September 24 Edition

Fall Festival Family Fun Day

We will have Fall Festival Family Fun Day on Friday, Oct. 9th from 5 to 7 pm here at Nesbit. Relay for Life and PTA are partnering together for this outstanding event.

School Events Sign up

Hello Everyone,


We are asking each certified staff member to attend one afterschool event. Ms. Torres sent out a sign up genius link in an e-mail. We will post the link on the eClass training page. Let's work together to Nesbitize!

Nesbit Learning Cohort

A group of teachers have been selected to participate in the Nesbit Learning Cohort. Two teachers from each grade level have been selected to participate. Teachers were selected based on their leadership and willingness to redeliver instructional content to their grade level. This professional learning community is going to learn about gradual release as an instructional strategy. Our coaches have planned an entire day of learning for Cohort members. Cohort members and coaches together will redeliver the information covered during the session with each grade level during NIT sessions. I am excited about how we are going to learn and grow from this experience.

eClass

Lessons developed in September should be delivered by the end of October. Please continue to work on your collaborative eClass lesson that will be delivered in November. Nesbit student usage continues to increase. Last week it was 13% and it increased this week to 19%. Continue to provide students with meaningful learning opportunities using eClass.

The following Teachers have logged the most time this week on their C & I eClass course pages:

  • Brittney Thornbury
  • Juso Jakupovic
  • Joseph Barber
  • Kirsten Leadingham
  • Joanna Troxel
  • Taquelia Thomas


Each of these teachers have worked diligently on their course pages. YOU ROCK!

Thank you

Thank you for doing an excellent job with parent conferences. The interpreters, teachers, and support staff made parents feel welcome. Our vision is to pursue excellence by educating, equipping, and empowering. Our conferences propelled us forward toward our vision.

It’s All About Me by Jacki Sellmansberger

How many times did I say to my daughter as a teenager, “It’s not all about you!” Of course, she has now turned into a beautiful young woman and mother and is saying that to her own children.

But here’s what I want you to hear just now. . . just for a few minutes over the next few days, find some time to make it “all about you”. We have all worked very hard since August 3rd, and we deserve a break. Whatever it is that you love to do, make time to do it! Is it reading, hiking, shopping, cooking, eating, sitting and doing nothing, or. . . ?

Everyone makes demands of you, and most of them are good, maybe even necessary! But STOP! GO TO PANERA’S FOR AN HOUR. You might even see me there, reading and enjoying my favorite bagel!

“Pay-Day Friday” will be this coming week. Orders will have to be in and paid for by Wednesday. Watch for details on how to order from Chick-Fil-A this Friday!

Remember to keep Jocelyn Garrison in your thoughts and prayers this week. She had surgery on Wednesday. I will send out her address later today.
