The Warrior Way
I shared this video with our families as well and I think it is a great tool for reflecting on what is most important to each of us individually as well as collectively as a staff. Rise of the Guardians is one of my favorite movies. Yes, to our younger staff members, I am old and many of my favorite movies are now animated. The message behind this particular clip is very straight forward and powerful at the same time. Reminding ourselves of our "center" will help us to stay focused and positive during the difficult times both at home and at school. I would like each of you to take a moment to think about what drives you to keep showing up and doing this extremely difficult job on a daily basis. That is your "center".
Thank you for having a "center" that pushes you to continue to provide opportunities for our students each and every day.
Proud to be a Warrior,
Keep it Up!

Highlight! New and returning staff! That means everyone
As I thought of all the good things at Winfield Intermediate I kept coming back to the positive culture throughout the building. As a I thought about all the reasons why that culture exists I kept coming back to our collective staff. Is life perfect? Of course not. That is because we are all pushing to grow and working hard to do what is best for students each day. But I truly appreciate the commitment the staff shows to working together for our common goals.
We brought in a considerable number of new staff members this year and they are doing a great job of learning from our returning members while at the same time contributing their own positive influence.
I can't say enough about our returning staff members and how they have shown all of our new staff, me included, what it means to be a Winfield Warrior. We are nearing the halfway point of our school year and your leadership continues to drive the positive culture within our building. Thank you!
Truly Proud To Be A Warrior!!!
