This week's Shout-Outs:

I would love to give a shout out to Amy for lending me her snow pants on Wednesday for duty when it was freezing cold!

- Sandy

Peter-for doing a fabulous job with the class while I was away! Micheline (and any others) who are leading the assembly for me on Monday. I am so grateful! All Staff- What a great school we have!

- Mary B.

Megan Richards definitely deserves a shout out for this past week. Without any hesitation, Megan stayed on Friday afternoon to help me get organized for next week's change in classroom schedules and to prepare the various paperwork and folders required for Tuesday night's Kindergarten Open House. She was still diligently working after the end of day bell rang with a smile on her face! In addition, Megan readily stayed a few extra hours on other days this past week to help with a busy administrative workload on our first week back. Great teamwork!

- Lauren

Great Stuff, Great Staff.

Here are a few photos of great things happening around the school last week. Don't be shy to text me your own photos to include in these weekly newsletters. (Lots of people do!). I can't always get around to see everything, but I love to share what is happening in your classrooms. Click on any of the smaller photos to zoom in!
