WELCOME BACK!

To all staff:  Thank you for your hard work and dedication in making our first week back a success.  I appreciate how present and visible you were as our new students acclimated to new territory.  The smiles, handshakes, high-fives and relationship building pay huge dividends as we embark on our work as a learning organization.  Thank you for holding the rope!

Here are a few pictures capturing our journey back to school:

P.S. – If you are a new staff member who is also acclimating to the building, please feel free to ask any of us any questions to help you transition into the school year.  We are here to help!

 

Admin Class Visits

As we have done in past years, Marshall, Ebony and I will be visiting all classrooms in an effort to connect with all students.  Our message is similar as it has been in the past re: talking points, however, we will be emphasizing our shift in the BYOD policy as well as information regarding our Chromebook deployment.  Here is our schedule:

9:50 Khater, Souchex, Smith, T
10:10 Camp, Hepler, Anglebeck

1:50 Godsil, Van Domelen, Gibson
2:10 Kenck, Gordon, Andrade

 

Deployment Update!

First of all, apologies for flooded email inboxes.  My goal is to keep you updated on our device deployment and, since it is a bit of a moving target, those updates happen quite a bit.  Donna Degrenier has been working relentlessly to keep our information up to date and accurate.  We have created processing lists to email our parents, we’ve reached out via multiple live events, and we’ve connected with the kids daily at lunches last week to drive home the importance of getting our forms in.  We are getting there.  Beginning Wednesday, we will follow the deployment schedule below:

  • Wed. 9/6 – Gerken
