Regional School District No. 6
Principal's Message for May 11, 2017
Elementary Celebration of Learning & Music
Thank you to everyone who came out to Wamogo last night for a
celebration of learning and music!
We started reading a book called What Gritty Kids Do When No One is Looking during our whole school morning meetings. In the book, authors Jim and Caleb Grant share thirteen characteristics of grit. This week we have talked about and recognized the characteristic of gratitude.
We began by thanking two amazing teachers who are retiring this year. Joanne Woodington and Carol Leavitt have over 70 years of combined service teaching the children of Region 6. They are both incredible educators, and have been a mainstay at Warren School for many years. We will miss them so much, but wish them the very best as they look forward to the next chapter in their lives.
Next, we thanked the person who takes care of all of us on a daily basis. National Nurse Appreciation Day was May 6th, and we showed our appreciation for our school nurse, Michele Ferrer. We presented her with an Aloe plant, which we thought was the perfect gift since it is known for its healing properties.
The remainder of this week has been spent celebrating our teachers during National Teachers Appreciation Week. The FOWS provided a beautiful luncheon, complete with tea sandwiches, desserts, and a beautiful table decoration. The children presented their favorite teachers with cards, drawings, and flowers.
This has indeed been a wonderful week of gratitude!
Angela Rossbach, Ed.D.
