#summerLS Dave Burgess Teach Like a PIRATE Challenge

Week of January 18-January 22, 2016

Building a Culture of Care

Thank you all for a wonderful week of coming together and collaborating to help complete TRC testing. We have just a few days to go and things are looking great!

As you go into this wonderful three day weekend I ask that each of us reflect on what our legacy will be when the scholars leave our classrooms and move forward in life.

Have a great and restful weekend!

*Please make sure your Reading Log is signed by an adult. The entry will not be counted if there is not an adult signature.

* Please mark each entry with either a C - for a chapter book or a P - for a picture book. This makes the check-out process go much faster for Ms. Fajt and Ms. Scharer.

Looking for extra compensation hours?

Help us keep our scholars safe by signing up to ride an afternoon bus. It only takes 10 min and it is a wonderful time to build relationships with scholars. Please email Mr. Mohrien.

Note on Bathroom Breaks!

As a friendly reminder please ensure that all scholars take classroom bathroom breaks unless there is an absolute emergency.
