A&Wesome Staff!

Good morning, it is Thursday.

It has been an interesting time at school this lasts week and a half.  Missing a whole week due to snow and power outages has really put stress on the calendar.  Missed programs such as Young Author's Night and the Tech Expo are being rescheduled (Young Author's Night is tonight), assessments are being given and report cards are being compiled.  Without the week off this would be a stressful time.  Add to that stress, our school is totally under the microscope, enduring random classroom visits and observations by KSD administration trying to make sure everything possible is being done to bring up test scores.  And if that isn't enough, throw on top of all that the rumors (or fact depending on who you talk to) that our school will be closed down at the end of the year and folks may not have jobs.    
Luckily our CV staff is made up of folks who are very caring, professional, and awesome people. And that includes the PTA of which we are all in the same boat.  Check out this very cool display the PTA put up in our staff room.  As deadlines pass, random visits slow down, and the future of the school is actually decided, things will get back to a more normal, relaxed, and friendly environment...and that, I think, will ultimately help our students the most.

See you tomorrow.
