If there's one thing I'm consistently reminded of as an educator, is that every moment matters. Every single moment.
That's why so often you hear the phrases like "teach bell to bell" or "pay attention to the details" or things like that. We are only given a limited amount of time with each other and it's so important that we take advantage of every moment. Especially when we are a school, with students, who have many gains to make!
This week I challenge you to find ways to take advantage of more "moments", and then celebrate those accomplishments! Little moments can very quickly add up to big events!

These assignments are ONLY for those who have TP that morning. Not the entire team.
Monday - 1st Grade
Tuesday - 4th Grade
Wednesday - 1st Grade
Thursday - 4th Grade
On Friday 5th grade will stay at 7:35am for their Camp Time (due to House Games). So 5th Grade team will need to serve morning duty that morning.
Positively Positive by our own Sue Ambrus
Every day we're given a choice. We can allow our circumstances to define our attitude or we can "leave it in the car" and bring the best to our kiddos. We have to remember that we were hired to educate these kiddos and bring our best despite things going on in our own lives. It's tough and often we wish we could take a little break, but that's why it is soooo important to lean on each other in times of need. TOGETHER we can do this!
