A Publication for HES Staff
Week of January 18th
Thank you for making Friday's Annual Day of Service a positive experience for our students and staff. I am proud of the fact that we set aside time to reflect on the legacy of Dr. King. On Friday, I had the pleasure of joining 5th grade who went off-site to donate snack bags assembled for children at HomeFront. Our keynote speaker, Richard Scheetz, shared how he and his staff had volunteered with Habitat for Humanity. I would be interested in pursuing a similar opportunity if there is interest among staff.
A few other thank you's:
+ CHEER for hosting Thursday's staff holiday party
+ Sean for coordinating Saturday's concert in Philly to see the Legwarmers
+ All staff who dressed up on Wednesday. Our first 80's Day celebration was too much fun! Looking forward to another event in March. Stay tuned...
Finally, I will be visiting Johnson Park School in Princeton tomorrow morning. Looking forward to spending this time with the principal, Dr. Robert Ginsberg, touring his building and discussing education. Dr. Ginsburg will do the same at our school sometime this year. It's a wonderful opportunity to collaborate with a principal of another well respected elementary school.
Have a wonderful week!
Wednesday's Faculty Meeting
Report card training will take place at Wednesday's faculty meeting. It will be important for all staff to be present, so please make sure you have childcare, don't make appointments, etc.
The following is our schedule:
3:45 - 4:25 (Grade 4-5 classroom teachers)
4:30 - 5:15: (K-3 and special area teachers)
Jane Ellen will lead this training. Teachers should be meeting with PLCs when not scheduled to be with Jane Ellen.
Lunch Duty Help
Reminder: Enrichment Clusters
The form to submit your class idea is now live. Click here to sign up! I've spoken with some teachers who are a bit stressed about coming up with an idea. Any and all classes offered by staff will be embraced by our kids! My advice is to focus on something you are passionate about and enjoying doing. Once again, the expectation is that every staff member lead a class or support someone who is leading.
Let a member of Principal's Cabinet or me know if you have any questions. Looking forward to offering this experience to our students and staff!
