As we conclude the first marking period, I would like to share some quotes that I have been reflecting on to help me stay focused on increasing student achievement amidst all the changes we are working through in public education:

November 1st - End of Marking Period 1 November 1st Coffee orders due November 3rd - Daylight Savings Time Ends- Set your clocks back! November 5th - Election Day November 11th Veterans Day NO SCHOOL November 14th - Parent/Teacher Conferences - 11:30 am Dismissal November 15th Winter Fun Night Basket Raffle Donations Due November 15thPopcorn Day November 19th - Parent/Teacher Conferences - 11:30 am Dismissal November 22th - Parent/Teacher Conferences - 11:30 am Dismissal November 26th Picture Re-takes November 27th-29th Thanksgiving Recess NO SCHOOL

The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance. ~Alan Watts It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad. ~C. S. Lewis When you rise in the morning, give thanks for the light, for your life, for your strength. Give thanks for your food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason to give thanks, the fault lies in yourself. ~ Tecumseh [Just because Thanksgiving is coming . . .] It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change. ~ Charles Darwin If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude. ~ Maya Angelou ** This is the web address for parent resources and information about the Common Core Curriculum modules that the Oneida City School District has adopted. Our Lost and Found table is quickly accumulating student possessions. Please be sure to label your childs clothing, jackets, sweatshirts and lunch pails. We make every effort to return items when we know who they belong to!
