Electrical Outlets for future TVs

I recently requested 7 outlets be added in our buuilding for future tv locations. The idea behind the TVs is to provide a place for each grade level to have an area to display student work and provide student recognition. I will try to talk to each of you today about where you grade level would like their outlet placed for a tv. If I don't get to you please email me or put a sticky on the wall in the hallway. There will be one tv per grade level. Right now they are just installing outlets and they are coming out Tuesday to mark locations for install.

Science of Happiness

*Disclaimer- This video below was shared at our Senior Leadership meeting last week. It's a great video about how expressing gratitude can actually increase your happiness but there are a couple inappropriate words. It is still worthy of a share but it should be an ADULT ONLY video though.
The Science of Happiness - An Experiment in Gratitude

Reading A-Z Resource Share

Kyle recently attended a training for ELP Tutors and has a helpful resource to share with us after HammerTime.


Sam Berns gave a great TED talk a couple years ago about being happy. It was a good pick me up after a long week.
