Midterms and MLK

Hello Raider Nation --

Well, the Super Bowl is set – New England vs. Los Angeles (East vs. West)!

This past weekend was another display of the talent of our dance program. First, thank you all for working with Heather as she had to navigate practices with school closings and delayed openings. This was my first dance concert and I was completely mesmerized! If you didn’t see the finale, you truly missed an "out of this world experience." Kudos to Heather and her students for a fantastic concert.

Just a reminder regarding your mid-year conferences – you will need to make sure you have all of your artifacts (8 total – 4 from Domain 1 and 4 from Domain 4) uploaded. Additionally, you will need to have your mid-year data for your SLO. All should be uploaded BEFORE your conference.

Finally, today marks the celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Schools and offices close on this day, but people must remember that MLK Day is about more than having another day off. The day has come to be recognized as a day of service nationwide, so take these 24 hours to do something that honors King’s values and his revolutionary place in American history. It is a day of service, after all — but make sure that giving back to the community doesn’t begin and end with January 15th. If you are able to go out and give your time by cleaning up neighborhoods, serving at a soup kitchen, or just spending time with members of a community in need, then start by searching for volunteer opportunities near you.

Have a fantastic week!
