Also, the calendar will go to the board Tuesday for approval and I will forward it to you; there are also make up dates that are being approved and I will forward those upon approval; it is looking like December 18 and last day of school will be full days, and make parent conference full days as well. Keep you posted.

Morning Meetings

Morning meetings can be 5 to 10 minutes long. Typically can occur every morning, but at least Mondays and Fridays, to introduce and conclude. It is an opportunity to discuss character building and provide examples of behaviors you are looking for. Thankfulness and gratitude is a great topic this time of year. Do not underestimate the power of your morning meeting. Just a few videos for ideas or create your own morning meeting.
