Week of May 6th - 10th, 2019

Go Go Go up until the end.......

We have 15 days left of school! Please make sure to read e-mail daily (at least twice) and refer to your calendars, schedules for review. We have so many things happening in these last weeks and it is important to be prepared.

Please start talking to your students about our trimester 3 GALLERY WALK. Reach out to parents to notify them as well.Our Galley Walk will be on Tuesday, May 21st. I am inviting the newspaper to come visit on that day to capture our student's talents. Again, we will invite parents, family and community members in to visit the Gallery Walk from 3-4 p.m. that day.

This week alone, we have our "Muffins with Mom" and Spring Music Program in addition to our daily activities and two grade level field trips.

Let's make these last weeks memorable for our students. They deserve it!

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!

It is staff appreciation week! I would like each and every one of you to know that I appreciate you every single day of the year, yes, summer included! It takes a village, a family, to successfully educate children and provide them with opportunities to learn and to feel safe, secure and loved on a daily basis! I believe that we, North Side Wildcats, do just that for our students! I know that we all take our work home with us in many ways, preparing for the next day or week and more importantly, emotionally! We love our students so much that we go home thinking about them and if they have food, love, shelter and support that night.......... this investment in our kids makes us stand apart from others! I know you are exhausted every day and you work above and beyond what is needed to provide our students, our kids, with the best of the best!!!!!

I don't say it enough, but thank you and yes I do see and witness all that you give to your profession, your students and our school and district! You are very much appreciated and I am VERY PROUD to call you my team, our Wildcat Family!!!! Our village is the best one out there!!!!!!
