The Weekly Howl

Week of January 8th, 2018

It's Like Christmas All Over!

If you couldn't tell I LOVE my job and the people I work with! I can't wait to see everyone tomorrow! Many of our kids never wanted to stay home for 2 weeks. They can't wait to see you. Build up those relationships as soon as you see them. Let's all (me included) make a conscious effort this semester to make sure we are in the hallway greeting students as they come in!

What Do You Want Out Of This New Year?

Things To Know

  • The computer labs are both taken down. The computers will remain piled for a little bit until we can get them taken away.
  • I will be passing out headphones to your classrooms. We bought headphones for the labs at the end of last year. Each classroom will get 5 new pairs. I'll let you know when the old ones can be taken on a first come first serve basis.
  • Wednesday morning will be our first staff meeting of the new year! We will discuss a maker space, and peer observations, and guys night out!
  • All Write Summer Insititute (Now called the Lead Learners) is way more than just writing. June will be when the institute is offered and I would like everyone to go. I'll know the exact dates soon. June 25th ish and it's at Warsaw. We are planning some really great PD. It's a must go for exceptional PD.

Guys Night Out!








Our first Guys Night Out! The Outdoor Sports Show is at the Coliseum that night. Lumber Jack Shows, Archery, Fishing Demos, Indoor Kayaking. I'll work out the details but let's plan on this that night. If you would like to volunteer to help with this night let me know. I will send an email once Mr. Knipper and I decide how many students we can take.
