Principally Speaking

It's Spring Break! My hope is that you will all find ways to experience a close family spring break at home so all can stay healthy. Drag out all those family board games and dust off the bicycles and go for a ride. It will be very important to get some daily exercise to keep our mental states positive.

SPRING BREAK MESSAGE FROM MR. HENRY & MAX

Mr. Henry & Max

NO AMI LESSONS THIS WEEK (UNLESS YOU DIDN'T COMPLETE LAST WEEKS)

Students will have 5 more lessons in their packets to go through Friday, April 3, 2020

Since schools will be shut down until Friday, April 17, 2020 due to the Conoravirus, stay tuned for AMI schooling information for the weeks of April 5-April 17, 2020.

AMI LESSON PLANS

Alternative Methods of Instruction (AMI) days are days in which students participate in at-home lessons instead of attending a school building. AMI days are used when exceptional or emergency circumstances occur, allowing the school district to not extend the school year.

At-home assignments are due the day students return to school and are used to determine a student’s attendance. Students who do not completed their assignments will be marked absent for that day.

Nominate Your Teacher Today

KNWA’s Golden Apple Award Contest, sponsored by Post Consumer Brands, is back for its 3rd year. This contest highlights the efforts of our NWA teachers/ coaches/ classroom instructors that go above and beyond the normal duties of teaching within a classroom and how they “Make Better Happen” for their students. If you know someone like this, we would love to hear about them.

Once a month, one teacher/coach from NWA school districts (traditional and non-traditional settings) will be chosen for an amazing prize package (Golden Apple Award, $150 Walmart Gift Card, and $50 restaurant gift card). The winner will also have a surprise classroom visit from our very own Tavares Jones, a Post Consumer Brand rep, and a camera crew. On the last Wednesday of the month the story will air. (Visits will be organized and confirmed through winning schools principal’s office).

Below you will find the link to our Golden Apple online submission page. Please share this with all of your teachers in your district. This contest will run through the entire school year and our first teacher will be chosen in September. Thank you for your assistance with this wonderful opportunity.
