I feel so disorganized when administration comes to me the day before a new student comes or that day. At the beginning of the year, I give out syllabuses, schedules, writer’s notebooks, reading response logs, writing notebooks, and the list goes on and on to give to students, but when a new student comes, I can’t remember where I placed them. It’s so hard to get that information together and give it to the student, so I came up with a great idea for our Middle School Team. At the beginning of the year, I had asked the middle school teachers to give me their syllabuses and any information they give out to students at the beginning of the year. Then I made folders containing all of our important information for each grade level with a welcoming letter. The folders are housed in the vice principals office so that she can give it to the parents of the new student.
