April 25th


Melanie - very sad for us and our students, but are excited for your new opportunity. You have been a fantastic staff member at Underwood and you will be greatly missed.

With our projected student numbers, we are projected to have two less teaching positions then we currently have and there has not been a determination for the foundation funding positions. Our school staffing plan is due to human resources by May 13th. I have had conversations with individuals that this would impact for next school year. There has not be a decision for the shifting of teachers based on changes at grade levels.


Wellness Fair -- What a great day for our students. Thank you staff for being flexible with the schedule due to the rain. Thank you to the wellness committee for the hard work.

WCPSS Job Fair on Saturday -- I have heard from a couple of people that will be representing Underwood and assist with the interview process. Let me know if you are interested in joining us.

Magnet Mingle - Friday night 5:30-7:00 at Moore Square to talk with perspective teachers about being a magnet staff member.
 School Improvement team met on Monday afternoon and were able to review school data to create two proposed key process with a school goal of 100% growth for all students as measured by end of year assessments.
