Counselor's Corner:

Week of 5/6 - Unfortunately I am still in the midst of MAP make-up tests. Classes will be postponed.

Due to all of the activities throughout the rest of the year I will have everyone sign up for their last class with me at a convenient time for you. I will post this in the lounge and/or bring to PLCs.

Library News

May 10th - All library books are due. This will give us time to get them back on the shelves and send out notices for any “missing” books

Congratulations to Kariann Dryer on accepting the Zitman and Pacific Intermediate Library Media Specialist position for the 2019-2020 school year. Please welcome Mrs. Dryer to Zitzman Elementary.

PBL Project Idea:

The first full week of every May is "Teacher Appreciation Week" (this year it's May 6th-10th), and that's the inspiration for this exercise. Students will consider the qualities of a great teacher (of course, they must first define the term "great teacher"), and then choose a teacher (past or present) who has possessed those qualities. Then students must decide how they can show appreciation for that teacher in a way that fits the spirit of the week (i.e. reminding a teacher that his or her hard work is appreciated), and can be achieved with limited resources. Hopefully this is something students can have fun with at this time of year... here's the link: http://pblproject.com/page.aspx?pageid=PBL-ww-Teacher-Appreciation
