Principal Passage...


Here it is - the last full week prior to our Thanksgiving break. My best laid plans are to get many things done before holiday mode sets in. On Friday, I will set up the Thankful Thinking table we had in the lobby last year. The students wrote some incredible, entertaining and touching things last year. Feedback on the activity was very positive on all fronts. Will share with students, during announcements, the purpose and the option to participate if they would like.

The PTA has several events going on this month - Wonderful Wednesday this week. Casseroles will be delivered on Wednesday. If you think you might be receiving/ordered one (or more) consider bringing a cooler. They will not all fit in our school refrigerators. We have a very special parents and PTA.

Colonial Life representative acknowledges that he is not here for some afternoon planning times. He offered to talk with you over the phone or ask someone in office to cover your class so you can meet on Nov. 18th. He apologized for the inconvenience.

Progress reports due out or information posted for Tuesday, November 17th.
