Happy New Year and Welcome Back!

I hope each of you had a wonderful break! I know it will be hard to come back in the morning but just think how sweet that first hug from your students will be! Remember that while some of our students probably had a wonderful break, some may have experienced heartbreak, hunger and disappointment. I encourage you to give some extra love to students as they transition back. Tomorrow (and throughout the week) is a great time to review expectations, introduce the new Weaverville Elementary behavior matrix, and practice behaviors in various locations throughout the school. As you know, assuming that students will remember what you expect and will follow it without question could result in a lot of lost instructional time later on. I hope you have a super and productive week!
