Week of January 8th - January 12th

We are certainly "back in the saddle" at Fossil Ridge after
our first full week of the new year! It was another "Great
Week to be a T-Rex!"  Recently, I had the opportunity to 
attend a training that focused on Classroom Management
and Student Engagement. The training was very well done,
and myself and Mrs. Iverson (Reading Interventionist & 
Learning Coach) returned to Fossil Ridge with some great
information and instructional strategies to ensure high 
levels of learning for ALL students.  On a side note...I sit
in trainings or conferences and feel inadequate, start to
reflect on my own strengths and weaknesses, and realize 
that the pursuit of excellence never ends, we can't ever settle 
for mediocrity. 

Anyway, one of my "take-aways" from this particular training
was the critical important of RELATIONSHIPS.  Nothing in a
school setting will ever be successfully accomplished without
positive relationships.  Education is not about programs or
the newest "fad", its about people.  The greatest joy I see
on a daily basis is the interaction, and relationship building
that goes on between students and teachers, students to 
students, and teacher to teacher. I know that the faculty
and staff at Fossil Ridge sincerely care about our students,
and have built relationships that allow students to feel
important and loved.  I also know that our students 
reciprocate that love, soar higher, and taste more
success because of those relationships. May we all continue
to maintain and foster positive relationships that impact our 
lives for the better. Have a Great Weekend...BE EXCELLENT!
