November 3, 2014
Happy November! Before I forget- many thanks to Rebecca Johnson and the PA and all volunteers for once again managing to make PS126/MAT Halloween spooky and creepy and fun!
District 2 has a new superintendent- Bonnie Laboy. Our outgoing superintendent, Mariano Guzman, who was a good friend to our school, was asked to work on the Chancellor’s team. Bonnie visited our school last week, after school, and spent some time talking to Carlos, Robin, and me. Her first comment says so much about our school- she said it felt like a HAPPY PLACE! And that was even without your wonderful children filling our halls and classrooms with their voices and questions and laughter and ideas! The good energy of your children must linger in the halls- why else would she feel that vibe?
Even on the days when some children may not be on their best behavior, or when news from the DOE is a bit perplexing, or when we, as a staff, feel that it is sometimes a challenge to move along all of our children- even on those days- it is so easy to turn a corner, sit with a child, peer into a classroom, learn from a colleague in the class next door- and be reminded of what a special and HAPPY PLACE we have here at PS126/MAT.
