Courage is the strength to act even when afraid or uncertain.
This Week's Quote: "Courage is doing what you are afraid to do. There can be no courage unless you are scared." ~ Eddie Rickenbacker

Call Back Focus: Waterfall, Waterfall.....Shhhh, Shhhh.
Below you will find a few pics of the workers' progress the past few weeks. Things are coming along nicely and on schedule. We anticipate our 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade pod bathrooms will be ready to use the week of April 3rd. Fingers crossed! Phase 2 will begin shortly after and will include bathrooms in the kindergarten pod, gym, kitchen, and staff bathrooms near our teachers' lounge.
We are so proud of our students and staff! Their flexibility and positive attitude during construction has been impressive. Our 2nd, 3rd, and 4th graders are being rerouted to new areas for bathroom use and our other grade levels are kindly sharing their space. Next week we will continue this trend by focusing on our Hallway Expectations as we move throughout the building.

February Grade Level PAWS Winners!
This past week we had our grade level PAWS drawing. These amazing Wolves won a prize for their entire class (Rainbow Reading & Lucky Charm Bars) and received a "Wolf Bite" for displaying PAWS Expectations throughout the school. Each student's name was pulled from a grade level PAWS bucket. We are so proud of our students and their hard work, academically and behaviorally.
This week our wolves will be reviewing and practicing Hallway Expectations. You can see our PAWS Expectations for our hallways below.
