  • Curriculum overviews for the 3rd six weeks are due by Friday, November 13. (Today)
  • Classroom teachers - If you are using a specific behavior management plan with individual students, please send the specialists a note detailing the plan. Students who need this extra help also need consistency and, if we are using the same plan across all courses, it will be much more effective.
  • Please make sure that you are always keeping your doors locked.

Some of the Great Things I Saw This Week:

  • I saw many more incredible teachers doing what they do best! Whenever anyone comments on how smoothly the school year is going, I always say that the success of this school is because of the wonderful teachers who work here, and all of my observations affirm that statement!
  • This week the junior kinders made cornucopias and were so proud of them. The best part of seeing them walking to their cars that day was getting to hear them try to say "cornucopia" when I asked about their artwork.
