54 DAYS LEFT IN 2019 - WHAT WILL YOU DO?

Saw something yesterday that said there are 55 days left in 2019. Ending the year is as important as the beginning of the year. What can you do for the next 54 days to make yourself a better you? Exercise, read a good book, play more with your family, put your cell phone away when you get home, etc? I challenge you to find one thing, share it with a friend, and hold each other accountable so that we finish 2019 strong!

THINGS TO KNOW...

* 2 weeks and counting to a well deserved Thanksgiving break!!! We can do this!

* Monday is staff development day. An agenda will be included below.

* Dr. Phillips will be here on Tuesday to walk classrooms. She should be here around 8:15 am. If we come in, she is looking at the great instruction that is taking place here, so please continue teaching.

* NINE WEEK AWARDS - We will do perfect attendance Tuesday which will be cart service with coupons, Wednesday we will do outstanding students party in the cafeteria at 2:30, and Friday we will do all A/B's popsicle party in the afternoon starting as soon as lunches are cleaned up from. We will announce for you to send your students to the cafeteria for all of these events when we are ready!

TEAM HUDDLES

I'm loving this time! Those that I'm getting to see are sharing some great celebrations, some insight into some struggles, and some good suggestions. Please keep them coming my way, it's the way we all grow and get better! I'll be in your area of the building at 7:25. I'll stay there until 7:35 in hopes of getting to visit with you! We will have 3 standing questions...

1. Something good that has happened this school year

2. Something you struggle with this week or this year
