NOTES FROM KEVIN.....

Welcome to 2019! Just a couple reminders for next week:


  • Please bring a computer to our staff meeting next Tuesday. If you have a twitter account, it will be helpful to know your password. I know this because I forgot mine.
  • T&L is still in the planning stage for the professional development coming January 21st. We will know a plan soon.
  • Bingo is fun.
  • Glad Aune is back. He received 9 get well cards during his absence. All from his sub.

DLC Quick Tip

Want to build community in your classroom? Add in some collaborating and group problem-solving? Reach out to your DLC to bring a Breakout EDU kit to your classroom.


Breakouts can be skill-based, thematic, cross-curricular.

The content of the clues is up to you!


What never changes?


  • Huge emphasis on team work
  • Students' critical thinking
  • High levels of engagement


We can plan one for your classroom or your entire team.
