Senior Leadership Team

Wednesday, Dec. 9th, 9:30am

Senior Leadership Team will be followed by Elementary Leadership Team. We are planning on a shortened meeting so we can enjoy a combined Christmas Lunch at 12:30 with our secondary peers.

Quick Update-

If you caught the last video message from Dr. Jungmann, you may have caught that besides a few departments combining at the new building on Sunshine, some movement is happening with KAC. The west end of the building will undergo a renovation to create more efficient work space for a combination of departments and teams. To that end, Bret and J are now in the east end of KAC, and will be located in what was formerly the mail room. We will be sharing that space with our secondary counterparts Julie and Dave. It is expected we will be in that space until Aug 1, 2016.

A reminder with this excitable time of year, to balance great instruction, learning and expectations with all joys of the holidays and programs. For so many of our kiddos, school provides the greatest anchor, and we can support them best by not lowering expectations while still providing meaningful learning opportunities that can be fun and festive that are intentional. Some have a very hard time during seasonal holidays, and may ask for love and attention in the most unloving ways. Please model compassion, empathy, gratitude and support for your staff and students.

Make it a fantastic week!

Although engagement is highest during the elementary years, are we satisfied with 76%?
