HJHS Weekend Update
May 15, 2016
Every Student! Every Day!
So the Weekend Update was hard to do this weekend. The weather owned me! The family and I spent most of our weekend outside working in the yard and enjoying family time. Pure joy!
Even though it is hard to keep up routines as we anticipate our break, we must focus - every day - on finishing strong! Each day is an important day for learning! What are you teaching our students these last days? They are watching and learning from you! Use each day to its fullest! Our students behavior reflect the value of each classroom - if they see you merely counting days, they will too. Work together to find new and engaging lessons for our last nine days! Mrs. Miller and I have sent resources. Try something new! It might work!
As we enter our last 9 days, be ready for anything and everything. The kids are more excited than you and it is manifesting itself in some not-so enjoyable ways! With benchmark testing, normal routines are important!
I cannot ask enough ways or times, please be in the halls during class changes. Before school please be at your doors by 7:45 and after school usher the kiddos out of the building and hang out either outside or in the halls until 3:10. We need your help. Your influence and presence DOES make a difference!!
Continue to plan hard and keep your instruction engaging for all kids!
Have a great week of learning!
THANKS FOR REPRESENTING THE FACULTY!
THANKS COACH COLE FOR ORGANIZING THE EVENT AND COORDINATING WITH OUR GUEST FACULTY! IT WAS FUN TO WATCH THE KIDS IN THE STANDS! EVERYONE HAD A GREAT TIME!
