Staff Update - August 25, 2019

Team Meadow,

Wow! What a gorgeous weekend! I hope you were able to enjoy it!

I intend to keep this update fairly brief due to the fact that we will dialogue through many action items during Monday's staff meeting.

However, I must begin by telling you that on Thursday evening, my hopes were to make it to various rooms/grade levels during curriculum night. Instead of traveling to your rooms, the evening was filled with non-stop interaction with families as they entered and exited the building. Lauren and I were planted in the atrium for about 2.5 hours which afforded us the time to connect with families, navigate some of the beginning year hiccups and questions, and proudly listen to the accolades flow. Thank you for communicating well and comforting the families of the 560 students that fill our spaces. It was incredibly encouraging to hear their compliments about you, the work you do, and the experiences their children are being afforded. Mark the evening as a huge success! All the cred goes to you!

As always, the week ahead holds great promise and opportunity as we do our part to help shape the experiences for the learners in our care. Thank you for doing it with your "why" always leading your steps.

Let's have a great week!
