Happy Friday!I am pleased to share that our students have earned another All-School PAWS Celebration.Yesterday at lunch students were able to vote on their desired celebration.The results indicated that students would like to have a Mannequin Challenge.I think this will be a first for MCS.I anticipate that you will see photos of this challenge in next week’s newsletter.It is wonderful to see that students value our school-wide expectations.Celebrating our successes together will be fun.
I had an opportunity to talk with the bus drivers this morning. We will be reminding students of PAWS on the bus. Parents, if you would please review these expectations with your child that would be very helpful as well. Bus drivers distribute “cat coins” too!
On Monday our staff will be engaged with in-service activities. Our K-2 teachers will be working with ANESU coach Caroline Patrie on Science curriculum. Julie Conrad, our ANESU Math Coach, will be working with grade 3-4 teachers on math content. Grade 5-6 teachers will be focused on comprehension strategies. In the afternoon all Monkton teachers will be here engaged in collaborative planning. We appreciate the opportunity to have this time for our professional growth.
