Welcome

Jason Harris will join our team on Monday. He will be filling the position that opened when Mrs. Moore went to Italy. Jason is a former instructional coach at SPP and has taught LLI classes in his former role. Please say hello and welcome him when you see him on Monday.

Thoughts and Prayers

Please keep Ms. Lagasse in your thoughts and prayers. Some of you are aware that her fiancee was injured in Afghanistan earlier this week. She has obviously been through some trying times but is optimistic as the plan is for him to be flown into Washington D.C. over the weekend for continued medical attention. Please keep Michelle and her family in your thoughts and prayers.

PBIS

I shared with the SIT team that I have been very impressed with how everyone has been on board with PBIS. The "caught doing something good" incentive this week has been very successful. Thanks for your continuing efforts in supporting this.

5th Grade Field Trip

5th graders went to Pinecrest yesterday to participate in a math fair. The fair was presented by students that are enrolled in a class that is designed to help students that have been struggling in math. Our students were well behaved and really into the activities being presented. It was a win/win for our school and theirs.

Site Visit

Central office staff will visit our school on Tuesday at 8:30 for a school improvement site visit. Just do "your thing". As always they will be looking for good engaging instructional practices; things that you practice every day.

Parent Information Session
