Parkdale Elementary Weekly Update
Happy February! It's almost time to plant those pees! The sunshine was nice again this weekend. I hope our IA staff enjoyed their three day weekend. Hopefully teachers found some gold nuggets in their training today to take back to the classroom and your work with students today.
I'll be out for a conference on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday of this week. Garrett Apland (our district ELL Coach) is going to be subbing for me. Please welcome him! He is working on his administrative coursework and is excited for the opportunity to complete some of his practicum days with us. I've invited him to stop in to classrooms and he is excited about the opportunity to learn about our school and to learn about your work with our students. Please contact him if you have something in particular that you would like to have his feedback on.
Have a great week.

Problem Solving - student message
We all have problems that can be hard to solve. Using the Second Step Problem-Solving Steps can help us solve our problems! The first step is S: Say the problem. When you have a problem, it’s very important to say what the problem is respectfully and without blame. Knowing exactly what the problem is will help you find the best solution! This week, remember to use your words and say the problem respectfully.
