Success for all, whatever it takes!
Issue 21: January 11-15, 2016
The weather outside was frightful, which made for an excellent weekend to sit on the couch and watch football. However, we did brave a trip to the grocery store and make time for playing with cars and chalk on the driveway, because you can only keep an almost-three year old cooped up inside for so long.
As adults, we experience cabin fever when we are stuck inside too long. Just imagine how our students feel when they can't get outside to burn off that excess energy. We need to make time for extra brain breaks, time to get up and move, and just a chance to be a kid! Taking time for these activities will benefit everyone...I promise.
As you go through this week, do so knowing that you have a huge team of educators on your team. Take time to collaborate and talk with them on a daily basis, because this is not a job to be done alone...remember, it takes a village!
There are no building wide assessments administered this week.
