Week of October 29th - November 2nd

Relationship Building

When was the last time you sat and had a conversation with a student about the things they love to do or how they spent their weekend? Believe it or not, our most challenging students need this the MOST!!!! All students need to know you care about them and that you are interested in who they are and what they enjoy. As the year progresses, we get into the hustle and bustle of our daily schedules and we forget to find time for these little things that GO A LONG WAY! Take a step back and make time to continue relationship building with your kiddos, it will pay off!

Something to keep in mind...................

Attendance - piggy backing off of Ann's message.

At out staff meeting this week, we will be brainstorming ways to assist our families in making sure the kiddos get to school! We sent out 30 attendance letters last week, this means the kids have missed 6 or more days of school thus far! Please start thinking of ideas to support our families and help them push to get the kids into our building on a daily basis and on time! Changes must be made!!!
