Words of Inspiration

"The principle goal of education is to create men who are capable of doing new things, not simply of repeating what other generations have done – men who are creative, inventive and discoverers."

-Jean Piaget

A Special Applause to...

We are so lucky to have big time authors visit our school. This work would not happen without the efforts of Becky Sloan. The author visit is only a piece of the experience she creates. This year we had over 130 students sign up for the principal's pick and hundreds of students participate in the contest. Thank you, Becky!

PD on the Fly...

Do you want to increase productivity in your classroom? Consider giving student breaks. In this article they discuss the benefits of taking a step away from classwork in order to move forward. The article even has a link to some Brain Breaks. Looking to see some of this in action? Take a trip to Mr. Kelly's room and you may see them playing Mom Ball (also called Silent Ball). Enjoy!
