Tips for Starting the New School Year

As both a teacher and principal I recognized the importance of starting the school year on a positive note. These beginnings say a lot about your school's culture and the relationships you want to build with students, families and staff. I'm always looking for good ideas that I can use or that I can share with my teachers. This week I received an online post from Edutopia (from the George Lucas Educational Foundation) that describes 9 tips for starting the new school year. They emphasize collaborative with families, with personnel in your school and with your own Personal Learning Network (PLN). I thought I'd pass them along and hope you find them helpful.

As always I'd enjoy hearing from you about other tips you have for starting the new school year on a positive note.
