What will you celebrate?

So, we've reached the first full week of school.  What will you celebrate?  Here's what I'm celebrating.

  • Three successful Family Information Nights (Thanks, teams!)
  • A Principal Chat with Mike, the PTO, and lots of families
  • Classroom visits with Voxer feedback for all teachers
  • Respectful and cooperative students
  • Rich conversations with staff about kids and curriculum
  • The humidity has broken!
  • Mike and I had an awesome assembly with all the kids on Wednesday
  • Intense, important, and honest team meetings
  • Most of all, you are putting the kids first!
I'd love to hear from you about your celebrations.  We sure have a lot to celebrate!

Congratulations on the first full week of school!  Do me a favor and think back about the week.  If someone asked you today, and it might be me, what the best part about the week was for you, what would it be?  What is that one thing?  Find someone to share that one thing with today.
Be the one!
Take care of the kids.  Take care of each other.  Take care of yourself.
