Behavior Bits

July 2022

Congratulations!

You did it - and you did it well. The 2021-2022 school year was not for the faint of heart. At the outset it appeared to be like any other school year, but we quickly saw it was not. Learning loss was real. Extended time off schedule and out of the classroom left many skill deficits. Classroom management and building relationships with one another to better build campus communities were more important than ever. Now that you are here, I send you a heart felt thank you for all that you have done. I hope this month's Bits finds you in a rested body [and with a growth mindset] because next year, we are going to really knock it out of the park!
