December 8

Congrats- Congratulations to Kevin, Rochelle and Julie. Great moves for all three of them and great for the schools involved. We know the new school will get off to a fantastic start with Kevin’s leadership. We also know that Pine Ridge and Rosland will continue the amazing work they have been doing with Rochelle and Julie taking over. Finally, welcome to the elementary world, Julie! You’re going to love it!

Outdoor School- I have heard that we may know very soon how much $ we will be getting from the state for outdoor school. In the meantime, Tamarack will be sending all invoices to Wendy Reeves. Once we know how much the state will be paying, we will figure out how much each school owes and Wendy will work with your office managers to take care of payment.

In addition, Charlie at Tamarack may be reaching out to you to offer some pre and post lessons for students attending outdoor school. The lessons would prepare and review information learned at outdoor school and would take place at your school and be provided by Tamarack employees. The cost is free. You don’t need to do anything right now, but I wanted you to know that Charlie may be contacting you and it is AOK to proceed if you want. No obligation.

Mini observations- I have one more reminder regarding mini observations. Please be sure to check off the observation in Talent Ed as you do them or as regularly as possible. Thank you.
