The Warrior Way

Week of January 4th

Welcome Back!

I hope that each of you took the time to enjoy the "little things" in life with your family and friends over the break. truly am excited to see each of you on Monday. It has been an outstanding break but I am looking forward to beginning the second half of our first year together! Don't forget that Joyce is providing breakfast in the cafeteria in the morning!

I know that each of us will have some adjusting to do as we get back on schedule from break but remember that our energy level and enthusiasm will directly affect the energy level and enthusiasm of our students. If we don't let them know how happy we are to be with them and how excited we are about the great things we are going to do together the chance of them being excited about the second half of the year decreases dramatically. I know this is going to be a great 2016! Let's all make sure our students know that too!!

As always thank you for everything that you do for our students!!

Proud to be a Warrior,


If you have not already done so please follow the "your center" link below to add your thoughts to the group. I have a plan for using your ideas for our building.

Plan for Monday

For our PD/work day on Monday you will have the first half of the day to work with your team or in your classroom. Please do what you feel is best to prepare you for the second half of the year. I will come around to check in with teams and teachers to see how everyone is doing and if I can assist in any way. Please feel free to stop by and see me if you have any questions or ideas. At 12:30 we will meet in the library as a staff. There will be a PBS review/refresher from our Tier teams along with information on how Front Row can be utilized in your classes. At 1:30 our presenters will arrive to talk about what we can do to continue to use Google in our building.

The Light!

I think this is a great perspective on how we can build our students and help them reach their full potential. Each and every one of them has a light inside. Our job is to see it for them when they can not.
