My goodness...there's SO much going on right now. We had a staff meeting yesterday and everyone left feeling more deflated than before. We knew it wasn't going to be a positive meeting when my principal started out by saying, "Please don't shoot the messenger! This is coming from the D.O." She didn't really need to say that, though, because we all knew that the things she was sharing were coming from the top. When we had our grade-level meeting, people seemed short-tempered and snappy with each other. That's really not the norm for us. I guess we all just have a lot on our plates right now (they're overflowing, actually). How's your staff doing?
