Thank you for your responses last week. We are continuing to conducting a self-assessment using a rubric developed by the Arkansas Leadership Academy. We have chosen to do this self-assessment as a whole staff in order to insure that all voices are heard. To minimize the time commitment, we have broken it into five short (3-5 question) surveys over the next five weeks. Each question asks for a 1-5 rating based on criteria at each end of the performance spectrum, and each rating has an attached area to provide evidence. This evidence would be any tangible examples that informed your rating. You may have one or two, or you may have ten. Please take the time to give this survey thought and attention. Your answers and examples will help us move forward as a school. As always, thank you for your time and input. Please click on the link below and answer questions for me.

Bowl-a-thon for Muscular Dystrophy

Our annual bowl-a-thon is an exciting time of competition between individuals. This year DECA is extending an invitation to the staff at AHS. Students who are participating will ask a staff member to bowl. Each person will pay $20.00, which includes 2 games of bowling and shoe rental. The remainder of the money will be donated to Muscular Dystrophy.

Students will compete against staff for bragging rights and medals will be awarded to the top male and female bowler. A trophy will be displayed with either the word students or teachers, based on the highest point total. Remember this is a friendly competition to raise money for Muscular Dystrophy.

Why participate?

· This provides an opportunity to develop positive relationships between students and staff.

· This provides funds to support the state and national civic consciousness activity.

· This assists in receiving recognition through Arkansas DECA and DECA, Inc.

· This provides a sense of competition and school pride.

Lanes will be assigned upon arrival, so if you would like to bowl with someone please write his/her name on this sheet. All money should be turned in by 3:45 Friday, March 4 to Mrs. Teresa Heflin in Room 302. Checks are made payable to AHS DECA.

AHS DECA is proud to be sponsoring this event. Hope to see you there!

Departments, if you would like to have a friendly competition we completely support that. However, each adult still must bowl with a student. We will collects the number of pins that each department bowls as a whole and highest total pins will win the department award.
