Every time I hear this phrase I think of the scene from Christmas vacation when Chevy Chase greases up the metal sled and shoots down the hill.
I seriously laugh out loud every time I think about it. I can’t help but describe our first three weeks of the school year in no other way than “comin’ in hot”!
Today I found myself making mental notes of all the things we have accomplished in 3 short (even though they may have seemed long) weeks of school. In fact, this evening I was driving to a football game with my mom and started listing the things that have happened so far this school year. My mom sat in the passenger seat with her mouth open. She was in complete awe of the stories I shared. I couldn’t help but laugh when I said, “Yep, we came in hot!”
As I continued with my list, not only was I exhausted, but I was also extremely proud. In case you’ve forgotten, here are some things that we’ve accomplished in 14 days:
Red Carpet Clap In
Solar Eclipse viewing
VBO roll out
Teaching 100 kindergartners to eat lunch and go to recess
Welcoming 60 new students
Starting a World Language Program
JW YOUniversity Planning
Mini Data Teams
F and Ps
Welcoming new teachers
Training our Ks to get off the bus and find their classrooms ALONE
RTI tab reviews
iPad Roll Out
R Factor Monday Plans
Biz Town Plans
Data Team Leaders Meeting
Parent phone calls
Tons of new IEPs
And much, much more…
We are a WELL-OILED MACHINE or maybe a better description is that we are a
WELL-GREASED SLED that's COMIN’ IN HOT!
No matter what you call us, I love being part of this team. Thanks for all you do. Take some time to celebrate all the good that has happened for kids in such a short amount of time. Have a great weekend.
Here is your staff update for September 8.
