"Lead all about it" - January 10, 2020

Officer Seeley and Classrooms

As you may recall we have a school resource officer, Deputy Seeley. He has been in classes introducing and discussing safe and appropriate behaviors.

This next week, he will be visiting classrooms to talk about threatening language.

We appreciate his diligence to keeping our students safe.

Office Clothes Closet

The office clothes closet is in desperate need of boys sweatpants or athletic pants, sizes 6,7, & 8 and size 1 athletic shoes, both boys and girls.

If you can help in anyway, we would appreciate it.

Winter gear - A must!

Families -

The winter temps are going to start dropping soon. We go out for recess as long as the temperature with windchill, is above zero.

Please send your student in with working coats, snow pants, boots, hats and gloves.

If you are experiencing hardship in purchasing these items, please let the school know.


As we finish up our focus on the first three Habits that focus on "ME" and as we begin the new year, it is a good time to think about setting goals -even for our youngest learners.

The Importance of Goals Research has shown that the simple act of writing a goal greatly increases the chances of accomplishing the goal. If the goal is broken down into action steps and the action steps are tracked, goals have an even greater percentage of success. At school, your child may write his or her academic and personal goals in a Leadership Notebook. You will gain a lot of information on how your child is doing if you ask your child to tell you about his or her goals. The goals chosen are meaningful to your child so be sure to practice Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood. The Leadership Notebook idea can also be used in your home. Create goals such as reading together, eating dinner at the table, or doing an activity together. Involve everyone in the family in choosing a meaningful goal and action steps. Post the goal and the action steps in a visible place and be sure to track and celebrate progress!
