Welcome back! I hope your Thanksgiving Break was a restful and rejuvenating one, and I’m looking forward to a busy four week stretch to Winter Break. Students received their new sections and Skills classes this morning, and we are excited for a great next phase of the year.
A couple of reminders for you as we wrap up November and head toward December. First, if you are interested, a reminder that Tim and I will be hosting a discussion about technology and its role in our students’ lives through the vehicle of the book iGen: Why Today’s Super Connected Kids Are Growing Up Less Rebellious, More Tolerant, Less Happy—and Completely Unprepared for Adulthood—and What That Means for the Rest of Us by Dr. Jean Twenge. Whether you have the chance to read the book or not, I hope you’ll join us for a discussion at 6:30 pm on Sunday, Dec. 2 in the ballroom. We’ll have some small nibbles and drinks for everyone, and if you’re able, please bring something small for people to share. Thanks to those of you who have already RSVP’d, and if you haven’t already, please do so by emailing me directly.
Additionally, our Learning Center team will host a coffee in Taryn’s office next Monday, Dec. 3 from 8:15-9:15 am to discuss their work and the differentiation, co-teaching, and co-planning they have been engaged with. Come join Brittany McKenna, Susan Cleveland, Angelina Nicol, and Taryn Steil to discuss the role of the Learning Center team and its support of all learners.
Thank you again for all your support, and I look forward to a continued great year and a wonderful start to the winter trimester! Have a great week!
