The Weekly Howl
Week of August 21st, 2017
New Curriculum, Technology, Report Cards OH MY!!!!
From the Desk of Brian Wesson:
Brian Wesson, Technology Integration Specialist
Not many people know that I started my educational journey at CN as part of Wolf Lake Elementary’s 1994 Kindergarten class. Fast-forward to present day and you’ll find me beginning my 6th year as a CN staff member! I started in a 5th grade classroom, and now I’m here to support technology integration throughout the district. When I’m not hanging out with my fellow cougars, I can be found spending time with my wife, Emily, and my daughter, Thea.
Grateful Friday Challenge
Week 2: Another great week is in the books!
Did you know that you worked 5 days this week?
Did you know when you cut through an apple sideways you get a 5-pointed star?
Did you know that the majority of people have 5 digits on each of their hands?
Did you know that 5 is the only prime number to end in the digit 5?
Grateful Friday High Five Challenge! I want you to put those 5 digits to work!
Run the 5’s up and down the aisles of your classroom, collect them in the hallway as kids walk through the door to learn, and/or air high five your colleague who is 4 doors down from you! (If they don’t play back, it will look like you are waving at them…also great!)
Also, if you are not feeling confident in your High Five abilities, check out the etiquette video below for some helpful tips!
