What is the Principal Reading?




For kids:   What is going on in the sleepy town of Serenity? Check out Masterminds by Gordon Korman, I just started it and I'm hooked!  I also recommend reading Newbery Medal and Honor Books, you'll be glad you did! 



World According to Rogers Book
For Adults
: The World According to Mister Rogers was given to me as a gift last year. It sat on my desk-like many of us I thought I new Mr. Rogers. Over the summer I took a new look. His laser focus on kindness and valuing each person is a great resource during these tumultuous times. 

For Adults Part 2: Our professional culture continues to be anchored to many of the principles found in Dare to Lead by Brene Brown and other leadership texts. 



 

October 2021


MESSAGE FROM MR. I:

 

Leadership matters. You may have noticed our 5th grade line leaders around campus. Look for other leadership opportunities to pop up, from Peer Mentors, Student Council, Book Buddies and “Music Mornings.” Our kids will help us solve problems around the school. We focus on the strengths of staff and students alike, and I found this recent article helpful: Four Clues to kids' strengths.

 

Safety starts with a united community, which was on display at our Raccoon Run last week. Our PTA and teachers stepped up, as did the Town of Morrison, West Metro Fire, 

Colorado Rangers and local merchants. It does take a village and we are grateful to you all. This month we will engage in our annual lockdown drill with kids. Our motto is “prepared, not scared.” New families may have questions about the drill and you are welcome to contact me directly regarding our safety protocols. Speaking of safety, we have many kids here unsupervised early. Please don’t drop before supervision starts. 

 

October is a great month to be at Red Rocks!  


Go Raccoons! —Mr. I
