September 28 - October 2 at Central Elementary
Homecoming Week Fun
On another note, I very much enjoyed covering a couple of classes for Mr. Rutkowski (don't worry Tim...the kids do want you back!) on Friday afternoon. The first graders understood their football passing and catching skills well. They were more than excited to show how well they could model Cardinal Code too!
Hamming It UP
Jacquie, Ben and Kelly couldn't resist playing the part on Wacky Wednesday.
First grade students showed Mr. Harper they were ready to listen for instructions during a Friday afternoon PE class.
Ready to Pass
Arm cocked and opposite foot forward, this first grader has quarterback potential!

Student Safety Concern
A Timely Reminder
Continue Behavior Plan Efforts
Welcome Amy Highlen
Amy resides in the Goodrich/Grand Blanc area and has an extensive background as an administrative assistant in the behavioral health care industry. She is also a Certified Medical Assistant which will come in handy in an elementary building. As we develop the dynamics of our new office team there will be some changes in the roles Michelle and Tiffany hold as well. During the transition Michelle Wright will have a greater role in working directly with me as Amy receives additional training specific to the school setting. The office team will make every attempt to keep you updated on who is handling what task. This will be a gradual transition so I ask your patience as we strive to reconfigure job responsibilities in an effort to improve the service we provide to students, parents and staff. Thanks for your understanding.
I will provide an opportunity for everyone to meet Amy when she officially comes on board. Please join me in extending her a warm welcome as she becomes a member of a wonderful and awesome Central Team.
Need for Monitors
Recess monitors work about 10 hours per week and have the potential to work an additional 3-4 hours per week as monitors during student arrival and dismissal. Their starting hourly rate is a little over $8 per hour and generally work only on days when students eat lunch at school.
