Monday Morning Memos - September 12 - September 16, 2016

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, BLINK, Monday...

WOW, that was one of the shortest weekends I've experienced in a long time. Not sure why, but it just flew by...and here we are on Monday again! At least we have a wonderful holiday to get us going on Monday morning...

Happy National Day of Encouragement Day! What a better way to start a Monday than on National Encouragement Day! SO....YOU'VE GOT THIS!!

Although we are only at the beginning of school it is important to remember to keep the same positive energy you had the first days of school. You all are amazing teachers and I love seeing the joy in your students' eyes when you engage them in learning each day.

Thank you for all you do each and every day! Hang in there...Friday's coming! Let's pass the encouragement on, to our students, and to each other!

Here is a great article from Edutopia on staying positive in trying times: http://www.edutopia.org/blog/teaching-staying-positive-trying-time-heather-wolpert-gawron

I wish you all a WONDERFUL week #BeTheSpark


MAP Schedule

I feel confident that you have already checked to make sure you know your user name and password for the NWEA website. As always, you WILL NOT create your test session. I have already created it for you. And...as a reminder, you will go to Test Session and uncheck the box that says "created by me" and enter my name in the "created by box." Once you start typing my name it should automatically pop up. Here are your test session names. Make sure you click on the correct session please - Especially those doing small groups because I sent up both Monday and Tuesday test sessions so double check the DATE. Thanks!!

Looking Head...

October 5th will be Walk To School Day. I would really like to have a good turn out for this event. I would also like to invite some of you to join in as well. Of course we will need staff at school to supervise those that will not be walking. Please email me your thoughts about who to write to and whether you would like to do individual student letters or one class letter. I think it will be a great event!

October 22nd is Walk For Life! Our school name is CFA Rack Pack but Laura said someone took it - UGH! We're using it anyway :-) There will just have to be 2 Rack Packs!! Thank you to Laura who is our team captain for this event. Please do plan to walk with us. My two boys are walking as well. Bring your family!! Here is the website to sign up for the event http://events.palmettohealthfoundation.org/site/TR/Events/General?team_id=9384&pg=team&fr_id=1090 and something to attach to your Facebook page, if you have one, or send in an email to friends - Laura's personal story http://events.palmettohealthfoundation.org/site/TR?px=1015361&fr_id=1090&pg=personal.
