TOP 5 THOUGHTS FOR THE WEEK....

1. We made week 1 successfully! Rest over the weekend will help week 2!

2. We are down about 150 students. It sure makes a difference.

3. These students, (with the exception of a very few), came to school with smiles on their faces daily and left with smiles on their faces. That's because they have amazing teachers who took time to care this week!

4. Always remember you WHY. Why you come to school every day and that will keep you going!

5. SMILE!!!!

THIS WEEK HAPPENINGS ...

*It's the first full week. Pace yourselves. Start out slow so you have momentum for the entire week! :)

*PTO Meeting is at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday. Team leaders let me know if you have any immediate needs from PTO.

*Please continue checking transportation to ensure that we send students home the right way daily.

*REMIND 101 - Don't forget to join Remind 101 this year. I have created a 19-20 Faculty group so even if you have been part in the past, you must rejoin this year. See directions below.
