We Empower 2014
I am looking forward to stopping by Team mid-day collaboration times, or other small moments in time we can meet, and hearing about your "take-aways" from our W.E. 14 in-service day.
I also just found an article that perfectly aligns with the focus of many of yesterday's sessions... meaningful student engagement.
Persevering Through Poverty
With the Holiday Season in full swing, I fondly reflected on the fact that Edgewood School has a wonderful history of reaching out to help families in our community. Michelle Strezo has obtained eight $50 Jewel gift cards, for our homeless families, and I would like to have a staff Goodwill Drive this week. Please bring in any lightly used or new items, to be collected in boxes in our Lounge. On Friday, we will deliver all items collected from you to the Goodwill Store and Donation Center in Woodridge, on Woodward Ave.
