Thursday, August 30, 2012

Happy Thursday.  Please keep Mr. Holmes in your prayers today as he will undergo cataract surgery in one eye today. He will be back on Tuesday.  I will be opening the bldg. at 6:00 each morning.

Are you interested in taking a Zumba class here at Diggs-Latham once a week?  The Y will offer our staff a weekly class on Mondays (3:15-4:00 or so)  for $2 a week.  Right now they are determining interest. .  I will put a sign up sheet in the lounge, if you are interested, sign up and I will pass the information on to Bonita Patton.  I will then let you know if and when the classes will start.  The instructor will be from the Y.

Some Things to Ponder:
  • Treat everyone with dignity and respect.  
  • Know how your children are getting to and from school.
  • Never give a child to someone you don't know to be taken home, always call the office for verification.  It only takes a minute to check.  If someone does come to your door at the end of the day and has not signed in at the office, send them to the office for a badge.  Safety first! 
  • Be on time (lunch, specials, dismissal  everywhere)
  • Know your children's names.
  • Be clear with communication between school and home.
  • Remember this is the beginning.  If you set a positive tone and are consistent and pervasive  in your expectations for the first thirty days, Habits will be built that will last for the 150 days to follow.
  Be aware and  be.responsive to all forms of bullying.
Cheryl and I have been very visible this week and will continue to do so.  We have helped out in the cafeteria. We were backed up a bit yesterday due to the fact that we had all kindergartens here, not just 2 classes. Make sure kids have their numbers or you have your roster.  This will speed things up.  If you do not have a AM duty and are able, please join us in the cafeteria to help supervise breakfast and hallways.  

Challenge our students academically and create some differentiated assessments to build confidence in all students.  Thanks for all of your hard work.
