Keeping Us On The Same Page and Best Practices Expectations for Schoolwide Events  If it is a schoolwide event, I expect everyone on the NAMS team to be there for our kids and each other.  If you can’t help out with a particular event, I expect you to communicate that to me. I will understand.

10.31.11 However, you should not “just not show” or not communicate with me. EC Students and After School Detention-I have had questions about whether EC students can be assigned ASD. In a word, “Yes.” However, please remember to communicate ASD assignments to me through email. I actually get calls from parents asking if I knew there child had ASD. I support you in using this consequence. Just keep me in the loop.

A picture is worth a thousand words. “Friday!” or maybe… “Monday!”
