I still have not received details about the visit from the district, but I do now know it will be on the 21st or 22nd. I'll share more details with Team Leaders during our meeting on Monday, but in the meantime, please spend some time with students reviewing why we have school-wide expectations, why we focus on a new life principal each week, how that helps us all build character, and why character is important.

***If you want to borrow the banner to take a fun class picture, please come and get it from the office. I would love to add some pictures to our bulletin board!


1. Please complete the required Child Find and Suicide Prevention training as soon as possible. Remember to sign the sheets across from my office and put the certificate for the Suicide Prevention in my box as well.

2. Remember to electronically sign all walk-throughs and observations.

3. Please sign up on the google form Margareta sent out if you want your room painted this summer and/or if you have maintenance needs.
