 Dear McCulloch Families,
     Thanks to everyone that made it to Parent Teacher conferences. We love getting to celebrate your child. A school-parent connection is so important in your child's school journey.

We will  We will be sending some information home in the near future for you to talk about with your student about possible choices for Student Leadership Teams. New teams will start November 30.  Please mark February 22 on your calendars as this will be our McCulloch Leader Day to celebrate our Leader in Me journey.

Tiger Time
Each day, Tuesday-Thursday from 2:50-3:20 p.m., McCulloch Leaders will receive direct instruction on the skills they need to grow as a learner. All staff will support our learners, including aides, special teachers, counselors, and administrators. Your child may rotate to different classrooms to receive this support. It is very important that our leaders stay until dismissal time to access this additional support. We are looking forward to this continued opportunity for all of our learners.
"Leadership is communicating others' worth and potential so clearly that they are inspired to see it in themselves."
~Stephen Covey

Thanks to our Tiger Troop and McCulloch Leaders and families, we collected 1021 pairs of socks for People Helping People and our community.
