Merry Christmas!

I hope that you have enjoyed all the special treats and surprises during the month of December! We tried to create small tokens of our great appreciation for all that you do.

Thank you all for an amazing semester! I am blessed by each of you and your love for kids and passion for teaching and learning.

Have a wonderful break with family and friends! Relax and do something to treat yourself! I am going to remind myself of this saying when my kids start fighting with each other, and I am trying to squeeze in all my Christmas shopping the next few days!

I am looking forward to a wonderful 2016!

With Much Love and Thanks,

Thoughtshare Survey Reminder

Please remember to complete the thoughtshare survey by January 4, 2016. As always, we appreciate your input (positive and negative) to help improve teaching and learning for students.

Also, please know that I have an open door at all times and welcome feedback and open communication regarding all students and school circumstances. I am happy to help solve problems and make this the best place to be!

THANK YOU to Mrs. Pontius' Class for taking the initiative to clean and hang up all the jackets from outside!

Thank you to our generous PTA and many staff members, many of our struggling families will receive gifts, food, and other essential items needed to make it through the winter break. There are several teachers who purchased food and provided a microwave for a family in need. Your thoughtfulness and giving spirit is inspirational.

Schedule and Duty Updates for 2016

Team Leaders have received an email from Ralph with information regarding changing and updating before and after school duties. Please talk to your team leaders to see if this pertains to your grade level.

Also, 2nd and 3rd grade are switching Specials times at semester due to desired schedules and instructional time. They have worked with Specials teachers and staff to organize these changes.

You don't have to look at this until next year!
