Titan Staff Newsletter

Week of December 14


I've found myself the past few weeks listening to all my favorite holiday tunes. While many people do that, it's not typical for me. I tend to hold on to my 'normal' music as long as I can before the sing-a-long car rides begin. With the end of 2015 in sight, the promise of 2016 is on the horizon. As we all know, 2015 held some challenging times for Tidwell, but we persevered. Which is exactly why you'll see me singing to my holiday songs - I've learned to enjoy every moment to the fullest.

As we enter our final week before a much anticipated break, I encourage you to be present with our students...to laugh and enjoy the dress up days...to take time to eat lunch as a Tidwell staff on Wednesday...take the time to enjoy the holiday cheer.

I'll send out more information next week regarding our January 4th staff development day. Be sure to read all the details! =)
