To begin the new school year, Principal Matis encouraged teachers to 'Be the Magic'. Not only did Mrs. Matis dress up as famous Disney characters during teacher development (Mulan, Belle, the list goes on), but she also motivated the entire faculty to look for and create little "Wow!" moments that promote a positive learning environment. As a part of the teacher development, teachers will be reading a copy of the book Lessons from the Mouse which is a guide for applying Disney World's secrets of success an organization, a career, and life in general. "It's not the magic that makes it work, it's the way we work that makes it magic."
