- We did a fabulous job during the fire drill. What did you think of using the green cards? Did they make it easier? We knocked one whole minute off of our exit time! Please remember to turn off your lights and close your doors when exiting.
- Please be sure to have a working walkie-talkie when going outside with your students. If you are going outside with your grade level team, one of you should have it in your possession and turned on.
I picked up the book, The Energy Bus, as my next professional reading.
From the back cover:
...an international best seller by Jon Gordon, takes readers on an enlightening and inspiring ride that reveals 10 secrets for approaching life and work with the kind of positive, forward thinking that leads to true accomplishment - at work and at home. Jon infuses this engaging story with keen insights as he provides a powerful roadmap to overcome adversity and bring out the best in yourself and your team. When you get on The Energy Bus you’ll enjoy the ride of your life!
I also ordered the coordinating picture book, and I'm excited to share it with your children! While I am reading, you get a break! The link to sign up is forthcoming.
