February Staff PD Day
The learning plan document is in your box now. I will need to have your learning plan to me by Monday, January 28th. That plan needs to include what you intend to research/learn, how it will be or how you see it being used to enhance the learning in your classroom and anything you may need to implement what you have learned.
I will likely do a short little Wakelet presentation to start the day. I know not all of you will use it (and there is no pressure to do so) however it is a very cool tool for curating digital content of virtually any kind. As of this week, students can do it as well without even having an account. Think of the possibilities, not just for yourself, but you could have the kids curate.
I use it personally all the time. Heidi and Cathy use it right now with the middle school kids in very different ways. I'm hoping they will share as well. I'll have some Wakelet swag to give away as well.
3rd Quarter Chapel Offering
This year's trip is to Peru and that is where the money will go. There will also be a week's worth of print and video resources available, making it perfect for Lutheran School Week. We can talk about it more later. I want to get this to you earlier so some planning can be done in advance of that. It is our intent to focus on this more during Lutheran Schools Week.
TLSP Open House and ECE Open House
Folks it is key that we do all we can to get behind these events and support them. At a minimum, we need to maintain current enrollment numbers and at best we need to grow. If not, cuts will need to happen. We are at the break even point with enrollment and needed faculty and staff. Please do all you can to help.
