KUDOS!

What a great day we had today!! Our 'Back to School' Cookout and Field Day went extremely well. I couldn't be more proud of the students who participated and of the staff who helped organize and coordinate today's activites. Not one student had a negative complaint, but they all wore smiles, shared laughs, and enjoyed playing with teachers. Even Mr. Hiller covered the office to answer phones so office staff could eat too.


Extra 'kudos' to Joe Meyer, Ms. Amico, Mr. Bartkowski, and Ms. Tomzak. THANK YOU!

Bloom's Taxonomy According to Seinfeld

This is not the 'revised' Bloom's, but the concept of improving thinking skills at any age remains the same. Please watch carefully and observe as Jerry Seinfeld models for us the 6 Levels of Bloom's Taxonomy.
