Winslow's Words

January 11, 2016

Movin' on in 2016! Updates for the week!

  • Thank you to everyone for participating in our PBS Boot Camp! I think the kids are well aware of our expectations. It did take some time but I believe it is so important for us all to be on the same page. Thank you for your help and for the teachers who led the procedures!


  • We have a couple of students with head lice. Not an outbreak by any means, but be aware of kids itching and send them to the nurse! We have checked siblings and others that may be in close contact with these families.


  • Thank you to all staff who attended the Osage County Anti-Drug Spotlight last week. It was very informative and I was pleased to see several of our staff present. We have our next meeting on Thursday, January 28th. We would love to have your support!


  • We will have a Homecoming Pep Rally on Friday morning during our morning assembly time. We will have the pep band, cheerleaders and basketball players here to share about the homecoming game that evening. We will remind all students to wear red this Friday!

Grade Level Meetings

We will flip our grade level meetings this week. We will have K, 1, and 2nd grades on Tuesday and 3, 4, and 5th grades on Thursday. Kurtis Jensen from the University of Missouri, NEE Program will meet with the 3, 4, and 5th grade teachers during their time on Thursday. He is going to be talking about some student progress reports that relate with our MAP results. Since he cannot come until Thursday we will switch the days the two groups meet. Sorry for the short notice but I believe we will find this valuable for the tested grade levels.

Character Trait for January

Our January Character Trait is Respect. We will look for respectful students all month and talk about respect during morning assembly each day.
