FABULOUS FOOD DAYS!
The food committee has met and we have a SOLID plan to bring back food days.
Some background...at the beginning of the year i had more than one staff member tell me that this was something they wanted to see brought back. On our 3-2-1, it was listed again people wanted to see come back. We put together a committee.
Each team is on the below chart, twice. Each grade level is partnered with someone else on the campus. You'l have TWO dates throughout the year that you'll be responsible for the "food days". One time you'll be responsible for the MAIN course, one time you'll be responsible for the sides. For example, the office has November, so, we'll be bringing all the different meats, all 7 of us. 2nd grade would then have to bring a bunch of Thanksgiving-y different sides. The next time we have soups and salads, and so 2nd grade will bring different salads and we'll will bring different soups.
Make sense? Your grade level food person can explain it in more depth, but I AM SO EXCITED! This is part of being a family...and #weaarewhitt...we can do this!!

a techno tip for the week!
Educators are models of learning for kids. As educators' learning shifts from the "sit and get" model to the collaboration (connected) model, that shift hopefully transfers to their teaching as well. If an educator controls his or her learning through self-direction, that learning becomes more meaningful. Authentic self-directed learning becomes self-motivating. That does more than translate to a better-educated educator -- it also creates a teacher advocate for collaborative learning.
