Teacher Appreciation Week

This week is the official Teacher Appreciation Week!


I decided to celebrate your greatness a week early. I want to give a great big shout out and thank you to Tia, Jill and the Food Service Class for catering this event. This was a great example of project based learning where students planned and executed a project.


Each one of you are amazing educators and I am thankful to have such a devoted team working in the best interest of students.


I believe we have one of the strongest and best staff in the district! I have enjoyed watching us grow and change to adapt to building and district challenges, all in order to do what is best for students.


Thank you for all you do, for all the time and dedication you put in on behalf of students. You are appreciated !!!!

Absences

Friday there were quite a number of absences. Please remember our students do best with consistency and our faces here and present.


If there are requests for days off in this last month of school, I will be looking at the number of other staff already planning on being out and the number of days you have already been out this year to make my decision.


Let's finish out the year MPS Strong!

Mental Health Team Tip of the Week:


The Healthy Mind Platter contains seven essential mental activities necessary for optimum mental health in daily life, according to Dr. Dan Siegel and Dr. David Rock.


We've covered sleep, physical time, focus, connecting time and play time. Today we're highlighting Down Time.


When we are non-focused, without any specific goal, and let our mind wander or simply relax, we help the brain recharge.


So go ahead and let yourself 'zone out' (when it's safe to do so!) and feel good about recharging your brain!


Stay tuned for more info on the final essential activity next week - or check it out for yourself:
