Make an attendance chart in you classroom showing absences. Chart the absences. Challenge your students to be the healthiest students in their grade level. Compete among your grade level. Find out what your class wants to earn and make that the reward!
We will be celebrating Red Ribbon Week next week. Ribbons and stickers will be placed in your box on Friday. An outline for the week's activities will go out later in the week. If you have an idea you want to pass along please send it my way! I always appreciate everyone's ideas!
Have a great week!

WOW! Powerful words....
This past weekend, we learned so very much at the PLC conference!!! Over the next couple of weeks we will be sharing lots of great information.
The above quote spoke volumes to us both as we work so hard every single day to change the world….on student at a time…. But the great reminder here is that when we push ourselves and change ourselves, we not only get better, but the students we serve reap the benefits.
We will be out…
