7th Grade EL Unit - Rules to Live By!

What a great example of the awesome POWER of teachers planning together to Ignite a Passion for Learning - NOW! Teachers posted their own "Rules to Live By" to model for our students. It's awesome to walk down the 7th grade hallways - noticing these posters that are inspiring our students as part of this EL Unit! As we conclude this unit on Thursday, February 4th - notice how our mall area becomes a great way to showcase our students' learning with their own "Rules to Live By". Exciting!!


National School Counselor's Week - - - "We appreciate our AWESOME counselors!"

Building off last week's Great Kindness Challenge! and our start of using Live School to record our Habits of Work and Learning (HOWLs), we now have a wonderful opportunity to show appreciation for our awesome counselors! We appreciate Megan and Kim - and ALL they do for our school! They definitely help us "thrive" as we work to meet the needs of the "whole child!"

Final Week of Basketball!
