Monday AM Notes, February 28 2022

Greetings All!
I hope you had a fantastic weekend. Michelle and I stole away to Portland for the night to see a concert and enjoy the city life-we saw a great show, ate lots of tasty food, and soaked up the city vibe! Here’s a snippet of the concert (KALEO), a rocking harmonica solo:


The results of the YouthTruth survey (filled out by staff and families) were recently shared with me, and along with lots of super positive comments, the following comment was shared by a parent and I really wanted to share it with you. Priceless!

I dropped out of school in 11th grade, no longer challenged and feeling like my potential and creativity was being caged. Today, I consider myself successful and find myself in a very fortunate place in my life’s journey. That said, if I could go back and do it over, I would want to start off at Amity Creek. I believe the skills that are being taught and learned at Amity would have given me a more substantial and well rounded foundation and I believe I could have experienced a more joyful experience in life with more tools and people skills to achieve the goals I have set for myself.

A few notes to get you going:
1) It’s show time this Wednesday! Our in-person school information night starts at 5:30pm and it would be great if everyone was here at school by 5:15pm. I always look forward to this evening of sharing with perspective parents!

As you begin thinking about what you plan to share at the meeting here is the list of what each person signed up for:
What Amity Means-Jill
History of Amity Creek—Lindsey
Community Time—Ray
Cross Age Learning, Olders and Youngers—Lauren
Invitations, Camp Amity, Community Garden—Frans
Connections with Parents: Volunteering, Café Amity-Lindsey
Celebrating the Journey—Jill
Kinder Program—Lindsey
Outdoor Education—Andy
Our Personal Whys/Why I love teaching at Amity-Everyone!

Please keep in mind that whether or not you have signed up for something specific, we all have lots to share and each of you should be prepared to share when the moment strikes or inspiration moves you speak.

2) As I mentioned to most of you on Friday I’d like to have a short staff meeting today (Mon) at 2:45. Let’s meet in the staff lounge.

3) Haley is out today. There is a sub covering for her.

4) In order to make the morning attendance and lunch count more efficient and less intrusive please be sure you have the small green slip filled out and ready to hand off to Alanna when she arrives (she and Karima are swapping responsibilities). Most of you have been doing a great job with this–thank you! Our goal is to have 100% of these ready to go so that Alanna can get to the Grade 1 class as quickly as possible.

5) HUGE thanks to Lauren and the first grade for the wonderful community time last Friday! The plan is to keep doing Fridays at 1:30pm until we are ready to do it more often. At this point no one has stepped forward to do this Friday-do we have a volunteer? Please let me know by the end of the day Monday. We’ll take volunteers for the next few weeks and then we can start committing to a regular schedule.

6) We have warmer temperatures this week, but the forecast is also showing rain nearly every day. Let’s continue to offer students the opportunity to stay inside during recess when possible. It would be very helpful if you would spend a few minutes to clarify with students that when they stay in they need to stay in the classroom and not roam around. We’re still not quite ready to lift all the mitigation efforts in place. ALSO, a few minutes before the end of recess it’s a good idea to get all the students out of the classroom for some fresh air when you head out to pick up students on the playground. Please don’t leave a classroom full of students unattended.

7) I will be away from school Thursday and Friday. If you need help or there is an emergency please reach out to Sara. Big thanks to Sara for being willing to be the go-to while I am away!
