This week I experienced one of my most favorite moments thus far in my career. At the sight of Mr. McElhinney and I sitting in the front seat of a car on the large video screen, the 7th graders collectively groaned (with smiles on their faces) at the thought of having to watch our goofy "Don't Stop Believing" video from last year. It was quickly followed by laughter and I told them how great I thought their honest reaction to our old adult humor was then I assured them it was not the same video. If you missed the posting earlier this week and want
to drive them crazy over the long weekend, here is a link to the madness: SB Summer Retreat
In addition to the laughter, the students were reminded of our three priorities...hopefully, they can share with you what they are.
In just a few weeks, you will have the opportunity to attend one of our Curriculum Nights to visit classes and get an overview as to the experiences you can expect students to have in each of their classes. Those events will take place on the following nights: 7th & 8th Grade Curriculum Night-Wednesday, September 13 and the 6th Grade Curriculum Night-Thursday, September 14. More information will be included in next week's update.
Picture Day is scheduled for Friday, September 15...so, if you have run out of small, black unbreakable combs you are in luck. If the Welcome Back, Kotter tune didn't show my age then references to free combs and picture day certainly will.
Make sure the students have a nice relaxing weekend with plenty of rest. Next week we add a day and try to go for four in a row.
Have a wonderful weekend,
