Principal's Update

December 7 - 11

Please continue to keep Hope and her family in your thoughts and prayers. She and her family traveled to Anderson for her Nana's funeral. Barbara Fewell lost her father last week and Tony Cox lost his mother. Sherry McKinney lost her father-in-law on Friday. Please Keep these individuals in your thoughts. I'm sure a card or acknowledgement of their loss would be greatly appreciated.

Muffins with Ms. Myles will be on Tuesday from 7:00 a.m. - 8:00 a.m. Please include this invitation in your weekly newsletter. This will be an informal time for conversations with parents and guardians.

Dr. Hodge will be here on Thursday to provide support for our goals of becoming a Professional Learning Community and to suggest possible strategies to help us effectively implement the strategies on our School Improvement Plan. Dr. Hodge will be visiting classrooms.

Hero Readers

If you need assistance in securing a reader for your classroom. Please let me know. I know several individuals (Mikki Rentschler, Kathy Pender, John Gregory, Sylvia Berry, Resolute employees and school board members) who would love to come to our school to read.

Information about the Roper Mountain Science Center is in the workroom. The course is free for public school teachers and is offered during the summer.

As we get closer to the holiday break, students are becoming increasingly excited. Please continue to be consistent in expectations, consequences, incentives and monitoring students.

Please support our PTO by attending the monthly meeting on Thursday, Dec. 10th at 5:30 p.m. It is important for parents and teachers to work together to accomplish our goal of high student achievement for all students.

The PTO Parents' night out has been cancelled.

Thank you for all you do for our students and school!
