Monday Minutes

November 6, 2017

Happy Monday and the first full week of November! I love November because, in my mind, I always equate it to "thankfulness" month. So, I want to express to you how much I appreciate you. Thank you for welcoming me as part of the staff here at Bethany. Thank you for allowing me into your classrooms to peek at the amazing instruction that occurs every day. Thank you for trusting me to help you shape the hearts and minds of your students.

We have a busy week this week! Kinder, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd will have the opportunity to enjoy an assembly this afternoon in the gym at 1:30. Wahoo!

On Wednesday, we will continue our book study on The Gifts of Imperfection. If you haven't had the opportunity to get into Google classroom and comment on Guideposts 1 and 2, please make sure you do that before our staff meeting on Wednesday. I am looking forward to our continued conversation and your insight about these guideposts.

Finally, we will end our week with the Veterans Day Assembly on Friday. I know that everyone has been busy preparing our students for this wonderful experience. I can't wait to see it! Please note that there will be no specials for our morning classes on Friday. We will begin specials on Friday with Kindergarten. Thank you for making that adjustment to your schedules, 5th, 4th, and 2nd grades!
