Weekly Staff and Daycare Updates from Mrs. Goodenow

Short week!

Thank you for your efforts to make Thanksgiving special for your students. The snow day might have affected the final event, but it's the thought that matters! Thinking and executing experiences for our students does not go unnoticed and I am so thankful to be a cheerleader as your creative minds think up these things!

Here we go!

Our Great Start/End character education implementation begins on MONDAY!


The Leadership Team has been instrumental in our Leader In Me learning for students and staff. Think back to the end of October and the start of November. What words were we using with students to encourage and redirect behavior? Have those words changed? Do you hear students speaking the language? Now, at the start of December, I am hearing the beginnings of what will become a solid language that we speak with students.

If you are not a classroom teacher, please read the plan for the month of December that is linked in the Sunday email to all staff. We are tying the characteristics of being proactive with the 12 days of Christmas. If you are not musically inclined, have no fear! I will be singing over the intercom daily so that we learn this language well!
