From the Principal......
I had the privilege of visiting two elementary sites this week. Both of them are Apple Distinguished Schools, a designation that reflects their hard work and commitment to creativity, collaboration, innovation through the power of technology. It was an incredible learning experience and I'm excited to share and pass along what I've learned. I have fallen in love with the Showbie App and the Seesaw App!
This weeks positive and encouraging morning message will focus on having an attitude of gratitude! Perfect timing for the week before Thanksgiving.
Your bonus denim day this week is Wednesday! Enjoy!
I will be spending most of Monday in classrooms with informal observations and walkthroughs. We are expecting visitors from IT and Digital Promise during the morning of Tuesday, November 17th. We will be visiting classrooms as well. I will be out of the office on Thursday, November 20th ~ My husband is retiring from 23 years of military service in the Air Force.

- We have signed the AT&T Contract and have a setup call scheduled for next week. As soon as we know more details we'll let you know so that we can make plans to start sending iPads home.
- We've been asked by the Apple Creative team to participate in being one of two schools to help contribute content and story interviews to the Apple's new ConnectED webpage. Your work and dedication has captured the respect and attention from Apple and they know there's a story to tell about our staff, students, and community. We'll be reaching out to a few of staff members, students, parents and community members to help in this project. If you'd like to nominate or self-nominate to be included in this project , please let me know. It is not a time consuming endeavor, and will be completed in a few short weeks.
- Digital Citizenship Application for Common Sense Media Certified School is almost complete! Those of you who have completed and submitted your log will also qualify for the Certified Educator designation!
