The Bear Necessities
November 17, 2017
Second, I learned that what I thought to be true about this staff actually is. My time in LSR7 prior to leaving gave me the opportunity to meet amazing people, my life improved greatly while surrounded by this staff. Your conversations about life helped make me the mom, daughter, wife, sister, grand-daughter that I am today.
This school family absolutely makes me teary eyed when I take a moment to think about how blessed I am in this life of mine.
I hope you find yourself feeling blessed by your family and some time away. I also hope you will take a moment to think about these amazing people you spend much of your day with, and I hope you take a moment to write them a note, give them a hug or simply tell them thank you!!
Time sheets, 2 things
1. Check them weekly
2. Please stay within your assigned number of hours unless you have permission to go beyond your work hours. I have many folks working beyond their weekly hours and it is doing a number on our budget! Your time sheet will have a warning at the bottom if you have went over hours. This is your red flag to be more cautious about timing in and out on time.
The 100 day findings are spot on!!!!
Fun, we need more of it
We need to help kids be thinkers, not kids who know how to "Do" school
Project based work is key
Student interests should lead the learning
Focus should be on success of students
Mental Health has to be a focus
OK, so these are kinda things we know and do daily.....I feel pretty good....
Our subgroups should not be behind on state testing (not new news)
Our staff should reflect our student body (we've been discussing this for years)
