A Cordelia Hills Staff Update, 10/9/2018

Glows and Grows

Glows: Thank you to all staff for a great visit from Superintendent Corey and Ed Services leadership on Friday morning. I'm not sure if you had a chance to read the Superintendent's Friday letter but the reference to our school is a reflection on the positive work you are doing each and every day. Thank you!

Grows: As a staff:

1. What strategies do you use when a child is displaying signs of unease or behavior in class? How do you calm yourself when a student, students, or class isn't following your directions?

Fun Run

Our third annual Cordelia Hills Fun Run is coming up next month. Two important dates:

Pep Rally: October 9th (8:35 Tk-3, 9:35 4-5, 2:00 p.m. for PM TK-K)

Coyote Fun Run: October 17th (10:00 a.m. for grades TK-k, 11:00 a.m. for grades 4/5, and 12:30 p.m. for grades 1st-3rd)

Student will run on the field during the fun on the same basic course as last time. This year will not include color but will include other fun activities. More information is forthcoming from PTA and the school!


Again, thank you for having those signs up. A few important notes:

1. Major props to Room D-10 and Mrs. Leamy for over 99% attendance for the month of September. They have voted to drop water balloons. I will work out a date for the class and invite you all to watch. Keep up the great work!

2. I've talked to some of you about your worries and concerns about the focus on District-wide staff attendance. Just know that my approach is to always support you if you are missing days. My focus is on the data and I would rather have a conversation with you if you are struggling with illness or some other issue is preventing you from coming to work. Just remember to communicate =)
