Last week our teachers spent two days at professional development.  They could hardly contain their excitement at lunch both days.  They were buzzing about all the new faith and tech ideas they were collecting.  Their energy was contagious they were collaborating and making plans for things they wanted to implement at St. Malachy.  Through conversations, since we returned, teachers are already trying new ideas.  Miss Steinkamp is trying a new program called No Red Ink.  This is a fun interactive program that helps students develop grammar skills.  Mrs. Mitchell is using new resources from the AEA website to add to her small group resource lessons.  I am looking forward to seeing more ideas popping up in the classrooms very soon.

We have many events and activities coming up please take note:

Last week St. Malachy students in grades PK-8 were given the opportunity to choose our PTO shirt design for this school year.  Students took a couple moments out of their class time to vote for their favorite design on our new Chromebooks and iPads.  I am proud to display our design winner here.  Mrs. Lora Pellman of As You Wish Designs will be making these shirts. You will be able to purchase these shirts at the Spaghetti Supper and also place orders at the supper and Parent Teacher Conferences.
