Teacher Appreciation Luncheon

We will be celebrating Teacher Appreciation a week early this year. Teacher Appreciation Day is scheduled for May 9th but because of other commitments I have I want to honor you and your commitment to our students on Wednesday May 2nd.

The Food Service Class will be helping me in this celebration by providing the catering service for lunch on Wednesday - All staff are encouraged and welcome to have lunch on me Wednesday - Lunch will be in the staff lounge between 10:30-1pm

Personal Day Requests

There have been a number of requests off for personal days to extend time off for a holiday. There is contract language stating personal days are not to extend a break. I have had many individual conversations with staff members. I will not be approving these days off as it often leaves us short with who does come to work.

Finishing the year strong

We have just six weeks left and I want to remind everyone of the importance of maintaining structure and routine. It is important to remember the students need to see us modeling professionalism until the last day. With that, please remember to be here on time and if you need to leave early you should be checking in with me or Traci.
