HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!!
HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!!
The topic of stress and anxiety in high schools continues to be at the forefront. To support May being mental health awareness month we are hosting an evening of information on May 23rd, in our middle school. Please see the alerts from your school and the district for additional information. I have also included a link to some articles related to mental health.
This is a wonderful time during the school year filled with warmer weather and lots of celebrations for successful accomplishments, proms, championships, etc. Regardless of the number of years I have been watching your children ~ our students~ participate in these events, it never loses its charm. Watching them live through experiences that will become lifelong memories is one of the priceless things about being an educator.
We so appreciate you sharing your children with us and I know we agree that we want all of those celebrations to be memorable and safe. To that end, our Morris County Prosecutor, Mr. Frederick Knapp has shared a letter that is attached~ Prosecutor’s Letter
We are all looking forward to a terrific end to this school year and I think I can safely say we are out of the snow season (hopefully I didn’t jinx anything :-)!)
55 days and counting!
This article in Campus Safety magazine was recently shared with me and provides some additional information with regard to vaping ~ click here
The RHS instructional coaches allowed their principal co-worker to team up with them to present at the national ASCD conference in Boston. The selection process started a year ago with an application and ended with a session attended by over 150 teachers, coaches and administrators who came to hear about redefining school success through transformational coaching. This interactive session described the now successful program from the beginning stages and included multiple ways for the attendees to continue to interact with us. Many schools expressed an interest in visiting our program from states all over the country.
This instructional coaching growth model continues to be at the forefront of non evaluative coaching programs. The success is directly attributed to our coaches and I could not be more impressed by their continued dedication to enhancing classroom practices.
Bruce and Ellen Eisenberg, founders of the Pennsylvania Institute of Instructional Coaching and authors of “Instructional Coaching in Action” attended the presentation which was quite an honor. They have been instrumental in assisting our coaches with starting the coaching program at RHS.
Off to dinner…
