Thank YOU!

Thank you to all of the wonderful Dads who were able to attend Donuts with Dads this morning! We look forward to having you come read to our class very soon! If you were unable to attend this morning but would still like to come read, please let me know and we'll find a time that works.

Plan, Do, Study, Act

Several times during the school year, our class works together to develop a plan to improve in a particular area. The students work together to brainstorm areas that we may be able to improve, we decide how we will improve, how we will track our data, and what our reward will be when we meet our goal. Below you will see a picture of the "Plan, Do, Study, Act" that we developed this week in order to help us ensure that we're being great leaders and moving our sticks up on our behavior chart every day. We will work on this throughout the month of January and see who earned their reward at the end of the month, then begin again in February.

Join your Line Creek friends on Friday, January 23rd for Family Movie Night! PTA will be hosting this event and showing the movie "Monsters, Inc." Please see the attached flyer to learn more!

Hats off to a New Year!

This week, we enjoyed Beginning with the End in Mind by setting goals for the new year. We talked about what habits we could become better at using and how we could do so. Here are some of the students' responses:

"I will Synergize by helping my mom cook when she needs help every time." -Alesziah

"I will Put First Things First by cleaning my bookshelf then playing my Xbox." -Noah

"I will Think Win-Win by doing what Bailee wants to do then we can do what I want to do." -Kaitlyn
