Dear Rejuvenated RES Staff,


I hope your spring break was all you wished for and more!  Mine has been busy, but I finished 4 of my 5 classes, so that's a relief!  My last one this semester is Sat., May 5, so there's light at the end of my grad. school tunnel!

Dear Hardworking RES Staff,

What a surprise that snow was Friday afternoon!   Spring is working hard to arrive, looks like we'll have a warm spring break as the temps are supposed to hit 50 by the end of the week!  There will be no blog next Sunday since it will be spring break!  The next blog will be published Sun., April 22.

Though many of us welcome a "break," some students do not.  Please keep that in mind this week and perhaps review your class behavior expectations.  We are all tired and stressed, so remember to breathe and take a moment so you respond rather than react particularly this week.

Dear Talented RES Staff,

Hope we've all caught up from Daylight Savings Time and 2 hr. delays!  I recently saw this image and wanted to share it with each of you.  At any given moment a child is reaching for all of these things and trying to avoid the others.  Our job is to help "belay" and support them in your classrooms daily.    As professionals, you all have the ability to do that and I commend you for your efforts!
