The ANESU leadership team, comprised of ANESU school and central office administrators, using input gathered from faculty and staff on opening day, Relationship By Objective documents, the ANESU vision, mission and Ends, have drafted four strategic goal statements. Please take a moment to offer some feedback. The leadership team will consider the feedback they receive and create a second draft of these goals. The second draft will then be submitted to the Strategic Plan Steering Committee for adoption. Once adopted, each goal will have an action team assigned to it to develop objectives, action steps, timeline and metrics. Thanks for sharing your feedback!

2/13/17 Joint Statement Regarding Negotiations
Our sessions continue to be respectful and collaborative. The tone of the work group is very positive, leading to productive dialogue. We have discussed many non-economic issues such as clarifying contract language. On March 9 we will have a joint informational session with the ESP bargaining group with VEHI representatives Mark Hage and Laura Soares presenting information about health care changes and options. March 9 is a public meeting at Bristol Elementary School at 6:00 and all are welcome to attend.

I hope families are enjoying the snow as much as I am.We have had fun at recess playing in this “white gold.”Of course the shoveling and snow blowing that has to happen at home aren’t always quite as fun!
On Thursday we had a special presentation by our Kindergarten friends. It was wonderful to see so many parents here to enjoy the fairy tales. Thank you to Ms. Lynch and Ms. Kuzio for providing us with this opportunity to see these actors and actresses shine!
Also on Thursday students received information about the Read-A-Thon. Please check your child’s backpack for the Read-a-Thon details. Many families use the vacation time to arrange for sponsors. Should a child not have a sponsor, we have several MCS staff members who are willing to fulfill this role. This Read-a-Thon generates several thousand dollars for our Monkton PTO. So amazing!
Today we had another school-wide celebration to recognize students for demonstrating our PAWS expectations. All K-6 students ate lunch together, picnic style, in the cafeteria. We had a chance to view our Mannequin Challenge video while we ate. Then all 150 students went outside together to play in the snow. I know I truly enjoyed this school-wide event.
