Primary Points to Ponder

2020 Vision!

The Best School on Earth!

Think about our Vision statement.....what is that makes us The Best School on Earth?

  • Relationships
  • High Expectations
  • All our kids OUR kids
  • Focus on Learning
  • Focus on Results
  • Collaborative Culture
  • All kids will be Successful!

As we finish out the school year, let's all take time to reflect on how our personal beliefs, habits, and actions contribute or hinder our progress to reaching our Vision.

Know that Ruthie and I believe in you 100%. We are grateful for each of you and want to grow you and support you throughout our journey together to be The Greatest School on Earth!

Sub Plans

Some tips for Sub Plans:


Make sure the activities can be done without any technology or leave your computer. It is very difficult for a sub to get through the day without any technology. Students are used to technology being used. It is hard to keep 4 and 5 year olds entertained without music, video, etc.

Some Suggestions:

Leave directions on how to use an ipad under the document camera. You can plug in the sound cord and the picture looks okay on the screen.

There are at times extra laptops that could be checked out in advance. Email Walker.

If you have a Clevertouch, leave directions on how to use parts of it for the sub.

Sub Binder

Sub Binders in the office need to be updated every time there is a change in the schedule, roster, curriculum.
