Maker Week!

One of the best weeks of the year has arrived! I hope you and your students are excited for this fun and creative adventure. We had originally scheduled an assembly this week, but that won't work with Maker Week going on. Instead, we will have it on Wednesday, February 17.

We have some high school and junior high students coming on Monday from 10:15-11:45, 12:15-1:00, and 2:00-2:45. We also have students coming on Tuesday from 10:15-11:45. If you are interested in some of these students helping with your planning or with your building during these times, please let me know.

Happy Maker Week!

Golden Tickets

We are off to such an amazing start with the Golden Tickets! Kids love them, and parents are so excited to hear good things about their children. Thank you for making this idea work! As you send kids up, please be sure to write what they did on the ticket. When appropriate, send them with the work they did so well completing. It is great for them to share.

Most Likely To Succeed

I want us to follow up on the movie we saw at Sebastiani last month. Please plan 15 minutes in your Wednesday agendas to talk about Most Likely to Succeed. I will have a few questions for your team to consider on Wednesday.
