News You Can Use

Benchmarks are over!!! Thank you for getting your reports turned in to Wendy. I hope you were able to use some of the info you heard from DMAC. I know I learned several things when I went to meet with her.

Another piece of info...Remember the survey you completed right before Christmas break for Kevin about technology? Mrs. Tissy also had our 3rd-5th graders complete a similar one. Region 7 took that information and a company called Bright Bytes compiled it. I went to a meeting on Thursday that showed me the results and I learned several things about our campus. I want to share this info with you soon.

At our last faculty meeting we decided to go with the coke theme for our school board appreciation gifts. I am making a card to go with each basket that will say Our School Board....The Real Thing. Underneath a picture of a coke I will have the words reliable, encouraging, amazing leaders. If you want to incorporate that into the students cards and notes, please do. I have contacted the school board members and have some of their favorites. Here is what I have received
