MoASSP Messenger November 16, 2018
From all of us at MoASSP, "Happy Thanksgiving".
Quote for the Principal's Journey
Update From the Executive Director
Next week is one of my favorite weeks of the year. As a principal, I cherished this time of the year and encouraged our school community to do the same. Each year at Staley, one of our Thanksgiving traditions was to play Gary Mayabb's, "Eat Like a Champion" video schoolwide. Gary taught history and was the head wrestling coach at Staley. He is now manager of Greco-Roman USA Wrestling. Take a few minutes and watch this humorous yet powerful reminder of why we celebrate Thanksgiving. From all of us here in the MoASSP office (Doug, Katy, Ginny), we are thankful for the opportunity in serving each of you as you continue to make a positive difference in your school. We will take a break from the Messenger next week.
Experts In Our Midst
I have included six schools visited in recent weeks. Check out New Mark MS, Liberty North HS, Northgate MS, Liberty HS, Park Hill South, and Antioch MS. Our Missouri principals are doing amazing work. We can learn so much from each other. Spend a few minutes and see examples of branding and marketing, academic programming, websites, and more. Don't forget to click on images to bring up a larger view. In the next Messenger, we will highlight Eastgate 6th Grade Center, Staley HS, and Smith-Cotton HS.
