Food for Thought

Volume 13

Mid-November

Even though the trees are bare and the weather has turned cold, we continue to grow students' academic prowess and character traits.
I've had the chance to present the focus of my walk-throughs to two of the SLC's, so please continue to be reflective on how we are implementing constructive responding with our students. Look for opportunities to build a collegial classroom, hallway, and school-wide environment.
Please enjoy this week's submissions, and feel free to discuss, implement, or tweak depending on your needs.
