What a week.....

This week was jammed packed with events. And we are not done yet.

Veteran's day was again so very moving. For those of us who have military in our family we can connect with them. Thank you for all of you recognizing our Veteran's and helping make the flags for the kids. It is a pretty awesome view. Thank you Chelsey for the terrific choir and all of the people who helped set up after school on Monday. Below is an email we got Tuesday morning from a family who attended. The parent told me this is his third year to attend. Prior to our program he would not talk about his experiences in Vietnam. He came home on a stretcher unable to walk. Since he has come to our celebration, he has started talking more about his experiences and has joined a veteran's group.

Dear Boone Faculty and Staff,

Thank you for a beautiful Veterans Day tribute. It was very touching and I felt such pride for all veterans as well as for the young people in the choir and in the audience. They were all very respectful and the choir did an excellent job. Thank you so much.



Thank you for everyone's participation in our staff development yesterday. And thank you for the leadership from Stephanie with iStation. I appreciate everyone's feedback. Those teachers not here yesterday, please take a minute to review the Professional Responsibilities PPfT section with your team. Do a quick check in on the sections, expectations, etc. We reviewed that for about 15 minutes yesterday at our afternoon portion.

We had a small but good group of parents here for the principal coffee for Yasmin Wagner, our new school board member. Thank you to everyone who has been so flexible with library schedules this week for Veteran's day and this coffee.

Next week is super busy: AVID/College week and Tobacco Awareness week. Thanks for using the lessons Nicole found for you to do for college week. We can't wait to see what the classes create.

Tomorrow is Donuts for Dads. Such a busy morning for everyone.
