Team Update, April 6th

We are one team, with one mission, to be our best together!

Celebrations and "family/team" updates!!!!

  • No birthdays this week.
  • I have been reminded this week multiple times about what a great "team" you all are. Thanks for representing us so well in all you do!!!! I pray you see the value daily in being part of our team.
  • See the pictures above of some teacher's attempts to use Google Classroom. Feel free to ask Tanya, Elizabeth, Maridith, Jamie H, Jessica G, Bethany, Stacie, Whitney or myself how our "assignments" are going. I am learning lots and they will all tell you I am the least proficient of the group (and probably the most behind). That is probably why I feel I am learning lots. :)

Professional Development

If you haven't seen the 12 min. video below, please take time to check it out... It is very sad but I encourage you to watch it and be reminded, along with me, that we don't know what really is happening in some of our students' homes. Also be reminded that sometimes the behavior we see is with good reason/cause. However, our daily mission to find a way to show love to our students with discipline issues despite their behavior in order to be able to care and educate them. Thanks for caring and loving all of our students!
