Good Morning Sanger High School

Hello Team...

I hope that everyone enjoyed the 3-day weekend. A little chilly but it is January. I have included a ton of information in this edition of Parham Pages. Please note specific dates with upcoming events. We are venturing into the 2nd half of our school year and we are picking up speed. Please continue to utilize Formative Assessment in order to drive instruction. It is essential to couple this process with Immediate (specific) Feedback. I truly believe that this will make the greatest impact with your students and our accountability system. Please continue to strive for make a difference!

Have a great week.

Go Indians!

Education Foundation Grant Applications

Grant applications are due next month. It is essential for SHS to participate in this process. I encourage staff members to apply. Can't win if you don't try! Also, it is important that you discuss with me in advance if you are applying for grants that include technology or academic programing. We must consider long-term sustainability and technical support. I have included a link to the Sanger Education Foundation website. Again, we can't be winners if we don't apply!

Budget Deadline- February 19th

Attention all Department Chairs, Coaches, and Sponsors...The deadline for ordering general supplies from your budget is February 19th. (This is not a negotiable date.) If you plan to use budget monies for summer workshops, department chairs must submit in writing plans of allocation. All plans are due to Mrs. Knight no later than Monday, February 15th.

Additionally, department chairs have expressed large ticket item needs. I am finalizing those needs for purchase. I want to thank each of you for your support as we have gone through budgetary adjustments. This is vital to ensure that we are able to support the needs of everyone.
