  • The school board meeting is at 6:00 on Monday night at the Admin Center. Becca and I will be sharing updates about 5th Quarter and Rock-It Academy. Please join if you are able.
  • Happy birthday to Heather Bagby on Thursday!
  • I will be at the AEA all day on Monday for "Leading School Change w/Todd Whitaker". Danielle and the office will be in charge. They will contact me by phone or text about any situations. Some discipline might have to wait until I return as Danielle is not the acting principal in my absence. I am sure it will be a quiet day. Most Mondays are :)
  • I will be at the AEA all day on Tuesday for Day 3 of the 4 I have to attend for Evaluator III training for my license. Danielle will be at the Counselor Academy that day at the AEA, too. Please see Jenni or Carrie if you have any issues and/or the office.
  • The ARMS coins came in and I put a bag in all classified staff mailboxes. PLEASE make sure you are focusing on acknowledging positive behavior. I am surprised we haven't filled our school bucket in the library yet for our first all school reward. Maybe this will be the week?
  • I included a quick 3 minute read on a link at the bottom about empowering studetns to manage their own behavior. What if every adult in our building challenged him/herself to say 5 positive things to kids before saying 1 negative thing? Wow!
