The Weekly Hoot

January 21-25, 2013

Greetings All -

Can you say three day weekend???!!!! I know that I sure can! It is crazy to me that January is over halfway done! I have been in a lot of classrooms this week, and I am seeing awesome things going on as usual! Please make every attempt to make it to one of the Community Meetings that the district has scheduled this week. I believe it is important for parents to see that we are a cohesive unit and that you as teachers are interested in what their thoughts are in our students' education. I hope all of you have a tremendous weekend. Your homework is to go out and do something fun with your family. I will see you all on Tuesday! Have a great one!

Soaring With You This Year,


Owl Wings this Week Go To...

the Kindergarten teachers for bringing "real world" into the classroom. Mr. Core, Mayor Gail Sowell, and myself were invited this week to the kindergarten classes to discuss being a leader and what a leader does. It was a fun experience, and hopefully helped the students connect what is going on in the real world with what they are learning in the classroom.
