Shout-out to Claire Seever, JD Fox, and Hawken Mersch for placing in their shows at the Tulsa State Fair! Mr. Epperson does a great job with our FFA kids.
Our Academic Team had their district competition this week and will have regionals soon. Good luck to Mrs. Stauder and those students!
Finally, our Big Red Pride finished up their marching competition season this week. I know Mr. McKinney, Mr. Green, and those kids have worked really hard. With a predominantly young bunch, I've noticed marked improvement from them each week at halftime of our football games.
Relevant and/or meaningful things I came across this week on the world wide web:
This is really good, in my opinion. Differentiating between compliance and respect. Do your kids need to like you to learn? Interesting stuff. Also, the TED talk referenced is one Mr. Dugger showed us a couple of years back.
On your way out for the weekend, reminders for our duty crew for next week:
Breakfast: Mrs. Lewis / First Lunch: Mr. Epperson / Second Lunch: Ms. Frailey
Student of the Month nominations are in need of some feedback for October. We're halfway through the month, so if you have anyone deserving, please take a minute and update that sheet. Here's a quick link back to it if you need it (although it's the same sheet we've been using).
Have a great weekend!
