No Leadership Workshop on Monday, 5/9
Luncheon From Anne Hannah
Yoga for Educators- MCS educators are invited to attend free, mixed-level yoga classes this May. The practice of yoga has been shown to have many benefits- from healing injuries, to stress-reduction and mindfulness, to increasing strength and flexibility.
Staff from any building are invited to attend any class, or all three classes. Here are some details:
All classes will begin at 3:45 to allow teachers from all buildings to get there. Classes will be 1 hour long, ending at 4:45.

Leader in Me
I need every person in our school to fill out the Leader in Me staff survey. We need data, positive or negative, about how the Leader in Me works in our district. You don't need to be trained to fill out the survey. I have the link here and I have made several QR codes that can be used for easy access. I will send the survey to all of the parents at Klager. I would really appreciate adding something to newsletters to encourage parent response. I do have a paper copy of the survey if you think any parent would response using this format.
