Welcome Back!

Welcome Back! I hope you had a restful break!

Since this week is a short week, it is a perfect time to review those routines and procedures you have established for your classroom and for your grade level. Our students are coming back relaxed, out of the routine, and ready to socialize with their friends that they haven't seen in a while. Investing a little bit of time now will gain you instructional time in the long run!

College Week is next week. Get out your college gear and begin decorating your doors/entrances to your classrooms. This week is also an opportunity to re-connect with your students. Share about your college experiences and tell them why you valued college.

Our next staff meeting is on January 10th. We will be discussing Guideposts 5-7 (pages 87-104) from The Gifts of Imperfection. As always, please complete the assignments in Google Classroom prior to our staff meeting in order to receive full credit for professional development.
