Planting the Seeds of 16-17

So after Spring Break, I always like to start thinking of next school year and what I would like to do differently or change. What did not work so well or what could I do to make something better?

I have been doing some reading....from Ron Clark, of course. One quote struck me from his book, Move Your Bus, that alludes to self reflection. "From the youngest student to the most senior administrator, every individual is seeking to accomplish more, to do better, and to succeed at the task before him."

What a quote when thinking about planting seeds for next school can I accomplish more or do better.....I encourage you to think of one thing. Maybe this will be your SLO for next year or just a personal goal. When considering your goal for next year, find something that will "make a big difference in our school, to inspire others" or help them become more academically successful or reach a new plateau in their art or music.

Start have time! Find something and set your mind to get better! This will move us as whole. When people strive to get better, the organization benefits.

Parent Night

Absolutely amazing....I can not thank you enough for the amazing job that you did during the Hendrix Parent Night. I received messages, emails, and phone calls telling me what a wonderful job that you did representing BSES. Thank you for being you and being so amazing to our new families.


I have sent out a list of those approved to attend SLA. Feel free to go ahead and schedule conferences after Spring Break. Remember you will need to give the parent the information letter. You will turn in the conference sheet, signed by the parent, and the learning path to me. If they deny, you will just need to turn in the conference sheet.


I am waiting to get approval on the retention list. Please hold off on scheduling these conferences until I get approval.

Due this Week

Go ahead and get those conferences scheduled for SRA/SLA......if a parent denies participation, please send me an email. I will email the next person on the list.

Tasty Treat-You may want to remind students that we will have Tasty Treats on Tuesday, April 19th.


Lunch Menus will now be digital. Parents are able to download an app that will allow them to check daily menus. The app is titled NurtiSlice. Parents will search for Spartanburg District Two. They will have the option to choose elementary, middle, or high school. Once you have selected the school, parents will be able to view the breakfast or lunch menu.
