Dear Parents and Guardians,
Well, we have made it through almost a full week of school and it was a busy one! I am confident that it is going to be GREAT! Our new faculty and support staff are working hard and with the cooperation of our veteran personnel, we are building an amazing team.

This fall will be super crazy for me. I have a niece playing college volleyball, so I want to attend as many games as possible. I have a nephew getting married in two weeks in Maine. In October, I will officiate my godchild’s wedding! Emily, my godchild, said “Aunt Ann, you did such a nice job with the eulogies for your aunt and uncle, do you want to do a fun event and marry me?” With that delivery what else could I say but, “Sure Em, I am honored and would love to do it.” Besides these personal things, I have 20 students joining me each Friday after school for my kickball intramural program. As a district, we are learning a new student information software program which should be ready to roll out in the beginning of November and we are implementing a competency-based report card. I was also selected for jury duty, which starts Tuesday.

Some highlights from my week:
 A student sharing with me in the hallway, “I just love this school and don’t want to go anywhere when I get older.”
 Going into a classroom during my daily informal walk-throughs, seeing all students partnered up and having amazing math discussions on how to solve a word problem.
 Our 2nd and 5th grade students giving their best effort on their fall NWEA testing.
 Watching a kindergarten student waiting anxiously for his new first grade friend to come out to recess so that they could play together.
 On morning bus duty, seeing two sisters skip into school with huge smiles on their faces!
 The start of our amazing Project Promise (after school) program. Unfortunately, we already have a waiting list! As more staff are hired we will be inviting more students to join.

What are your highlights from your week? Do you share them with your family and friends? Instead of asking your child, “How was your day?” how about trying these…it is our hope you will get a more in-depth response:
 What was your peak (best) and pit (worst) of your day?
 Did you catch anyone doing something funny?
 Did anyone do anything super nice to you or for a classmate today?
 If one of your classmates could be the teacher for the day, who would you want it to be? Why?
 What rule was the hardest to follow today?
 Who made you smile today?

Have a great weekend and gear up for a full week of school.
