Adventurous Challenge of the MONTH:

December: I am continuing the challenge for us as a school to make morning greeting a priority.  Either a teacher or a student greeting all kids every morning.  It starts the morning with love and connection.

A new study finds that greeting students at the door increases engagement by 20% and reduces disruptions by 9%—effectively adding 1 hour of learning per day.
