Blaze Bulletin

Edition 33- Week of May 9th

Greetings...

Notes from a substitute:


"Thanks for an easy/organized lesson plan that was laid out in detail!"


"1st period was wonderful and just when I thought things couldn't get any better, here comes 2nd period! They were unreal - a great class! 3rd period went very well also. Good students - they all were engaged in their assignment and were all working. 4th period was warm and polite. 5th and 7th - both went very well. They were a little more talkative, but they worked. Everything went well all day."


Just thought I'd share what a substitute said about our kids. And, thank you, teachers. Your plans and your expectations are what makes kids act this way with subs!


Go Blaze!

UPDATE GRADES WEEKLY IN INOW!

A must read...

Below is a link to an article (Shark Smitten) that is a great testament to the influence of teachers and schools. We never know or fully realize the impact of our words or encouragement - especially when we encourage students to "go beyond" what they think they can do. Do any of you remember this student??
