Week in Review!

  • On Monday and Tuesday, Residency Lab teachers and instructional coaches hosted Frontier’s first Residency Lab.  This work is a continuation of our work with Sam Bennett last year.  This session’s first two hosts – Dustin Allen and Kristie Brookes – shared their classroom space as we thought about Workshop planning, instructional practices, and implications for our own practice.
  • On Thursday, the ASB Council held its first Social of the year.  Congrats to the kids for their planning and hard work.  A special shout out to our staff members that were helping out!


Welcome to Our New Sunshine Committee!


The Sunshine committee is back and is led of the following individuals – Kristie Neshyba, Tracy Rupprecht, Andrew Lovin and Jennifer Ferguson.

For those new to the building or those needing a reminder, the Sunshine Committee brings sunshine and happiness into the workplace for a variety of reasons – they provide gifts and cards to members of our “Frontier Family” when they’re facing some of life’s challenges as well as celebrating milestones such as births, retirement and weddings.  Sunshine also pays for some of the staff lunches during the year and organizes social events.  Contributions from staff are the only way to make this possible.  Last week, envelopes were placed in mailboxes soliciting your contribution.  Please return your contribution to Jennifer Ferguson to ensure that our Sunshine keeps shining!

The Sunshine Committee would also like to use the blog to note upcoming birthdays.  We are a bit late to the game on this, but want to recognize the past two months as a nod to our wonderful staff!

Finally, the Sunshine Committee will be sending out a survey for all staff to complete, which will help inform the committee of areas of interest.  This will be a Google form.  Be on the lookout and PLEASE COMPLETE IT!

Monday Motivation

Teachers – here is a video that is both in honor of the NBA season starting and my love for Kid Snippets.  In truth, the message is simple but true – believe in yourself!
