Admin Connection

The Administrator's Connection contains information for school and central administrators. Please see the current posting below which may include required action, required reading, deadlines and opportunities.

Admin Connection for June 30, 2015

Information for school and central administrators:

This administrative webpage will be the primary communication tool from district leadership. Occasionally, there could be a change in venue, date, or time of an event or meeting. When these or similar pieces of information need to be conveyed quickly, group e-mails will most likely be sent out. However, the number of these should be limited. School and district administrators are expected to view the Admin Connection every Tuesday (on Wednesday on weeks when the district is closed on Monday). Thank you and do not hesitate to notify us (admin-connection@pps.net) if you have suggestions for improvement of this tool.

OPPORTUNITIES AND HELPFUL HINTS

KIDS RIDING BIKES

The Kids Riding Bikes program is an interactive cycling program that uses computerized stationary bikes to promote health, fitness and wellness and integrates into your existing PE or Health class. The program is designed for youth ages 8-18 and takes place one day a week for four weeks.

There is no cost to your school to host the program.

"Vernon School is committed to including movement throughout the day for our students. When Charlie Warner approached us about Kids Riding Bikes Program, I thought it was a wonderful connection to our May Bike to School Program and a unique movement experience for our students. The feedback from students has been all positive. They love watching their progress on the giant TV. Nine 13 Sports NW has been wonderful to work with. I wholeheartedly recommend this program."
-Melissa Schachner, Assistant Principal
