    Is anyone else going out of their minds?!

    -Running records, PALS, and MAP testing all due by October 10th
    -SLO, PPG, and student survey goals (yes, 3 goals) all due October 30th
    -Parent teacher conferences October 23rd, 28th, and 30th
    -4 meetings/conferences during the school day that I needed a sub for.
    -A staff meeting presentation (all teams create one) for October 28th
    -Grades due the first week of November
    -THE MEETINGS! OH, THE MEETINGS! Next week I have a meeting every day after school, 4 days at lunch, and 4 days in the morning.

    Not to mention I have a ridiculous amount of grade work due by October 28th. I really want to take a mental health day, but I need to save my sick days for when my baby is born. I just hate my job right now. :(

    Our PTC aren't until the 2nd week in November- but we have 7 days of testing this month, one baseline and two full state test simulations. Totally throws off the routine, I had it. I'm also giving a PD Monday and the following Monday in our afterschool PD time- things are definitely starting to get crazier. I miss our calm September.

    We're halfway through the month...
    I've celebrated my bday, am enjoying the fall foliage, have a few 'field trips' planned with dh.
    At school:
    Fill out eval for my student teacher...she's been AWESOME
    Finish my SGO paperwork...my team does one together, we each crunch our own numbers so it's not that bad
    1/2 day sub day next week for ScIP workshop...ST will follow plans, sub just there or legalities
    1/2 day sub day the week after for coaching visits to nearby district mentees...ST will follow plans as above
    Work with committee on PowerPoint to inform staff and families about new online standards based report cards

    I'm busy, but not overwhelmed.
