July Update


Woh! It's hard to believe we're already into July! I hope you are enjoying summer and had a great holiday weekend!

Throughout June, I was busy LEARNING! I kicked off summer with a 2-day workshop with Dr. Phil Warrick that was provided by the RRVEC. We had great conversations regarding where we are at as a district, where we want to go, and how we are going to get there! We are so excited to share our learning with you!

I've been racking my brain with this year's theme at an attempt to make it meaningful PK-12. So here it goes........ drum roll???? Are you drumming????

MISSION: POSSIBLE Together we can!

To go coincide with our VIP/Hollywood decor, of course :)

This year we're going to be on a mission! A mission to do great, powerful things in the lives of our families, colleagues, and the #1 reason that brings us together- our students! We're going to be on a mission to provide our students our very best to help them learn and grow. We have an amazing staff full of knowledge, wisdom, and passion for making a difference in the lives of our students. TOGETHER we can make anything possible!

Have a great continuation of summer! If you are vacationing, share a pic on the #NBLearners hashtag to stay connected and see the amazing things we're all doing to relax and recharge over the summer. The Gruenbergs are headed to Minneapolis for a few days at the end of month. I can't wait to have some unplugged (summer classes will be done, yay!) time away with the kids. I'll continue to be in and out throughout the summer as I'll be "setting the stage for learning" (don't worry, I've got a lot more!). Feel free to reach out if you need anything!

Don't forget to check out the link to order a staff t-shirt if you'd like!

Happy July!
