Winslow's Words

December 7, 2015


Our December character trait is working! Our kids are keeping up on this. I have heard many speak about it and have been proud of them. Keep reminding them and remember we will have a student from each class as our character trait leaders (I need a catchy name for this). We will honor them next month.


  • Please let Cindy and I know the time of your Christmas party on December 18th. We will have parents call and this will enable us to pass the word along!
  • We will not have grade level meetings again until the new year. We will have our first round of the eDirect testing completed and also up-to-date on ELA and STAR Assessments.
  • We are working on a Data Wall for the conference room for grades K-5! We hope to have it completed soon.
  • We will be going to the high school to practice for the music program on Wednesday afternoon. We will have more details to everyone soon!
