THE PRINCIPAL CHRONICLES - JOSH MILLER

 

The Principal Chronicles continue ... As I write this I am sitting on the orange couch in the learning commons listening to our staff learn about Thinking Maps. Thinking Maps are a great way for our kids to organize their thinking and will really help with their writing moving into next year. So keep an eye out for your kids to start drawing all kinds of different maps, especially next year.

On a personal note, tonight is my youngest's band concert. She has been squawking and squeaking for a whole year on the clarinet and now she is ready to strut her stuff. Honestly, she is not a big fan of band. I think she doesn't like getting up super early. I get it, we have to leave our house by 6 AM in order to make it to Legend by 6:55. I can't tell you how super fun it has been this year trying to get her up at 5:30 AM.

I think she is ready for the concert and by being ready, I mean she has her dress all picked out. As for her actual musical readiness? That will be a wait and see. Either way, it will be fun to listen to the kids tonight and I'm excited to be a parent for one night.

That is it for this week. See you next time when the Principal Chronicles continues...

Additionally, Sources of Strength— now present in most DCSD high schools and some middle schools— is establishing a healthy culture and climate with the goal of catching youth long before they fall into unhealthy behaviors or consider taking their own lives.

Student Climbs stairs with Firefighters

“Never forget” became permanently ingrained in our heads and our hearts after the attacks of September 11, 2001. But now, 16 years later, our schools are full of students who weren’t even alive when history was made; leaving many teachers to decipher how and what to teach students about a moment in our history that changed our world forever.
