A staff can make or break a school. This is my first year at RMS and let me tell you, this staff 'makes' this school. Not only are we working to improve our school at all times for the kids, we are also working to create and build on relationships as coworkers. Here is just one example.
We have four different lunch shifts at our school. I was switched to a new lunch this last quarter. I was a bit sad because the lunch I was eating with are my friends, my support group at a new school. We are only 4 weeks into the new schedule and I have been welcomed in with open arms to a new lunch. I learn about my new lunch buddies personalities, hear what they are doing in their classes, and yes, even make cupcakes together. Apparently this group loves 'friendly' competition so we recently had a CUPCAKE WAR. What a fun activity. Lots of amazing cupcakes! Check out the fun I had with such a great group of people.
The winner!!! Leuer Moose!

Every Friday at my school the staff plays volleyball from 2 to 3 (during our hour planning). It is a great way to hang out with each other and let off some steam.
What a great way to bond. Our district does a simular event where we meet after school hours and play volleyball against the other schools. We have 9 elementary schools and RES (my old school) was always 2nd place... AHHH! That darn Twin Lakes Elementary:)
Fabulous cupcakes, but I'm confused - you have time do do this during the school day??
OH no!!! We decided in our 1/2 hour lunch on Monday that we should do this activities. We all made these cupcakes outside of school and brought them in on Friday. That was the 'real' fun... no on had a clue what each other was bringing.
