ESU 4 Special Education - December 13, 2010

Monday Memo
December 13, 2010

Courageously leading a dynamic revolution in Education!


The Ugly Holiday Sweater Contest was an awesome success! The ESU 4 Staff looked 'great??' in their holiday finest, adding new meaning to the phrase "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder!" Congrats to Denise Buethe, Suzanne Hinrichs, Amy Jobe, Gail Palmer, and Catrina Zentner for receiving votes in the holiday-wear contest! Also, THANKS to the ESU 4 Life Skills students and staff for providing Ellen Stokebrand with a one-of-a-kind Holiday sweatshirt!


Are you willing to courageously lead the revolution??? 

Mileage Reimbursement.... As of January 1st, the IRS allowable rate for mileage reimbursement will change to $.51 per mile. Please note as you submit your December/January reimbursement.

Google Account information... update the office with your google account information so that we can share forms and documents. Here's the address; cut and paste this link in your web browser. (You should have it in your email as well!) 

Self Evaluations/Goals-action plans/Individual Development Plans... I am still missing self-evaluations and goals/development plans from Kathy N. 

LESSON REFLECTIONS were due November 19th!!!... I'm still missing some of these. Please get them in soon!!

Requests for Professional Development/Workshops...Send in a leave request WITH your original request to attend the training; sometimes we get your registration information but I really need that leave sheet. (This might help us in being more accurate and timely with leave forms as well.)

According to the New York Times, there is no scientific research that proves that life is serious.
So... Lighten up!!! 
LEAVE FORMS... Please, please, please submit leave forms as soon as you know about your leave! We are having trouble with getting all the forms we need, when we need. Also, if you are submitting a leave form so that you may attend a meeting/workshop, please attach a copy of the workshop flyer with the leave request. That will allow us to make sure we've got you registered! I don't want to be repetitive here (but I will!), your leave requests really need to match your professional goals. If I don't have your goals, I can't okay leave requests! Turn them in by the 15th of each month!!

NCECBVI has announced a Holiday Giving Project... they are sponsoring a family by collecting food and cash donations between now (11/29/2010) and December 14th. If you'd like to donate food, please bring your donations to our Staff meeting on Friday, December 10th. We will transport our gifts to NCEC the next week via van.  

GO Huskers!!!
Isn't it a great day to be a Husker fan????
The correct answer is... ALWAYS!!!
Big 12 Champs in Volleyball...
Big 12 North Champs in Football...
Both Men's and Women's basketball teams are finding ways to win...
There is a lesson to be learned there...
Never stop playing the game!
