It has been wonderful to visiting your classrooms with academics now in full swing. I am grateful for all of your hard work and preparation which ultimately leads to exceptional teaching. We are certainly blessed with a gifted staff!
I have also enjoyed reviewing your goals for the year. I look forward to working alongside you in achieving these goals. Please let me know if there is any way in which I can be of assistance.
I have attached the amended Mass schedule for Monday below just in case. In addition, please note that I will call for Singing Saints Choir students to be dismissed from class at 12:30. Mrs. Skidds will escort them to the Church at that time to prepare for the Mass.
One notice for the upcoming week - as in past years, students from the Grodon Center will be coming to the school to assist with our recycling. Recycling will be collected on Tuesdays and Fridays at 12:45pm, beginning Tuesday, September 10th. I kindly ask that you leave your recycling bins outside your classroom doors on these afternoons.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, or simply just want to discuss something going on in your classroom, please feel free to stop by the office or send me an email.
I look forward to the week ahead!
Positive Behavior Reinforcement
As I've been stopping in your classrooms, I have heard many of you using and emphasizing positive behavior expectations. This is great! I thought you may find the attached article helpful, as it provides some useful, easy to implement classroom strategies to assist with this process.
