Staff News and Information

Weekly Communication

  • A point of concern. Many staff members have brought it to my attention that they are hearing negative talk in regards to some of the changes at West Union. Let's focus all of our energy on caring for all kids during this time of change.
  • Be kind to one another. We are all stressed in one way or another as we start the new year. Phrases like good morning, please, or thank you, are ways to add a positive vibe to our staff community.
  • Please remember to shut your doors when leaving for a fire drill. Many doors were left open. The doors need to be closed because it helps with fire containment.
  • Reminder for your students. Students that eat breakfast need to find their card before getting food. Cards are color coded for each grade. Kinder purple, 1st red, 2nd yellow, 3rd pink, 4th blue, 5th orange, 6th green, and SLC has their own column with smiley faces.


  • Fall Fundraiser tickets to the Spelling Bee and Auction are still for sale. Currently there are only 19 individual tickets and 30 family tickets available. Family tickets are for 2 adults and up to 3 kids. Remember tickets are PRE-SALE ONLY, there will be no ticket sales at the door (not even for staff). Can't make the event?

  • Old school and old doors. Just a reminder that the doors do not automatically lock once they are unlocked. Many of the doors need the key to be turned all the way back to the locked position in order for a door to be locked.

  • Please respect each others space. If a staff member's room is locked, please do not enter and use that room without permission.

This Week...

Monday


  • The Monday Good Morning Challenge. Find 10 people to greet with "Good Morning", as quickly as you can.
  • Robin is out of the building from 12:00-3:15


  • Monday September 19th is National Talk Like a Pirate Day. At first glance, it may seem like nothing more than another silly made-up holiday. However, if you dig a little deeper, engaging activities like this provide us an opportunity that would be a shame to miss. Taking even just a short amount of time to utilize things like the Pirate theme, we can bring learning to life for students. Argh! Let’s Teach Like a Pirate!
