WEEK OF October 22nd # 12

● We have a Growth Mindset ● We Keep all Staff & Every Student in Mind ● We Commit & Follow Through ●



  • Shout out to Ms. Cynthia and Coach Chris for demonstrating the core value of keeping all staff and every student in mind when developing activities for Bully Awareness Month, the lessons and activities have benefit all students. It was very thoughtful and respectful of teachers’ time to have everything organized and prepared, it really makes a difference, THANK YOU!
  • SHOUT out to Ms. Bates and Mr. Reggie for demonstrating commitment and follow through as they coach the girls’ basketball team! It is also great to see you out fundraising and raising money for the girls with Jamba Juice!
  • Thank you to the Social Committee for having a growth mindset and coming up with a fun new idea to motivate teachers during Fall with BOO BASKETS! As I walk around campus I see that lots of rooms have been “booed”
  • Shout-out to the 7th grade team for committing and following through by taking close to 100 students and parents to SDSU for the annual Pep Rally! Students and parents could attend breakout sessions on a range of high school and college topics. This is such a great opportunity for students because the compact guarantees acceptance to SDSU for any Sweetwater graduate that maintains the minimum college requirement (our very own Ms. Aderholdt was part of one of the first cohorts to graduateJ)

This recognition is being received thanks to the hard work you are all doing to make sure that we are using our iPad devices in innovative and effective ways for our learners.
  • Accelerated Reader: If you are using the AR app in your classroom, some students have been experiencing issues with logging in. If that is the case, you can have the students go
