Contest Time! If You're Thankful and you Know It...

It's that time of year again, when we all come together with friends and/or family, eat a mess of delicious food and give thanks for all the blessings in our lives. So what better opportunity to also take a moment and acknowledge a teacher?

It's that time of year again, when we all come together with friends and/or family, eat a mess of delicious food and give thanks for all the blessings in our lives. So what better opportunity to also take a moment and acknowledge a teacher?

Almost everyone has that special teacher whom they've never forgotten--the one who went the extra mile, helped you find your special talents or otherwise changed your life, even in some small way. Let's recognize those exceptional individuals!

We have put together a little contest that will begin Monday, November 6 and close on Sunday, November 12. We will then randomly draw a winner on Monday, November 13. Here are the deets:

  • Think of that educator who made a difference in your life.
  • We will create a Facebook post specifically for this contest on November 6. Leave a comment on that post with a description of the teacher and why he or she made such an impact on your life. Make sure to tag that teacher (if he/she is not on Facebook, make sure you have a way to contact that person!).
  • After the contest closes on Sunday, November 12, we will randomly pick a winner.
  • The prize? You and the teacher you nominate will both receive a free 60-minute float session (each worth $60) to The Float Spa at Classen Curve! Who could use a relaxing bit of quiet time? I bet you could!

So don't delay. This contest won't last long, and we are excited to help celebrate and recognize all those educators who go above and beyond.

What's Your District's Social Media Stance?

I get it. Opening up social media sites on your district’s network can be scary and overwhelming, especially with the constant reports about online bullying and inappropriate communication between educators and students. But what is equally concerning to me is knowing that our students use unrestricted social media and other communication tools anyway, many without supervision, guidance and no understanding of their content’s ramifications.

Doing What We Can to Help All Children Reach Their Potential

We have all had those students who ranked somewhere on the autism spectrum, but did we do all we could to help them reach their potential? I have to admit I was ill-equipped and probably still am, but after reading an article in this week’s Parade magazine, Movie Magic by Nicola Bridges, my heart was warmed with promise.
