Corbat Chronicle

Week of September 7

Dear Team Morrish,

Happy Labor Day!

As I type this there are only about 24 hours until our students arrive and I can't wait! This week will go by quickly and my goal is to focus on my one word: Connect. I chose this word because I want to be present in every moment with staff, students and parents. The first week is all about creating a culture of learning, building trust and having fun along the way! I love this time of year.

Here are a few reminders for our first week:

  • Tuesday: If it is NOT raining, all staff meet outside the office at 12:15 to prepare for our red carpet introductions while families wait outside on the blacktop. If it is raining, we will invite families to come inside our gym. We will send all students to classrooms at 12:25 and I will make an announcement at 12:35 to begin our day.
  • Thursday: PBiS CREEK Expectations Taught 1:15-2:15 (see schedule on blue button below)
  • Friday: PBiS CREEK Expectations Taught 2:00-3:00 (see schedule on blue button below)

Please remember to wear your Morrish theme shirt on Tuesday. We will purchase a red T shirt for each staff member this year.

Finally, I want each one of you to know that:

  • You have a gift that others need
  • Your actions define your impact

This will be the #BestYearEver! Enjoy today!
