It is great being with our board members at the ISBA/IAPSS Fall Conference today. This is a good annual conference, and it is a good opportunity to connect with each other and build relationships within our team.
I enjoyed having lunch today with NHS senior, Kate Tudor. After graduation, Kate is planning to attend Taylor University to study history. Her career goal is to be an archaeologist. And . . . we both agree that the Crimson House BLT is delicious, but incredibly messy.
We do have some areas of patchy fog this morning around Uniondale and Markle. We are going on time, but will continue to monitor the weather.
Ossian Days are up and running. It was fun to help with the Ossian Revitalization Committee's pork chop dinner again this year!
Reminder: Special Education Focus Group meets tomorrow (Wednesday) at 4PM in NHS Room H200. If your work schedule does not allow you to attend, please reach to Mindy Scheumann (firstname.lastname@example.org) for opportunities to receive information and provide input.
Reminder . . . In addition to Ossian Days this week, there is another important community event is on September 14th. The opioid crisis is real throughout this country and our community is no exception. Awareness is a key to combating the crisis. Hope to see you at this event.
More science solidarity from NHS teachers, Mr. Grzych and Mr. Stinson! I'm starting to see a pattern here.
The fog is definitely thickening, but the sun should help to burn it off as we are opening our elementary schools. We will start our elementary schools on time, but as always parents have the right to make their own judgements. Tardy arrivals will be waived.
We have some patchy fog in our area. We are going on time this morning. We will continue to monitor the fog for our elementary routes. Please allow yourself some extra travel time this morning.
Nice job by our lead principals at last night's school board meeting. Love the coordinated efforts with organizing systemic supports for all students and the unified commitment to raising achievement for all students. Also enjoyed Tuesday's OES staff meeting on this.
Reminder: Tonight's school board meeting is a strategic planning meeting. The meeting starts at 5:30PM in NHS Room H200 with the strategic planning component starting after few business items. All of the meeting will be livestreamed as well.
Norwell Community Schools will be on a 2-hour delay on Monday, August 21st, due to fog.
