The Principal's Corner: April 22nd - 26th

“Growth is actually contagious, so if you want to reach your goals, you’ve got to get around people who are going in the same direction you want to be going, and you will catch the success.” —Dr. Henry Cloud

I absolutely agree. Let us get moving in the same direction. No more excuses, no more obstacles, no more fear, and no more I can't. Together we can! Together we win!

CEL to Ponder:

SE1   Student Engagement – Intellectual Work: Quality of questioning 

   Teacher frequently asks questions to probe and deepen students’ understanding or uncover misconceptions. The teacher assists students in clarifying and assessing their thinking with one another. Students question one another to probe for deeper thinking. 

 A Little Humor:

-What's orange and sounds like a parrot? A carrot. -Did you hear about the Italian chef that died? He pasta way. -Why couldn't the bicycle stand up? Because it was two tired! -Parallel lines have so much in common. It’s a shame they’ll never meet. -On the 7th day, God rested ... Chuck Norris took over.
