Am I Caring for Others, Personally and Professionally?

One of my absolute favorite quotes come from Wendy Mass, New York Times bestselling author, “Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about. Be kind. Always.”

As educators, we’re constantly looking for ways to move our school forward. But with all of the events of the past few weeks affecting families and students in area schools and our very own school family, I was reminded that the best idea will fall flat on its face if we prioritize progression over passion for people. We have to be cognizant of the fact that every day, we all most likely wake up with some type of personal and/or professional baggage. If we choose to ignore the basic needs of others, moving our school forward is never going happen. We must intentionally balance our goals and initiatives by also focusing on needs that may have nothing to do with education. Please make time in the week ahead for casual discussion and care that may have nothing to do with initiatives or education but everything to do with the welfare of others.

Ott Grants

If you applied for an Ott Grant, they were approved on 11/2. You should have received an email from Jamie Howard at Central Office announcing the grant and outlining guidelines for expenditure. Please note you have from now until 11/30 to submit PO's for the grant or you will need to wait until after 1/2019. This is for Ott grant related PO's only. Over $43,000 in grants were awarded. We are blessed to be the recipients.

Purchase Orders

A reminder that all purchase orders (other than Ott Grant funds) needed to be submitted by the end of the day today, 11/9. Any further purchases will need to wait until after January 1, 2019.
