The Weekly Hoot

May 20-24, 2013

Greetings All -

Happy Friday! Trying to get this out quickly this afternoon. I just got back from the 5th grade Field Trip. Those were the last group of kiddos on campus that I had as a teacher and they are about to move on. A bittersweet moment for me! :( It is with great pleasure that I let you know that the CLL and CLF positions have all been chosen. Connie Wetuski was hired Wednesday night at the school board meeting as the Collaborative Learning Leader (CLL). This week we conducted interviews for the Collaborative Learning Facilitators and four have been chosen. Our PK/K CLF will be Kim Ross, our 1st/2nd grade CLF will be Amy Keally, our 3rd/4th grade CLF will be Amberly Kolby, and our 5th grade CLF will be Tonya Carroll. Congratulations to all of these ladies. I am looking forward to next year. I hope all of you are surviving these last couple of weeks. If Christy or myself can be of any help at all, please let me know. Also, if you have any duty passes, get them turned in pretty quickly. My calendar is filling up FAST!!!! :) Have a great weekend!

Soaring with you this year,


Owl Wings This Week Go To...

our 1st and 2nd grade teachers for diving right into a Project-Based Learning Lesson, grouping their kiddos together, and giving it a try. The presentations I saw showed a lot of work done by the students. I am happy to see you all stepping outside of your comfort zone and trying something new! Thank you for that! You are all on a roll!! :)
