The Bear Necessities
November 26, 2019
Our theme seems to be "Permission to do it differently"?!
Sometimes if I'm really still, I get the best gifts. This little gem came while quietly considering life's constant change.
You can read it with a work lens or a personal lens or maybe read it twice and apply both.
Loved this part "Give yourself permission to experiment. Give yourself permission to learn from what doesn’t work and try again. Give yourself permission to be gloriously imperfect".
Remember, we are supportive of you trying new things, seeing what works and being gloriously imperfect!!
Your most gloriously imperfect and thankful leaders, Kerry and Jeanie
Your leaders thank you for this!!
Parenting Beyond Consequences
When a principal friend comes back from a conference and says this was the best conference I've ever been to....you go digging. I liked this article for parents, so feel free to share with parents. A good read for you as well.
From Kim Rues:
I started a new procedure today - just trying to be more efficient :)
I will be making my rounds each morning and afternoon when I'm here to collect library books. This will help me not have to write quite as many yellow overdue slips, I hope.
You are still welcome to bring library books down, check them in or toss them in the book return. That's still incredibly helpful! This new step is just to catch the ones that don't get delivered because "life got in the way" --
