Rim of the World Unified has three priorities
1. Increase student learning and support professional development.
2. Facilitate safe and positive school climate.
3. Engage families and the community.
On Friday, November 1st our team focused on priorities 1 and 2 during the all staff Professional Development Day. Teachers and administrators came together to learn about how intentional social, emotional, and academic learning can boost achievement, behavior and climate. Skills such as self-management, self-awareness, relationship skills, responsible decision making, and social awareness are vital life skills that foster success. One of the quotes from the day, “How do you change the world? One room at a time, which room? The one you’re in! Be the change you wish to see in the world”. Happy Veteran’s Day to ALL who have served our country.

Fun Fridays at LAE
The playground at LAE is always a fun place to be but this year the playground staff have stepped it up with Fun Fridays. As a reward for positive behavior, at the end of the week, staff brings out music at lunchtime on the grass. Hula hoops, jump ropes, bowling and even bubbles and other fun games are included. The kids and staff can dance and sing to their favorites. The kids never get tired of Baby Shark, Frozen, YMCA and the new favorite Old Town Road.
“It is a great way to reward our students at the end of the week for working hard, being safe, responsible and respectful. It just makes for a fun time and everyone looks forward to it,” said Principal Veronica McGilvery.
Third graders Charlotte and Emma said they look forward to Fridays. They want to dance, request their favorite songs and have fun with friends.
Fun Fridays are here to stay at LAE! Come out and dance with us!
