We Did It.... and Hopefully Lived to Tell About It!

Yes, we can close the book on the first week of school for the 2012-2013 school year - awesome job everyone. It took so much hard work and dedication from EVERYONE to make this a success- you are appreciated!

Staff Spotlight

This week we spotlight Carrie Polk, Data Queen Extraordinaire! Carrie has taught both elementary and middle school levels in a variety of school settings. She began with Mosaica in 2008, and now we are fortunate enough to have her with us at Mercury:) She lives in New Mexico with her husband, two children, one dog, and four chickens (oh my!).

Thank you Carrie - we look forward to all you will be offering Mercury this year through Alpine Achievement and the Performance/Achievement Series - we know with Carrie's leadership in this area we will take our students to a higher level.


Don't forget to notify Julie Floyd with any news happening within our Mercury family- whether it be good news or not so good news, we want to support our group. Email Julie with births, marriages, sickness, death... anything that is impacting our Mercury family so that we can be sure to show our love and support as appropriate.

...And for Our First Bit of Sunshine News...

Paula Galland became a grandmother (for the 3rd time!) this week with the birth of Brogen Gregg Galland - 21 1/2 inches - 8 pounds 13 ounces. Congratulations Paula!

Also, we extend sympathy to Maria Savoldi and her family on the passing of her father this week.

Update to our Who's Who at Mercury!

See the updated document that Julie emailed you today with a few minor changes:)

Our Students are CHAMPS!

Just a reminder for all teachers to incorporate CHAMPS into your classroom positive behavior support plan. When students are aware of expectations up front and there is clarity and purpose in the assignment, it is amazing what they can accomplish.
