12 Days Before Winter Break

As of today there are 12 days left before winter break starts :-). Each day we have planned a little treat in the mailroom so make sure you stop by when you check your mailboxes. We hope this makes your days a little brighter and keeps you going these last two busy weeks of school. We know the amount of hard work and dedication each of you has put in to make the most of instruction these last two week of Q2 for each of your students.

Have a great week!

We have sent this link to parents already, but county shared it would be great for teachers to view also to ensure very one knows how to interpret the report for questions as needed.

I am so excited about our last round of Professional Learning. Thank you everyone for being such great partners in learning with me. I can't wait for next time!!


Counselor's Corner

Guidance/Connections:

Second and Third grades are coming for Personal Safety and Internet Safety with Mrs. Flynn and Ms. Ford (room #1213) through January 11th! I am so excited that Linda is with me and able to be my second adult in the room for these lessons while she is here. That means that teachers will not need to stay in my room as we have done in the past years. I am so happy to announce that our wonderful Admin Team is going to cover the remainder of the Personal Safety Lessons in January so you will not need to stay! I know how busy everyone is and how precious planning time is. Next year we will need to go back to having the teachers stay. Everyone should have sent the letter about these lessons home a few weeks ago when I emailed it out to you. Also, Please be sure to let me know if you have students who are not participating so, we together, can be sure they are not present in my room for the lessons.


Safari Leader:

There will be 4th & 5th Grade Safari Leader Meetings this week!

Please let me know if you have any questions or need anything!

Have a wonderful week,

Onalee and Linda
