Monday AM Notes, February 14 2022

Happy Valentine’s Day!
I hope you enjoyed another beautiful weekend. My daughter Arielle and 16- month-old grand daughter Aurelia came for a visit this weekend and it was a real treat!


I heard an interview with Neil deGrasse Tyson (astrophysicist, planetary scientist, author, and science communicator) over the weekend (on Smartless podcast) and he said you should have your mind blown at least once a week. I decided I’m going to help you this week by sharing a few mind-blowing bits of information:
1) Armadillos almost always give birth to identical quadruplets
2) On average, clouds weigh about 1 million pounds
3) Every word used to define a word in the dictionary is in the dictionary. Hmmm…😳

A few notes to get you going:
1) Olympics on Friday starting at noon! Details to be ironed out at our staff meeting. For now you should be working on your event, a team name, and a flag.

2) Staff meeting this Tuesday at 2:45. We’ll use this time to do some Olympic planning, and Sara will give us update about the foundational skills adoption timeline. Also, we’ll check in about starting Buddies again.

We’ll also have a staff meeting next Tuesday, Feb 22 at 2:45. We’ll use the time to plan for the Lottery Information meetings coming up. I would have done this at the SIW on the 23rd but I have to attend a district meeting during the that time.

3) SIW this week is Teacher Prep. Enjoy the time! At the following SIW we will continue to focus on our SEL/Inclusion/Diversity book collection. I am still looking for a volunteer to help host this meeting by sharing a diversity or inclusion book you have read with your class and then lead a discussion. Please let me know if you are willing to do this. Great time to step up!

4) We’re firing up Community Time again! Grade 1 will host next Friday, February 25-thank you Lauren! For now the plan is to do this in the gym. Who will be next? In the coming weeks I’d like to start doing multiple days each week. We’ll see how things are looking and decide when the time feels right.

5) We have a 3 day weekend coming up!
