Science Night and Parent Peek...

We had great feedback from our Science Night and Parent Peek.

Families really enjoyed the activities and the interactive environment. Thank you to Kelli for organizing and everyone who helped pull off Science Night behind the scenes and working the event.

Thanks to all for the great classroom activities during Parent Peek. We had the most parents in attendance than any we've offered so far, which is great! Their feedback was positive and appreciative!

Are you interested???

Here are some opportunities for anyone interested as we continue to plan for next year:

  • Leadership Planning Group- This is for anyone who would like to help spearhead the work for next year. This group will analyze student needs, research what other successful schools are doing, plan faculty meetings, organize committees and summer work and any other ideas determined by the group. If you are interested in being part of this group and can commit to leading out the initiative, please email me by Tuesday.
  • PBIS Summer Conference- If you would like to help lead the work with Positive Behavior Supports, plan on attending the Missouri Positive Behavior Support Summer Training Institute June 13-15 at Tan-Tar-A. Please email me by this Friday so I can register you. This Institute provides training about protocols for each level of tiered support. We would participate as a Tier 1 school. Here's a link with more details.
