Environmental Education Brochure
This brochure contains a number of "outreach classroom programs" you might be interested in, at a low/reduced cost. Great authentic learning that can spark student interests!
If you would like more information check with Julie. I also have a copy of the brochure, but am not sure if it "ready for prime time".
School-wide Reading Incentive
Thank you for you flexibility in sending kids out to get their shirts ironed, I know it causes a slight disruption to your day but it means a lot to the students and to the volunteers who enjoy the interaction with the kids! Thank you to Nancy Ebertz and Shelley Sorenson for helping organize the monthly incentives.

Monday SLO/Teachscape (optional after school)
A few people have asked me if we had any book studies in mind for the school year. I think this book is a great option. Take a look at the video for more information on the concept. My thought was to see who has interest and begin sometime around the end of this month or beginning of February.
There are a number of online modules to generate thought also so this could be a blended environment, where we meet face-to-face and through the online discussion starters. But do understand this is an OPTIONAL study and will occur after school. It is something, however, you could document under Professionalism, Domain 4 in Danielson.
