Staying Connected - September 2020
A year like no other
This year will be...different. That's not necessarily Minnesota-speak for bad, but certainly 2020-2021 will be unique, unprecedented, changing, and challenging. We have already been SO impressed with the glowing staff response, constantly supporting one another in line with our Values in Action.
We will work to share positive examples from our community, like our Leaders of the Pack (click to nominate PA staff) and the stellar 3rd grade Morning Meeting slide below (complete with a countdown timer, daily checklist, morning message, ways to connect, and sharers).
We hope that you continue to reach out with any feedback, highlights, questions, or concerns. The PA community is strong, and we will support each other through our ups and downs.
Wishing you health and happiness in time that those are in short supply,
Lisa, Molly, Jessica, and Jake
