For the week of December 7th
Staff Holiday Party
Thursday at 7pm is also the High School Band Concert.
What a conference!
I came away with a wonderful reminder about how great American Education is and how we are really moving forward. Every speaker spoke to the need for us to tell our story. We are rocking so many things. We are great people. We have an outstanding school and incredible students and parents. Like everyone we make mistakes, but if we use the mistakes as learning opportunity we are moving forward.
One of the main goals I have for the new year will be to tell our story to everyone, in any and every way possible. Look for more in the coming weeks.
I will also be out and about more and look to start "Appy Hour" by February.
Classroom teachers currently using eSpark will meet with the Anthony on their planning time on December 7th. Anthony will arrive at noon and needs to leave by 2:55 for a conference call at 3:00 that he will take in his car. He will start with kindergarten at 12:10 in the small conference room. First grade is next, same place at 12:55. Second grade plus Cindy H will meet at 1:45 and third grade plus Kathy will meet at 2:25. All groups need to meet in the small conference room as the other meeting room is used for pre scheduled meetings.
(Kathy and Cindy, please stop by the office and let Katie know if you would like to switch spots.)
On December 14th, Amie and Mary will be trained to begin using the eSpark. They will meet in the afternoon in the small conference room.

Julie Charney did a super job getting the wreaths created that will be used for the Senior Citizens Favors. Thanks Kathy O for purchasing these for the event.
Julie has also prepared the Building Ambassador conversations, and they will be on cards by Monday afternoon.
Fourth Grade teachers, please send me a list of who you have chosen as guides and ambassadors by Monday afternoon. fI get a chance, I can have them run a trial run on Tuesday afternoon or early Wednesday.
First and Second Grade: I know that your friends may get out a bit late to recess after singing, and I will talk to the recess staff about keeping the students out for at least 15 minutes and then a solid twenty for eating in the room.
