Monday Memo

November 24 to 28

Thought for the Week...

With all the demands and expectations of our teachers it is hard to imagine that there is time in the day to reach beyond and yet they always do. This week I would like to recognize two of Unami's own for their accomplishments beyond the classroom.


In her first year as head coach of the CB West's girls' soccer team, Danielle Weber has led them to a state championship! What an amazing accomplishment. Congratulations to Danielle and to all the girls for another fantastic season of CB West Soccer!!!


I learned from a fellow teacher that Mary Wright just earned her National Board Certification! I see Mary nearly every morning since she is one of our early morning supervision volunteers. It is so like Mary that she did not mention this to me. She gives so much to our community, whether through helping hands, coordinating the blood drives, or always looking for ways to improve her practice...thank you for all that you do, Mary, and CONGRATULATIONS!
