Classroom visits

The part of being a principal that I enjoy the most is visiting classrooms. I try my best to get into each classroom at least once a week. Gone are the days of the principal who just sits in the office. As I am out in classrooms and helping out with lunch and recess, I have an opportunity to build relationships with students and adults. I can sense when students are having a great day or a not so great day. I can see students and teachers in action. And I have to be honest. I'm in classrooms so often that sometimes the students and staff don't even notice me. They call me "ninja" or "ghost". And I'm completely fine with that. It allows me to see real learning and real interactions with students and staff.

Thousands of schools and businesses across the country will be wearing blue in solidarity to stop bullying and cyber bullying. Blue Shirt Day helps bring awareness to bullying prevention efforts and reminds us to be kind, tolerant, and to stand up for others. If you would like to learn more, here is a link to their website.

Parents United

For those of you not aware, Parents United is a consortium of school districts (of which Merton is one) that have joined together to offer an educational community service by putting on FREE presentations on a variety of topics for parents and for professionals that work with children. Most are held at the Country Springs Hotel and Conference Center in Pewaukee. Many are in the daytime, a few are in the evening. The topics can be found in the Mustang Memo and as a link on our website.
