Counselor's Comments

We will get our results from our PBIS Walkthrough the first week in March. Thanks for preparing our kids for this.

Also, snow days will take the students and us out of our routines pretty quickly.

Don't hesitate to review these as needed both in the common areas and the classroom.

I Love To Read Month @ MCE...Thanks for using your Bingo Board activities to emphasize literacy.

Principal's Points

Start.


Stop.


Start.


Stop.


Winter weather is not our friend. Kids (and grownups!) need routine. We see you train, reteach, and train some more as we stop and start as snow interrupts our calendar.


Mr. Zepf referenced this in his section of Chat...and it is evident that many of you are really good at providing structure and redirection. We'll be feeling more of the time crunch as spring approaches.


Keep maximizing every part of the day to give kids what they need!

Facilities' Fast Facts

Our school construction project was approved tonight at the board meeting. Century Construction out of Erlanger will be leading our renovation.


In a few weeks, we will be given more details about construction timelines. I'll share those out as they come. Spring Break will be the start of some overhead work in the hallways. Next steps for us will be coming from Mr. Shipp and the architect...you'll get updates often.

Please add breakfast details for 1 and 2 hour delays to your classroom newsletter.
