Inspire Excellence in Education [May 16, 2016]
Thank you for sending encouraging words to our 3rd-5th graders!
Make every minute count for our students these last few days. We had a great start of the year, and it's even more important to give our students a strong finish. Here are some reminders for a successful last few weeks:
- Routine & Schedule- pick up students at 7:45 and stick to your regular schedule as much as possible.
- Student engagement- when students are engaged in meaningful activities, they are less likely to misbehave. Please avoid long periods of busy worksheet, videos, or non-structured activities. Active supervision is critical!
- Keep calm and professional in all situations- remember the "water bottle" and "coke bottle" demonstration? We choose our words, actions, and moods. Let's all strive to be a calm water bottle, not an explosive, bubbling coke bottle.
Ms. Vaughn did a superb job displaying Dixie students' art work. Our students are so creative and talented!
Students greeter demonstrated great hospitality to Career Day speaker.
Great job, Ms. Kornman! Her students performed reader's theater in K/1 classrooms.
What does it take to be a dog groomer? Students had great questions for our guest speaker.
Students learned interesting facts from the chef.
Thank you, Ms. Crisp! Great job coordinating TWO successful Career Days!
Dr. Crawford shared his career journey with our students.
