are beyond LUCKY to have you as their teacher!
  • Thank you to the 5th & 6th grade teachers for keeping all staff and every student in mind when you took on the difficult task of nominating your students to the combination class. We know that you’ve build relationships with all your students and it is not an easy decision to pick students to leave, but you were very thoughtful with your choices and I’m sure they will be successful!


  • GQ – Gentlemen of Quality – Mr. Reggie and the GQ Committee are looking for gentlemen to join GQ. If you have someone to nominate please submit the form that was left in your box into Mr. Reggie by October 6th.
  • New Character Strengths: Please take some time with your class to teach and celebrate our two new Q2 Character Strengths: Curiosity & Self-Control (school-work)
  • Q1 Data: All data should be input into Illuminate by this evening.
  • Email Groups: Feaster Charter now has a whole staff email group, FeasterStaffGroup, that should be used instead of the Feaster Distribution Email. You can find this by going to the groups section under your folders on your Outlook Email. To make sure that your email shows in everyone’s inbox, make sure you click the icon at the bottom that says, “group broadcast” when you scroll over it. Please see Heather if you need support using this.
  • Imagine Learning: ILE is holding a contest for teachers who have their students using their program for 15-20 minutes 5days/week. This is something the company is doing to encourage continued usage. By having your students do this, you will be entered to a drawing to win various prizes
  • Donors Choose: Mrs. Walker is available to help anyone who is interested in funding a project for your classroom find the resources or set up a Donors Choose.
