Week of January 25, 2016 - B Week

That was a lot of snow!

I thought we were going to make it through the entire winter without a big snowstorm. these kinds of delays can throw our best plans out of whack a bit. We should take the remaining days this week to think about pacing and our next steps.

The faculty meeting tomorrow will begin after school, and will give you some time to plan, as well as some time to map out the mid year review process.

I'm looking forward to getting back to school and starting to get things rolling again.

Thanks for all you do!
