Winter Break Is Almost Here!
All dates for the remainder of the school year are now added to the calendar!
Don't forget that Friday is "Ugly Christmas Sweater Day"! I would love to get some video footage of everyone on the playground in their sweaters to create a video for our assembly next week. Participation is optional. I am hoping to create a spin on this video created by a friend of mine...I am thinking some running (slow motion of course), swinging, going down the slide-whatever you can come up with! We can also do some video inside the building. I can record your grade level on the playground during plan time...etc. Then merge the videos to create a video :). Let me know what you think! It's good for your students to see you having fun, and being silly-they will LOVE it! https://vimeo.com/33304565
J Anderson mentioned some things in his weekly newsletter that I thought were worth mentioning below....

SEQUIOTA SPOTLIGHT: Brenda Popp
Brenda's song is "Hit the Quan"...you might be wondering what's the Quan? Here is the definition: A dance consisting of a series of actions mimicking the rappers's words and sounds. The dance can be interpreted multiple ways and you can make your own moves, but it should include some form of stepping, squatting and arm movement.
Brenda: We are all mimicking your "Quan" because you've got it goin' on! (P.S. start practicing-we will be performing this at an assembly soon...:)
Some NEVER Need to Repair-But Always Do
A story that Todd Whitaker told was about a great teacher that started her class by apologizing if she was impatient with the class the day before. She went further to tell the class that she wasn't feeling well and was running late, and that she wanted to let them know how sorry she was if she was a little short with any of them. Her class was sitting there like deer in headlights. They had no idea what she was talking about-they thought the previous day was a great day! GREAT TEACHERS are sensitive to their students, and has established trust & credibility. As we have discussed before-THE BEST teachers have high expectations for others, but much higher expectations for themselves.
