MOMS are everywhere

In order to help with our overall organization and homework we have recruited some MOMs. MOM stands for Motivational Organizational Managers. Students who are struggling to get their homework turned in or they are having difficulty managing their papers once they are returned will be assigned a MOM. So far we have two MOMs that have stepped up to make sure that everyone has what they need. MOMs will check their charges backpack to make sure that they have all that they need at the end of the day. They will also turn their homework in to their MOM in the morning and their MOM will make sure that they receive credit for it. Once a student has completed an entire week's work of homework and all papers are in place they will only have to check in with MOM twice a week. At that time they will regain their independence.

Star Gazing

Well it's hard to believe that we have been back from Outdoor Ed and trying to get back to normal routines. That part has been a little difficult. It didn't help that we came back to a week of minimum days for parent conferences.

We have had to put some of our fall themes aside :( for a while.

Thursday night Cerro Villa sponsored a "Star Gazing" night and it was a lot of fun. It was great to see so many former students doing well at the next level. Keep up the good work. I miss you guys.
