A School to Emulate

Memorial Elementary Bobcat Bulletin 9-28-15 through 10-2-15

Balance! Balance! Balance!

If you have been in the education profession for a while, you have heard or perhaps have said, "There is not enough time. It's too much. I can't get anything done. There are too many meetings. Staff morale is low. Everyone is stressed." The start of the school year always feels this way. The good news is it always gets better. This is a part of the cycle of an academic year. Now that things are settling down you will begin to set routines. As you do so remember to find balance. Set realistic goals and take care of yourselves. We can only offer our students the best when we are at our best.

Thanks everyone and have a great weekend!

A 3rd grade student saw a teacher who worked with his sibling who is now in middle school (J.P.). The teacher looked at the student to say hello and the student said, "I used to be "J.P.s" brother."

Happy Birthday
