We are very busy preparing for a new school year. Each classroom is getting a new lunch cart as well as new dividers to create multiple learning spaces with the classroom. Staff are engaged in professional learning pertaining to our school improvement plan, incidental teaching, curriculum, functions of behavior, the importance of data, school security, and data privacy. Classroom teams are planning for the school year and setting up classrooms. Students will also be greeted by new signage - our new signs look great! For fun, staff sent us pictures over the summer of their feet showing us where they traveled and the fun they had. Staff are now voting for their favorite picture as well as trying to guess whose feet are whose. It is clear staff enjoyed their time off. We are ready and excited to welcome students on Wednesday!
