The Weekly Hoot

September 2-6, 2013

Greetings All -

We made it! I saw a link on Mary Kroll's Facebook page last night that said something like "There is no tired like first week of school teacher tired", and boy is that true!!

You all have done a wonderful job this week getting routines in place, building strong bonds with your students, participating in CLC, and handling snafus that have come up along the way. As we all know, each day gets a little easier. THANK GOODNESS!! :)

Last week I told you that we had hired a new custodian by the name of Manuella Uvalle. Ms. Uvalle was unable to take the job because of an injury to her hip. We have found a replacement by the name of Jessica Hernandez. Ms. Hernandez began today, and seems to be getting into a routine. Thank you all for being patient as we get our custodial duties figured out.

I realize we are still having a couple of glitches with lesson plans. For this week, if you are setting them up as a team planner, please just copy them out and put them in my box on Tuesday morning.

Again, thanks for a great first week. I couldn't ask for a better, more positive team of people to teach the young students at Anderson-Shiro!

Have a great weekend!!

Soaring with you this year,


Owl Wings This Week Go To...

Joanna Sorenson and Jennifer Parrott for coming up with a plan for our students to have music class as well as art! Stay tuned for details.... :)
