Notes from Niki

This week we have PLC meetings scheduled. The agenda will be pretty quick and simple. I would like to get "2 Stars and a Wish" from everyone regarding PLC's. What are 2 benefits you have seen from grade-level PLC's? What is something you would like to get out of PLC's and haven't yet? Your answers are not going to hurt my feelings or the PLC leadership committee's feelings. Our learning has been slow and deliberate this year (that's the design of the training)- developing culture and climate; not necessarily the "meat" of team meetings. We will also use our meeting time to discuss next year's schedule, supply lists, and any end of the year stuff that needs to be discussed.


Our faculty meeting on Tuesday morning will simply consist of Staff Appreciation Breakfast. I cannot say thank you enough for the dedication of all of our team members. There is never a doubt that if someone needs assistance, it will be provided. You work your tails off to provide our kids safety and security, guidance and support, and a quality education. I have never doubted that we have "The Best Staff in the World," so please enjoy the treats this week.
