12 Week Student Challenge-Week 7

2:2:5 THAT CHILD! We are half-way there! Don’t give up! Have you noticed a difference in class with this child? Have you seen any improvement in their work ethic, attention, respect to you/others? This week is going to be a hard challenge…you can do it. It only takes two minutes for five days. That is ten minutes for the week. You ready? 2 people (just you and that child) for 2 minutes for 5 days to sit down to talk about…LIFE! You know their interests, hobbies, favorites (unless you skipped week 4-if so; go back and start over at week 4). You do not have to be in the classroom, try the lunch room or recess…watch the other students when you go to that child and kneel down to talk to them (JUST TWO MINUTES) and pat them on the back with a smile as you walk away. I bet your shoulders will be strong and you will be smiling…so will THAT CHILD’s. I would love to hear what you noticed during this time! DO IT for FIVE days straight! Find different times to check in with them!


We are so excited that one of our students has been selected as one of the top 6 finalists of this year’s “I LOVE CCISD” Kinder Art Contest and their art will be placed on notecards and sold at the upcoming CCEF fashion show. Savannah Robbins is the artist! Way to go Savannah and Mrs. Bass!
