We had guests this morning to deliver a message about kindness and anti-bullying. Miss New Hampshire High, Anna Claire Hay, had student volunteers race to squeeze the toothpaste out of the toothpaste tubes. Then they had to try to put the toothpaste back in. Not so easy. The point was that when we say unkind words, it’s not so easy to take them back and make it right. Also, she taught us about being brave...b-build, r-relationships, a-and, v-value, e-everyone.

Can you believe it’s November already? Please mark your calendars for our Thanksgiving break. Since we will have a full week off for Thanksgiving, let’s strive to make this a “no miss” November and not miss a single day of school so we can continue to grow our learning to great levels. Happy November!

Dear Tyson School Family, I wanted to share with you all that I got to go to Washington DC last week to be honored and recognized as a National Distinguished Principal! Wow! What an honor that I will never forget. I got to meet 60 other National Distinguished Principals from across our country, got to meet people like US Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos and others from the US Dept of Education, and many other awesome experiences. But to be honest, I feel that this is OUR award and recognition! It takes all of us working together to be the best we can be for our students and all of our school family. Thank you for your continued support and partnership. I will write more about this experience soon, but wanted to share this experience with you now as I am so proud of all of us and proud to be a Tyson Tiger. Thank you again. Shelly Poage, Proud Principal
