MIS Monday Message

November 16 - 20

Looking Back

Last week was very busy, and I know we're all ready for a little break. Thank you so much for all the time and effort you put into preparing for the Active Shooter drill, Family Night, and the Grandparents' Luncheon. We had a ton of grandparents and visitors here on Friday and they all gave very positive feedback on how welcoming our school is and how much they enjoyed the day. If you have any suggestions for ways to improve, please email me. We are always looking for ways to get better!

I found some great resources this weekend from the Teaching Channel. If you don't receive their emails I encourage you to sign up. They have great videos that are usually short and very informative. They also have a blog and resources for new teachers. I'm linking the newsletter I received this week from them below and encourage you to check out the resources.

Have a great week!
