Hurricane Notes

January 4--8, 2016

Dear Friends,

Welcome back to a new year and good wishes to all of my Rainwater family for 2016. I hope you all had a wonderful winter break and will have health, wealth, happiness, and success this year.

As the 2nd semester gets underway you'll find some new faces on campus. One face you will no longer see is Holly Barber. I am sad to say Holly will no longer be with us but.... we are fortunate to have a new AP come on board part time. Megan Forbes will be our new Assistant Principal. Megan will be with us on Wednesdays and Fridays. She will split her time between Rainwater, Riverchase and Country Place. So when you see her on campus stop by and say hello. The second new face that you'll see on campus is Susannah Weidenhamer. She is joining our 3rd grade team and will teach the L.A. block. Susannah will start on Monday afternoon, so stop by and say hello when you get a chance.

In wrapping up my welcome back, I want us all to reflect on the job at hand. Teaching is hard work. Furthermore, seeing that we don't get a second chance to make a difference in the lives of our students; let’s make sure the first chance counts for our students. Have a fantastic year.



*Remember it's Jeans for January for all staff members.

*Reports go home on Wednesday of this week.

**VIP night for Katie is Thurs., Jan. 14th. This is an all staff member function. Please let me know if you will not be able to attend.
