Wilder @ a Glance
2 Simple Requests!!!
I hope you guys had a great Valentines Day and a wonderful 3 day weekend. We got out of town and hung with Jen's family this weekend. It was a nice time to reconnect.
As you probably have noticed, things are cranking up as we get into the fast pace of Spring. Students and families are feeling the stress. To assist our students, I am going to ask 2 very simple things from you guys. Many of you are already doing this and if you are not, here's your chance...I am asking that each of you greet your students at your classroom door when students arrive at 8:35 - greeting them and telling them how happy you are to see them. Secondly, I am asking that you please do the same at the end of the day - letting them know how much you enjoyed them and wishing them a great evening. This physically looks like standing by the door during each of these occasions.
Yes, I am well aware that many of you are already doing this and if you are not, let's be very intentional about greeting and saying goodbye to our students. Many of them are dealing with some very intense stresses in their lives, and a simple high five and "It was great to have you in class today" may mean more than you think. Thanks and let me know if you have any questions.
Now for another great week.
