Get Whitt it!
If you call one wolf, you invite the pack.
That is happening THIS weekend and with it comes a few requests.
First, we have to be ALL GONE out of the parking lots by 3pm Friday afternoon. They'll be moving in all the new units and want us out of their way. We also cannot get into the building all weekend.
So yes, you read that right. I need you outta here early on Friday and don't want you working ALL weekend! :)
They promise that it will be an easy process and have a helicopter coming in (gulp!) that will whip the new ones in and the old ones out within 90 seconds each. I've got a statement from the district I'll be email blasting and calling about tomorrow.
Its that EOY time!
Kinder Round-up! Check!
THANK YOU to our para's, office staff, and KINDER TEAM who were ON the entire night. Smiles, shoulder pats, and reassuring head nods were seen at every turn. :)
Also, a huge thanks to Mrs. Wiest and her photo booth skills! There isn't a task I set in front of her that she doesn't knock out of the park! Give her a high five for acing her principals certification test next time you see her!
April Teacher of the Month
Goes above and beyond for her students. Thinks of ways to challenge them and make learning fun!
Always enthusiastic and engaged with her kids. No doubt she cares!!
She is a positively fun an awesome teacher! She challenges her past and present students with AR.
These are just a few of the WONDERFUL things her peers said about her. Congratulations Kippy Knapp, for being our April teacher of the month!! We'll celebrate you with a fun lunch at the Sachse Chamber on Tuesday!
Researchers have found that students who are high in hope have greater academic success, stronger friendships, and demonstrate more creativity and better problem-solving. They also have lower levels of depression and anxiety and are less likely to drop out from school.
But does this mean hope causes these benefits—or couldn’t success in school and in making friends just give students more hope? In fact, studies suggest that having hope may actually predict a student’s future academic achievement more than having feelings of self-worth or a positive attitude towards life actually do.
So how do teachers know which students are high in hope? Easy: They are the students who don’t take failure personally. Instead, they use it to improve their performance next time. They’re also more optimistic, and, in the face of obstacles, they tell themselves, “I can do this. I won’t give up.”
How do we cultivate hope? It's something our district is looking towards. There are big posters that we are hanging in the PLC room that will speak to the "Day of Hope" speaker Ms. Roberts and I saw earlier this year. Hope is thinking that tomorrow can be better than today...and we want to help our Wolves SEE that!
